Real Diaper Association


The Real Diaper Association is please to announce the opening of the RDA Seed Program, beginning in Canada.  What does this mean for you?  It means that Canadian parents and businesses can join RDA, and learn how to begin their own RDA in Canada.

What is the Seed Program?  The RDA Seed Program was created in order to help people create a Real Diaper Association in their country.  We believe that local solutions are best, soRDA Seed Program - helping countries spread cloth diapering into their local communities. instead of expanding RDA United States (RDA-US), we are encouraging interested individuals residing in other countries to build their own RDA under our guidance.

We are planting the seeds to help other countries begin their own Real Diaper Associations.  We will only help one country at a time, unless we decide that we can handle more than one.  Those interested in building a Real Diaper Association in their country can contact us at

Oh, Canada!  Our first RDA Seed country will be Canada because we have had more Canadians contact us about RDA than residents of any other country (outside of the U.S.).  If you are from another country and you are interested in participating in this program, please contact us at

JOIN RDA and help us create the cultural shift towards the use of REAL DIAPERS!

Join RDA and help us create the cultural shift towards the use of REAL DIAPERS!

How does it work?  The Real Diaper Association will offer individual memberships, business memberships, space in our Local Resource Directory, and our expertise in creating an organization to our Canadian members.  Canadian members will have Circles and Circle Leaders.  We offer this with the expectation that Canadian members are willing and able to create an RDA Canada (RDA-C).  We do not expect that every member who joins from Canada will take it upon themselves to create the RDA-C, but we do expect that some will.  If, within 6 months, no one has taken the initiative to begin creating RDA-C, we will reevaluate the situation.

We will accept Canadian members beginning today, 25 August 2004, until the date agreed upon that they will become independent from RDA-US.  This date is flexible but is not to exceed one year, unless there are acceptable reasons for extending the length of the relationship.

More Babies in Cloth Diapers.

The goal of RDA is to see more babies in cloth diapers.  We have limited our own scope to the U.S. because we want to concentrate on providing support for local members to find solutions, and we don't believe we could do this as well beyond national borders.  We are happy, though, to share our experience with others who want to build their own local solutions, and we look forward to working with Canadians and others to nurture the seeds of their own organizations.

The Real Diaper Association is excited to welcome Canadian members who share in our mission to create a cultural shift to increase the use of simple, reusable cloth diapers.  We encourage Canadian cloth diapering advocates and activists to begin reaching-out within their communities for the face-to-face sharing of knowledge that will make cloth diapering accessible and acceptable to Canadian parents. 

The Real Diaper Association is organized so that we can help our Circles and our members.  We are here for you.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at

Thank you for supporting the Real Diaper Association!
