"Ask Me About Cloth Diapers" Earth Day and Beyond.
The April 2005 Earth Day Campaign found cloth diapering advocates proudly
wearing their "Ask Me..." buttons and other cloth diapering advocacy gear,
sharing diaper facts by distributing educational pamphlets, and planning or
attending Earth Day events. If you haven't already, please email us
your Earth Day advocacy story.
Cloth Diapering in the News. The Real Diaper Association has
collected and made available links to cloth diapering on-line news stories
on our Cloth Diapering in the News page.
Read the article, The Diaper Debate: Are Disposables as Green as Cloth?, where ABCnews.com reporter Amanda Onion sought out RDA for information on this May 26, 2005 article.
Non-Affiliation Statement. It has been brought to our attention by an RDA member that a
commercial store outside the U.S. is using the Real Diaper name. The Real Diaper Association is not affiliated
with this store. We are a non-profit organization with a mission to increase the use of simple, reusable cloth
diapers by planning campaigns, training organizers, distributing educational information, and supporting local groups.
You can read our ‘statement of no bias’ in the REAL DIAPER ASSOCIATION NEWS: Volume 8.
Tax-Exempt Paperwork Filed. We are happy to announce that the 501 (c)3 tax-exempt papers have been completed, reviewed, and filed with the state of California. The lawyer representing RDA has made it clear that IRS approval can take up to 6 months or more; we will keep you informed on the status. Because we are a new non-profit corporation with few assets, we do not expect a delayed response.
Real Nappy Week. The Women's Environmental Network in the UK is sponsoring Real Nappy Week, June 20-26. Local nappy (diaper) supporters are encouraged to create mountains of waste next to a pile of neatly folded diapers to create a strong image for a national photo call. Real Diaper Association extends our encouragement for Real Nappy Week and other work in support of cloth diapering throughout the world.
Volunteer Opportunity. Are you an enthusiastic person who would enjoy moderating our RDA Forums? RDA is looking for individuals who are willing to support and encourage fellow cloth diapering advocates on our message board. Contact us to volunteer.
