Promoting the Cloth Diaper Industry

2011 RDIA Cloth Diaper Business Conference

Spreading Cloth Diapers Locally with RDA
Incentives, Subsidies, and More
Wednesday, September 28, 9:00 – 10:20AM

Want to see more local cloth diaper use? Join RDA efforts to help families in your community learn about and acquire reusable cloth diapers.

Imagine a community where a majority of families use cloth diapers. This isn’t a virtual community, but your actual neighborhood. Where do these families get their diapers? You, of course! But how did they all choose cloth diapers? The Samsons got a flyer about an incentive program for purchasing cloth diapers from their municipal waste agency. The Hsus read about the same incentive program in the local paper but 

used it to subsidize a diaper service. Meanwhile, the Hailes got some cloth diapers from the local refugee support group and the Delmonicos got a certificate (to your store) from another local social service agency. All are participating in their local Real Diaper Circle, where they receive support and help spread cloth diapering to other families. The Jacksons saw these Real Diaper babies in the park and joined the group to find out more. Please join Heather McNamara of the Real Diaper Association for this breakout session as we (yes, “we” includes YOU!) move forward in making this scenario a reality.
