Green Award finalists!!
We were delighted to have been shortlisted for The Green Corporate Citizen Award in April 2014! We have been working very hard to support and encourage the use of cloth nappies and this in turn has made a big difference to the environment! Recognition of our effort was very encouraging for our volunteers and "fluffy mums"!!
Congratulations to Westmeath Co. Council who won the award in our category! It's great to have such enthusiasm for the environment in our County Councils and to have their support extended to our library. We look forward to collaborating with Westmeath Co. Council in the coming weeks and months.
The Great Cloth Diaper Change is an international event where an attempt is made to break the world record for the number of cloth nappies changed at one time worldwide. We try to make a bit of a fuss of it and enjoy the community aspect of it too. It usually falls around the same time as real nappy week (in the UK), which brings sales and all sorts of nappy fun.
Last year there were venues in Cork, Nass and Newry and a total of 77 nappy changes in Ireland contributed to the 2013 record of the 8,301 nappies changed worldwide. We hope to be part of it all this year too!
You can keep up to date on all venues on the facebook page: The Great Cloth Diaper Change Ireland or drop us a line by e-mail for details closer to the date if you don't use facebook.
