So today was the Great Cloth Diaper Change, which was an event to record the most cloth diaper changes occur simultaneously. It was recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records which is pretty neat. But more importantly it is a day to promote the use of cloth diapers as a greener and cost-saving alternative to disposables. Now, I am not going to get on my soapbox about using cloth. It is not for everyone and it really takes a certain amount of commitment that many people can't or won't make. But I wonder why that is. Do you recycle? Of course you do. But WHY? You don't get paid to do it and you don't save money by doing it. Is it easy? For some it is, and for some it takes an extra bin in the kitchen or an extra run out to the trash area to put stuff in the recycle bin. You've made the commitment to do it and that is great for the environment. So is cloth diapering and really all it takes is the awareness that our actions affect the planet in deeper ways than just what we are doing at this very minute. Think about it, get educated and take action if your heart tells you that is the right thing.
And now, some cute baby photos from the event at Granola Babies in Costa Mesa CA. I changed Jack from a Softbums Omni to a Grovia AI2:
