EL PASO – Nearly 60 parent and baby pairs congregated on El Paso’s Eastside Saturday for a potentially record breaking international diaper changing event. The El Paso event coordinator and owner of local cloth diaper business www.clothbottom.com, Amy Laffan, said the event was organized to create a buzz about eco-friendly alternative to disposable diapers. The event is in its second year. In 2011 a record setting of 5000 diapers were changed simultaneously around the world. This year the event took place at over 300 locations in 16 countries –200 more than last year.
