Baby Junk to Host Omaha Second Annual World-Record Setting “Great Cloth Diaper Change” International Event
Baby Junk (www.omahababystore.com) will be host to the Omaha site of an international cloth diaper changing event taking place on Saturday, April 21, 2012, the day before Earth Day and during International Cloth Diaper Awareness Week. In its second year, with over 262 sites in 16 countries, The Great Cloth Diaper Change event will attempt to break last year’s Guinness World Record ™ of 5,026 cloth diapers changed simultaneously.
“Each year billions of disposable diapers enter landfills where it takes hundreds of years for them to decompose, if ever,” says Andrea Foley, owner of host Baby Junk in Rockbrook Village® at 10915 Prairie Brook Road. “Building off the success of last year’s event with 127 locations in five countries, we hope to show the entire world that cloth diapers are a real option for today’s modern families, particularly catching the eye of expecting and new parents who may be seeking more planet-friendly and affordable alternatives to disposable diapers.”
To date, there are more than 100 mom and baby pairs registered to participate in the Omaha event, which equates to approximately 250 people anticipated to be in attendance. Registration for this free event begins at 11 AM with the Great Cloth Diaper Change at 11:30 AM. All activities will take place at the Plaza in the middle of Rockbrook Village® at 108th and Center.
In addition to the Great Cloth Diaper Change world-record setting activity, there will be various booths with other natural and green living companies and other family-friendly activities.
