What a great weekend we had for Earth Day. At Boutique Bummis we celebrated with the Great Cloth Diaper Change event, which we co-hosted with Baby Auric Diaper Service. We had 93 parents and babies gather together from all parts of Montreal, Laval, Sherbrooke, Trois Rivieres and even some coming from the Quebec City area, all to celebrate cloth diapers. It was so much fun seeing all the cloth diapered babies in the room!
While we counted down to 12:30 exactly, we read some wonderful stories about respecting our planet in honor of earth day. We followed that with a great parent-baby yoga warm-up with Martina from StudioVie and face-painting and animation by A Painted Bouquet and Lulu the Clown. The the main event was a grand success thanks to our 3 official witnesses: human rights activist, Milton James Fernandes, Jamie Orchard from Global Television, and cloth diaper expert Lesley Everest, from MotherWit Doula Care. They were incredibly wowed with the families that attended and genuinely thrilled to be a part of our event.
Thank you to everyone who participated and braved that less-than-perfect weather to join us. We’ve been very excited to see photographs posted from around the world in the past couple of days, so we want to be sure to share favorites from our event. See more photographs on our Facebook page. If you want to re-live the event on video, you can see also us on Global Montreal!
