    In an effort to heighten the awareness of cloth diapers, one organization is going to shoot for a Guinness world record breaking diaper changing.

    The Great Cloth Diaper Change is planning a mass changing on April 23rd at 9:00 a.m. Events are being created all over the Bay Area, and anyone can join in.

    The Examiner points out the average baby has 6 diaper changes a day and wears diapers for about two years, which works out to 4,380 diapers. The group is pushing for people to use cloth diapers that can be cleaned and reused, rather than filling our landfills with the plastic ones.
