School of Cloth Businesses & Charities


2016 School of Cloth? Tell Me More. . .
 

Real Nappy Week in Europe has long been an opportunity for those working in the cloth diaper movement to spread the word about reusable nappies. In 2012, we tried to bring a Real Diaper Week to the U.S. leading up to the Great Cloth Diaper Change (GCDC). People loved the idea but had no time to implement it while preparing for all the great GCDC events. Hosts provided feedback that they wanted to participate, but at a time separate from the Great Cloth Diaper Change. For the past three years we have held successful School of Cloth events in the fall.

So, we’re pleased to announce the 4th annual School of Cloth taking place in October 2016! School of Cloth will be a month full of cloth diaper classes provided by participating Real Diaper Circles and Real Diaper Association businesses --- YOU! Attendees of classes can get certificates in cloth diapering subjects and enter a drawing for a chance to win a cloth diapering package and select a qualifying cloth diaper charity to receive a matching prize.

October is a great time to get more people into your store --- or participating with you in person in a community space or showroom --- before the holidays.
