united by cloth

The 2016 Great Cloth Diaper Change took place on April 23, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. local time. 

 We celebrated another successful, fun event focused on cloth diaper education! Over 5,037 cloth diapering families helped us spread the cloth diapering love at events in 19 countries around the world for the sixth annual GCDC.

Congratulations 2016 Great Cloth Diaper Change participants, you rocked it!

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 2016.
