Earlier this week we shared with you the Change 3 Things Challenge for 2011. The goal is to have 100,000 parents committed to change at least 3 diapers a day. We believe 3 diapers is a manageable goal for that almost any parent can do.   To assist you as you share the benefits of cloth diapering with others, we’ve created some promotional materials. We’ve created a t-shirt and a silicone band that you can wear. Our hope is that these materials serve as conversation starters.   We also have designed Change 3 Things Share Cards with some quick facts
