The Dirties on Diapering

In case you haven't heard, "The Dirties on Diapering" has been quite the topic of interest in the cloth diapering community here lately. The Dirties on Diapering started as a kickstarter project by Jamie Wilkinson. Her goal was to raise $6000 to fund the publishing of a book that utilizes photography to display cloth vs disposable diapering. Her plan is to go into detail all the reasons why cloth diapering is so much better for everyone.

After three attempts to gain all the funding needed, Jamie met (and exceeded) her goal just yesterday! This project is going to be such a huge step in the world of cloth diapering. Imagine being able to show your sposie using friends this book. Imagine the looks on their faces when they read the statistics and actually SEE how much better cloth is for babies and the environment. I am, personally, so excited that Jamie is finally able to move forward in publishing this book.

If you'd like to be a backer and take part in what is bound to be an historical moment, there is still time. Funding for The Dirties on Diapering is still open until tomorrow morning. In addition to being a part of something so monumental, there are added perks for backers. You can find all the details on the kickstarter project page here.  You can also find The Dirties on Diapering on Facebook, where Jamie often has giveaways for the fans. And you can follow the journey of this project on Jamie's blog.

If nothing else, spread the word! Let's help bring this project to the forefront and get cloth diapering noticed!
