The purpose of the GCDC is to raise awareness of the benefits of using cloth diapers.
It is not necessary to currently be using cloth in order to participate in the event.
Diapers will be available if you wish to participate but do not own a cloth diaper.
Some of the great benefits of using cloth diapers include:
• Affordability – Using cloth may save up to $2,500
• Environmentally – Disposable diapers take more than 500 years to decompose
• Health – Less diaper rash and allergic reactions
• Fashionable – With many colors and prints to choose from…how can you resist?
Our current sponsors of the Healthy Baby Expo include: Mother Earth Baby, Cre8 Solutions, Zink Shirts, Keech Photography, Oswego Printing Company and the Lake Ontario Conference Center.
We still have sponsorship and vendor opportunities for this year’s event.
