2013 Great Cloth Diaper Change and Honor The Earth Giveaway Hop!

Honor the Earth Giveaway
 
Welcome to the Honor the Earth Giveaway Hop, hosted by Happy Mothering and Brittleby's Corner. Members of the Green Moms Network are excited to bring you great prizes to celebrate Earth Day, all valued at $25+ . After entering my giveaway, be sure to visit the other blogs listed under the Rafflecopter form to enter more great Honor the Earth giveaways.  Giveaways begin April 9th at 12:00am (EST) and will end on April 23rd at 12:00am (EST).  Good luck!
 
This year, I'll be "Honoring The Earth" by attending the Great Cloth Diaper Change.This will be my 2nd year hosting a GCDC event and I'm super excited.  I love the Great Cloth Diaper Change event because it spreads cloth diapering awareness and raises money for the Real Diaper Association

 
In case you're not familiar with the Great Cloth Diaper Change, here's some more info for you.  The Great Cloth Diaper Change event's purpose is to not only break the Guinness World Record, but to also help spread awareness that cloth diapering is truly the best diapering option for your baby. It's eco-friendly and eliminates unnecessary waste in our landfills. Cloth diapering is also budget friendly and will save families thousands of dollars during the years they diaper their children.  This year's event will be held on Saturday, April 20th at 11:00am local time!

The 2012 world record was 8,251 qualifying participants at 189 locations on 4 continents! This far exceeded the 2011 record of 5,026 simultaneous cloth diaper changes!

So, onto the GIVEAWAY! 
 I'm thrilled to be giving away some cloth diaper goodies... A  bumGenius cloth diaper and Earth Mama Angel Baby's Bottom Balm.
 


I've been cloth diapering my 2-year old since 2011.  My fluffy adventures began when I had the opportunity to meet Jennifer Labit on August 13, 2011.  Jennifer Labit is the CEO of Cotton Babies and the creator of bumGenius, Flip and Econobum cloth diapers.   Jennifer gave me my cloth diaper start and I've been using bumGenius pocket diapers ever since.   bumGenius cloth diapers truly make cloth diapering easy and are available in 2 closure styles.  Some awesome features include:  
  •  3x3 snap down design adjusts the sizing to fit small, medium and large sizes (approximately 7-35+ pounds).
  • Diapers are bundled with two inserts: a newborn insert for newborns and a one-size insert for your older baby.
  • Wide slot opening makes it easy to stuff and remove insert.
I love my bumGenius diapers and know you will love them, too! 


Whether you use cloth diapers or disposables diapers, at some point you've used a diaper cream.  One of my all-time favorite cloth diaper creams is from Earth Mama Angel Baby... Angel Baby Bottom Balm.  Angel Baby Bottom Balm scores a big fat ZERO on the EWG Skin Deep Data Base.  Earth Mama's #1 best selling salve is clinically tested, safe for cloth diapers, and safely battles existing diaper rash and protects against flare ups. The only balm made with organic olive oil infused with a proprietary blend of naturally antibacterial and antifungal organic herbs, shea butter and pure essential oils, soothes thrush, itchy bug bites, scrapes, chicken pox, minor rashes, and burns. 

To win the fluffy prizes, simply follow the easy Rafflecopter instructions below.  This giveaway, as well as the other "Honor The Earth" giveaways, will begin on April 9th at 12:00am (EST) and will end on April 23rd at 12:00am (EST).  Each blog in the "Honor The Earth" Giveaway Hop has a sustainable living themed prize valued at $25.

Happy Blogging!
