#ClothCommunity Day Celebrates Diversity and Unity
Today, February 2nd, all members of the cloth diaper community are invited to share positive messages with the #clothcommunity hashtag on Social Media Outlets!
Cloth diaper enthusiasts are invited to share positive affirmations on February 2nd through their favorite social media sites, emphasizing the belief that “there is no one right way to cloth diaper.” To participate, simply hand write or print a sign with your unique affirmation and #clothcommunity. You may also use the phrase
“We don’t all cloth diaper the same way, and that’s okay. Love your babies and love your fluff.”
Be sure to include the hashtag #clothcommunity. Hold the sign up in front of yourself and take a photo to personalize your message. Share the positivity far and wide – on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, blogs, and more!

The modern cloth diaper virtual community started with a few passionate, committed individuals. Today, it is a thriving international community, welcoming new individuals and families every day.
Families choose cloth for a variety of reasons; often turning to blogs, retail sites, local and national groups, as well as manufacturers, for information. Many come to save money, reduce their environmental footprint, or to find a natural diapering alternative. They stay because they are welcomed into a vibrant community.
Any community infused with such a diversity of individuals, often relying on online communication, is bound to experience challenges. Mingled with positive advice and burgeoning friendships, our community sees differences of opinions, conflicting advice, and passionate discourse. This can sometimes lead to contention, but these differences don’t need to divide or define us.
Every individual or organization that shares their passion and commitment to cloth diapers contributes to our collective community. We are enriched by these contributions, often accomplishing amazing things every day; from helping a mom decide where to start with cloth, to troubleshooting a laundry routine with a frustrated dad, to helping make cloth accessible for a family in need, to creating new and innovative cloth diapering options.
Just as there is no one right way to be a good parent, #clothcommunity affirms that there is no one right way to cloth diaper your child. When our in-person and online interactions put this idea at the forefront, emphasizing respect and community, we all benefit.
Let’s celebrate diversity on February 2nd and unite our cloth diaper community! #ClothCommunity
