Our Mission: The Real Diaper Association is a collective non-profit organization in which parents and small businesses take the lead in creating a cultural shift to increase the use of simple, reusable cloth diapers. We connect current cloth diapering parents to the long history of cloth diapering. Cloth diapers are real diapers. The Association organizes local advocates and activists for cloth diapers through a member-supported resource center which plans campaigns, trains organizers, distributes educational information, supports local groups, and connects users to the Cloth Diaper industry. Local Real Diaper Circles reach users face-to-face with knowledge and tools to make cloth diapering accessible and acceptable to parents, who have the power to change the world one baby at a time.
GCDC History: Judy Aagard’s desire to celebrate Earth Day by hosting a family event for the Tiny Tots community quickly morphed into a dream to set a Guinness World Record for the most cloth diapers changed simultaneously. Shortly thereafter, The Great Cloth Diaper Change was conceived and organized by a small group of cloth diaper enthusiasts who were eager to demonstrate that cloth diapers are a real option for today’s families. Judy passed the GCDC organizing torch to RDA in 2012 so that the event could grow and continue to support cloth diaper advocacy around the globe. RDA is honored to be able to advance Judy's vision each year and continue to touch communities through this fun, family friendly, cloth diapering event.
