Changing diapers may not be the most fun thing to do but dozens of people participated in the Great Cloth Diaper Change on Saturday at Bethel College in an attempt to break a world record.
Nearly 400 locations around the world simultaneously changed cloth diapers to celebrate Earth Day awareness. The event is held in order to prove that cloth diapers are better for the environment as they take up 60 times less waste in landfills than disposables.
While changing diapers is something parents do everyday, this one was for the record books.
"Everything is very official through the Guinness World Records," said Diaper HQ owner Amber Sahlhoff. "We have some witnesses here to make sure that we're following all the guidelines of how many babies we have."
Just last week, the Bethel College men's futsal team set another Guinness World Record by playing the indoor soccer game for more than 35 consecutive hours.
Official verification usually takes about 4 weeks to complete.
