Change starts here!

GCDC17_Earth Day

April 22, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. local time. 

This year, the Great Cloth Diaper Change coincides with Earth Day, (April 22). This provides us with an even greater opportunity to reach more individuals in our local communities. We encourage our Event Hosts to partner with local Earth Day festivities and groups in their area to reach people who may have no experience using reusable cloth diapers.

Join us and help us change diapers one baby at a time!

Visit our Host page for more information on the requirements of hosting a GCDC event.

The only way to change a diaper is one baby at a time!

In 2016, we had over 5,037 cloth diapering families  spread the cloth diapering love at events in 19 countries around the world.

Advocating for cloth diapers with the Real Diaper Association

Help spread the word about cloth diapers.  Please join the Real Diaper Association, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that presents the Great Cloth Diaper Change each year.

Let’s get more babies into cloth diapers! The Real Diaper Association supports volunteers in the US and Canada in advocating toward this goal in their communities.

Want to see more evidence-based information to support families in cloth diapering? The Real Diaper Association worked with laundry experts to compile easy wash instructions and laundry science. Find our wash formula here: RDA continues to conduct direct research on various cloth diapering science topics (such as washing cloth diapers in the presence of a yeast infection.)

Want new parents to have access to a community of cloth diapering? Real Diaper Circle Leaders are trained in nonviolent communication (NVC) to support families with evidence-based information on cloth diapering.

Love the Great Cloth Diaper Change? Events celebrating cloth diapering wouldn’t happen without the Real Diaper Association!  Join us this spring for our Get Real campaign. RDA’s School of Cloth will take place in November 2017.
