If people felt strongly about this why didn't you vote on it?

Maybe we need to mention Australasian or International.. I just figure the cloth community isn't constrained to TNN so we can't MAKE retailers choose the event that TNN happens to choose.

What do the Aussies call their RNW? If we changed it to Australiasian - that would be better (the Aussies perhaps might do it as well if they know we are going to be doing the same dates).

On that thread it mentioned it was Australasian Reusable Nappy week.

I've just been thinking about this while hanging out my washing and I think a twice a year thing is actually a fantastic idea as it means that pregnant mums have the opportunity to attend an event sometime during their pregnancy, and since it is 6 monthly they wouldn't necessarily need to make a purchasing decision in the first trimester.

Why not just claim one date and label it NZ Nappy Week and not worry too much about what the rest of the world is doing?

ETA - just to keep it simple and to be able to plan ahead..

That is a great idea. Personally I am happy to do both :)

i guess because then you would have to get everyone to agree to this, like the NZNA TNN and any involved retailers etc

and i guess if its only a TNN reusable nappy week (as in TNN inc and retailers) then maybe it needs to be named as such to avoid confusion? i know that naming these weeks causes a lot of disagreement too, if NZ was to come on board into Australasian real nappy week, then are there any places overseas that TNN can come onboard with, to show we are sharing the week with Aussie?

I am also ok with both, as long as they are called something different so no confusion :D

just found out that some USA stores also offering Real Nappy Week specials so it is pretty much worldwide.

From my perspective
A vote was taken - it was public and was left open for contriubtions.
We have some membership cross over with Nappy Alliance members - they didn't vote against.

Go real took 3 months to answer emails, Austrailan Nappy Network answer in two days, and have invited us to join their regular planing meetings.

And... Austrailian Nappy Network use the name "Reusable Nappy Week" - which does help differentiate it from the "real nappies" brand.


And y'know it's no harm if we try for a year and revert next year.

I think it is totally fine if we just clearly use the different names ... then I can't see it as a problem :D
Do you think we could get Australia to call it "Australasian Real Nappy Week" along with us?
