Change 3 Things: 3 cloth diapers. One planet. Big impact.

So today I found an amazing site that supports and give tips to parents who cloth diaper their babies. They're also encouraging parents who don't, to take baby steps towards clothing their babies. They have recently started an awareness campaign called Change 3 Things, to help reduce the waste caused by disposable nappies!

How to join the movement:

1. Click 'like' on their Change 3 Things Facebook page.

2. Share the page with your Facebook, Twitter and blogger friends.

3. Make sure you change 3 cloth nappies a day.

Their goals are:
  • 100,000 parents committed to change 3 cloth diapers per day.*
  • 30-50 million pounds of prevented landfill waste.*
  • 100 million disposable diapers not purchased.*
  • $24 million of combined savings for participating families.**
Three nappies a day per baby can most certainly make a difference, in my previous blog To cloth or not to cloth? you would have read that it takes 300 year for ONE disposable to breakdown. Every nappy makes a difference.

Help change the world, one nappy at a time.

* Numbers are approximate and based on information published in the Environmental Agency's Science Report SC010018/SR2.
** Based on approximately $0.25 per disposable diaper NOT purchased by participants because they chose to change a cloth diaper instead.
