The Great Cloth Diaper Change
Help set a new world record in 2015!
What is the Great Cloth Diaper Change?
The Great Cloth Diaper Change (GCDC) is a Guinness World Record opportunity to increase the awareness of reusable cloth diapers. Hundreds of hosts, including Zoolikins, will hold events in communities around the world with a simultaneous cloth diaper change. The GCDC is a worldwide event that takes place at 11:00AM local time around the globe. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, April 18th.
What happens at the Great Cloth Diaper Event?
The event will bring over 100 families to each of the locations in order to participate in the Great Cloth Diaper Change. According to World Guinness Record organizers, all participants must be within an enclosed area. ‘A participant’ is ‘one adult changing one diaper aged child’. The Change takes place at 11:00AM local time all around the world thus creating a 'rolling change'.
The event itself only takes a few minutes but the families are welcome to stay, mingle and enjoy the fun, swag, and prizes! The event gives participants the chance to meet other environmentally conscious families in the community.
How do I register?
It is a free event, but participants must register so that we can make sure of sufficient space within the area and of course, sufficient swag and raffle prizes. Register at Scottsdale or Chandler! You will receive updates on prizes and swag bags! See pictures & fun from last year on our Facebook!
SUPPORT THE FOOD BANKS & DONATE!!!! (and get an extra Raffle Ticket!)
Again, this year, Zoolikins is hoping to foster a ‘What can we GIVE’ sentiment, as opposed to ‘What can we GET’. Have no fear, there will still be swag and raffles, but we've partnered with Vista del Camino Food Bank in Scottsdale and The Chandler Christian Community Center in Chandler to collect donations for local families in need throughout the month up to the day of the GCDC.
Acceptable items include:
Disposable Diapers (Size 3, 4, 5, 6)
Disposable Baby Wipes
Canned black beans
Canned pinto beans
Gently used clothing and baby items
We ask that you keep in mind that items must not be past the expiry date and that used items should be clean and ‘gently used’.
An extra raffle ticket will be given to all those who bring a donation.
