“Going green with baby? From wooden rattles to glass bottles, here are sustainable baby gear choices.
If you’re someone who shops with sustainability in mind and values products made from natural, eco-friendly materials and organic ingredients, you’ll likely want to continue that trend after you become a parent. Luckily, the baby market is on your side—there are so many (amazing) green baby items to choose from when you’re building your registry.
Bumbleride strollers are made from 100% recycled PET and have kept over half a million water bottles out of landfills since 2011. The Indie is an all-terrain stroller that will take you from the newborn days through toddlerhood.” – Babylist
“Clek car seats are more than just sleek and beautiful. The company was the first to remove brominated and chlorinated flame-retardants from their car seats and even offer an ethically-sourced 100% Merino wool option for this seat. The Liing is comfortable, convenient and extremely safe. “ Read the entire Green Baby Registry .
As the year comes to a close we want to say thank you. Thank you for your support of small businesses like ours. Thank you for recognizing the importance of high quality products that will last for years to come. Thank you for recognizing the part we all play in reducing our impact on the world around us and training our little ones to do the same.
2019 was the year of Era. After many years of development, we were happy to launch our first reversible seat modular stroller built for terrain and designed for the city. We know Era will fill a need that families have for versatility and comfort without sacrificing quality and durability.
Here are a few more highlights from this past year:
• Reached and surpassed our 1 million plastic water bottles upcycled into fabrics milestone.
• Improved Packaging (increased percentage of curbside recyclable packaging, reduced use of plastic bags, launched tabbed accessory box designs to reduce tape use and bulk).
• Participated in our 15th beach cleanup helping remove over 100 lbs. of debris this year including Coastal Cleanup Day, the Creek To Bay Cleanup and hosted cleanups at Moonlight and Ocean beaches in CA.
• 1% of Tourmaline Wave colorway sales supported “I Love a Clean San Diego” Kid’s Ocean Day (bringing children to the beach for their first time and first beach cleanup) and the Clean Beach Coalition (additional trash and recycle bins placed at beaches on busiest days to prevent pollution).
We are constantly looking for ways to do good. Whether it be the materials we use, our manufacturing processes or the way we run our business, we know we can always grow and improve.
We are grateful that you’ve made Bumbleride the choice for your active eco-minded family. Please stay tuned for color updates, improvements in materials and new accessories from Bumbleride in 2020!
Matt & Emily (Founders) and the entire Bumbleride Team
Members of the Bumbleride team and local families headed to Sunset Cliffs Natural Park on Saturday, September 21st to stroll the area for trash and debris. We brought our own buckets, gloves and trash grabbers to help beautify one of San Diego’s most frequented sites. We were so excited to see multiple families with strollers supporting the cause!
We recorded the various items we collected (bottle caps, straws, single use plastics, to name a few) and talked to the kids about how these items, when left on the street or beach, negatively affect our environment and its inhabitants. It is so important for us to teach these little citizens about protecting our planet so future generations can enjoy all of the same beauty that we have today.
“Thanks for coming out again and making SCNP cleaner and safer! At the end of the day, 73 lbs. of trash and 25 lbs. of recyclables were collected. Good job volunteers!!!!!! “- Ranger A. Dominguez, host at Sunset Cliffs Natural Park.
In just three hours, more than 6,500 volunteers cleared nearly 145,000 pounds (72,500 tons) of waste and debris from streets, canyons, parks and the coastline in communities across San Diego County for the 35th annual Coastal Cleanup Day, organized by the nonprofit I Love A Clean San Diego. The day’s environmental protection effort took place at 107 sites around the region and prevented the equivalent of 5,500 garbage trucks emptying their contents into the ocean.
Do you clean up your local community? Share a photo to social media with @bumbleride tag to let us know what you’re doing in your local area.
Did you know Bumbleride partnered with I Love A Clean San Diego this year to donate 1% of Tourmaline Wave stroller and accessory sales to the Non-Profit that is committed to a zero waste, litter-free, and environmentally engaged San Diego region.
” From the jump, it’s clear that the Bumbleride Era is in an overachiever when it comes to stroller design. This new single-seater stroller is made largely of recycled materials and has unique (and very comfortable!) cork handlebars. These details make the Era both beautiful in visual design and eco-friendly when it comes to a carbon footprint.
In addition to being on good terms with Mother Earth, the Bumbleride Era is also exceptionally family-friendly. With reversible seating that features a fully-reclining seat, the Era newborn-compatible. Plus, even the tiniest of tots will feel comfortable while strolling with the Bumbleride Era’s unique air-filled tires. With 10 inch tires in the front and 12 inch tires in the back, combined with state-of-the-art suspension, the Era will stay steady on any and all types of terrain. Finally, the Bumbleride Era features an easy fold and can stand on its own when folded, making it easy to store in your home, your car’s trunk, or even in the corner of your favorite restaurant whenever you’re out on the town. “
