Cloth diapers have come a long way in recent years, and our goal is to generate awareness, as cloth diapering once again becomes mainstream.
A few facts that might surprise you:
§ From birth-to-potty training, each baby will wear about 6000 diapers, the equivalent of 1 ton of garbage
§ Cloth diapers are VERY affordable. (Save as much as $2000 per baby in cloth!)
§ Modern cloth diapers are easy to use, comfortable and adorable
Members of community are invited to attend our fun-filled family event this Saturday, April 21st to show your support for families using cloth diapers, Montreal cloth diaper subsidy programming and local environmental initiatives.
Event Location: 4302 St-Laurent, Montreal
The official record breaking event will be taking place at 12:30pm EST. Arrive by 12:00pm for opening ceremonies. What better way to celebrate Earth Day?

GUIDELINES FOR PARTICIPATION
Each participant must be paired with one child 39 inches or shorter.
Each child must be changed into a cloth, reusable diaper that can be purchased online, at a brick & mortar store, or is offered through a diaper service. It doesn’t matter what diaper type a child arrives in.
At the sound of a loud start signal, all participants must remove their child’s existing diaper and properly put on a 100% reusable cloth diaper.
At the signal to start: Each participant should hold the clean diaper they will change the baby into high in the air (the photographer should take ―before‖ shots).
Each participant should change their child’s diaper (no photographs or video should
be taken during this time).
When the diaper change is complete, each participant should hold their freshly changed child in the air (the photographer should take ―after‖ shots).
