Kelowna parents were among a worldwide group from 14 countries attempting to set a Guinness World Record for cloth diaper changes at one time Saturday morning.

More than 30 parents turned out to participate in the event, co-sponsored by Tidy Tushees Diaper Service and Stacey Jackson with Tender Tushies.

Organizers were hoping to have 8,000 babies changed at the same time, 11 a.m. Kelowna time on April 20.

The fun event also had a greater purpose in mind, to encourage more parents to use cloth diapers because disposable diapers fill up the landfills and are an environmental hazard because they take years to degrade.
