The Great Cloth Diaper Change
Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM (CDT)
All over the world, parents and children are gathering on the same date to break the Guinness Book of World Record's record for the greatest number of babies changed into a reusable cloth diaper at the same time! Come and be a part of this record breaking event with us! In addition to the diaper change, we will be collaborating with the Earth Day event held the same day. Check out their link for all the fun and exciting activities http://www.itmeanstheworld.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=162&Itemid=133 This will be an amazing day, with nice open space, lots of family oriented things to see and do, there will be local vendors promoting their goods. You do not have to participate in the diaper change in order to attend the Earth Day Celebration ~ you can come for one or the other or both!

When & Where
Sweet Peaz Diaper Service and Mothering By Nature Center
Sweet Peaz Diaper Service is a locally-owned and operated cloth diaper company that services the Southern suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, along with the Northwestern cities of Indiana. Cloth diapering is clearly recognized as an important way in which we can positively impact the well-being of our environment, and ultimately that of the Earth. We are firm believers that cloth diapering is where the industry is headed, and happily, we can report that more and more eco-conscious consumers are turning to the reusability and sustainability of cloth versus paper. Disposable paper diapers fill our landfills and do not biodegrade for up to 500 years! That's right, 500 years. This is the reason that Sweet Peaz Diaper Service exists, to prevent further insult to an already stressed environment.
Beyond the ethical arguments, cloth diapering is a wonderful way to save money while benefitting the current generations and those yet to come.
Mothering By Nature Center is a natural parenting boutique & resource center offering a large variety of cloth diapering options, natural rash creams & lotions, leak proof cloth training pants, baby wearing products, natural toys, vitamins, herbs, and re-usable lunch items! As a resource & referral center, we offer information and support pertaining to pregnancy, birth, baby & beyond. Chiropractor & doula consultations & various classes and workshops are also available!
