VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Diaper Junction, a cloth diaper retailer and diaper service company, will host part of an international cloth diaper changing event on Saturday, April 21, 2012 at 11 a.m. Eastern Time at 1209 Baker Road in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This is part of The Great Cloth Diaper Change, a larger international event in its second year that includes more than 300 sites in 16 countries.
Last year's inaugural event set a Guinness World Record™ of 5,026 cloth diapers changed simultaneously. Organizers hope to break last year's record while raising awareness of the affordable and earth-friendly alternative to disposable diapers. The cloth diaper change is held in honor of International Cloth Diaper Awareness Week and the upcoming Earth Day.
"We want people to think about reducing their contributions to landfills by using cloth diapers instead of disposables," said Bryana Guckin, president of Diaper Junction. "The cloth diapers of today are not the same as the ones our parents and grandparents used. They're more comfortable for babies to wear and easier for parents to fasten and launder."
The Diaper Junction location has nearly 100 baby and parent pairs registered for The Great Cloth Diaper Change. There also will be a number of activities and vendors available at the event, including face painting, a raffle, the Twisted Sisters Cupcake Truck, the Virginia Beach Stroller Striders and a Knapsack Consignment Shop booth.
Event participants are invited to contribute $1 or more to benefit the Real Diaper Association, a non-profit organization that helps families in the U.S. and Canada find and use cloth diapers.
