Cloth Diaper Carnival VIII is September 7!

This next carnival is all about Cloth Diaper Awareness. I want everyone to post a blog entry about how they think we can promote or educate others about cloth diapers. No idea is too crazy! Remember, I am the one trying to get cloth on The Ellen Show!

TV, local outreach, classes, etc. You can write about things you have done or grand ideas that seem crazy but just might work! If some ideas are good enough or feasible maybe we can make it happen somehow!

Everyone will post their entry on or before September 7!

I will also post my entry along with a McLinky so everyone can add their posts.  The McLinky will be open for 2 days.  I will include the codes.  Everyone who participates needs to add the code to their website so that readers can go from one blog to the next.  If you have technical troubles you can link to my post with instructions for readers to visit the other entries.

Your post should have this at the very beginning:

This post is part of Cloth Diapering Bloggers’ and Dirty Diaper Laundry’s Cloth Diaper Carnival VIII: Cloth Diaper Awareness.  Please visit the other bloggers participating by following the links at the end of this post.

I look forward to hearing your creative ideas or experiences!

    I think it would be really awesome if someone could get some cloth diaper ads on TV. But that would be super expensive…

    • Hi Rebecca,

      I agreed with you. Even with the raise in trend of using reusable diapers, but I watched more ads on disposable diapers compared to cloth diapers. I wonder why….

      Thank to kdrosas for the great post…

    We could raise awareness by selling then in more local stores and not just mainly online. I had no idea that cloth diapers had ivolved so much until a couple months ago when a friend showed me what they look like. People automatically assume they are prefolds and safety pins. Commercials, radio commercials, selling them at local stores (Target, Walmart, Department Stores, etc). If people see them they would be more likely to be interested. It would even be cool to have the hospitals give them to new Mom’s just like they give them a diaper bag with formula. Anything we can do is better than what we are doing now.

  • Ohh! Can’t wait to read all the blogs!

  • Rebecca

    I don’t have a blog, but they need to be available at Target and Walmart!

    I don`t have a blog but I started a local cloth diaper group, after being sick of looking for an existing one. Another mom I know got tired of the crazy shipping prices so she started her own business to sell locally.

  • @Rebecca They used have bumgenius at Target store, but they stopped carrying them there. I thought it was stupid they stopped carrying them personally.

    • O yea, and I agree that more mainstream stores should start carrying them in the brick & mortar locations. It isn’t fair to only have availability to disposables at a location. I would like for once to just be able to go to the store, walk up and touch a diaper I would like to buy.

  • I know that some stores already have this idea, but I’ve been thinking about “at-home parties.” You know what I’m talking about, candles, Avon,jewelry, pampered chef, etc. I could use my own stash and talk about different types of modern cloth diapering and my laundry routine. I could team up with a store and get something free for a certain number of people coming and a percentage or something if guests buy something. Something like that, ya know. It’s the only thing I’m really passionate about with those types of parties.

    Ellen would make CDing seem like so much fun!! This is right up Oprah’s alley, too:) But anyway, I agree that places like BRU should start carrying a few different types. It is so cool that Costco sells Grovias now, even though they don’t have the actual cloth part.
