Please read the letter below from the Real Diaper Association

Thank you for your continuing support of cloth diapers and cloth diaper education. We are working to grow the Real Diaper Association for you.

This year, support a change in diapers!

We're poised, POISED, I say!!

The public is focused on the environment, on the health of their children, and on their tightening budgets. Cloth diapers have undergone a transformation and the industry is now able to provide realistic, simple solutions to benefit every family.

The Real Diaper Association leads a growing, passionate grassroots movement of parents ready to help other families find and use reusable cloth diapers. We have the research to support our efforts and are making inroads with hospitals, daycares, municipal governments, social service agencies, and pediatricians to change diapering practice to one that is more environmentally and economically feasible. We also work directly with parents via volunteer-led support and outreach groups across the country.

With growing awareness of the downsides of single-use plastics, the public is ready for our message and we are positioned to make a clear, immediate impact on diaper choice.
In order to do so, we need funding. Therefore, we are participating in the San Diego Foundation's giveBIG event on December 14th and 15th.

Here's the great news: For 36 hours (beginning 7am Pacific Time on Wednesday and ending 7pm Pacific Time on Thursday), any donation (up to $10,000) to the Real Diaper Association through Better Giving  will be matched by the San Diego Foundation!  What a way to make an impact with your money!

Executive Director, Real Diaper Association

Every day, parents around the world choose 100% reusable cloth diapers for their children.

The cloth diaper movement is gaining momentum for a number of reasons. People everywhere are looking for ways to reduce waste and toxins in the world our children will inherit. Using 100% reusable cloth diapers helps preserve the planet and demonstrates how individual choices can have a cumulative impact. Reducing household expenses is also a priority for many families.

Please join us as a member today - annual individual membership is still only $25. Your donation is tax-deductible, and membership ensures that we'll be able to continue our grassroots advocacy.

Real Diaper Association Mission Statement:
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 U.S. Cloth Diaper industry. Local Real Diaper Circles reach users face-to-face with knowledge and tools to make cloth diapering accessible and acceptable to U.S. parents, who have the power to change the world one baby at a time.
