“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
“For Moms Who Value Sustainability – The latest release from Bumbleride is a stylishly sustainable reversible stroller. The adjustable handlebar is made from all-natural cork and the stroller’s fabrics are made from recycled water bottles. All-wheel suspension and air-filled tires help make it a smooth ride for your little one (an air pump is included), and an extra-large canopy provides full shade even when your tot is fully reclined for a snooze.” – Working Mother
“As parents who know that parenting without the right gear in a city can be like taking on a White Squall on an ocean voyage, we couldn’t be more thrilled about the new Bumbleride Era. Built for all-terrain adventures, the Era makes city-life nothing but smooth sailing.“
“There are numerous reasons why we already love anything and everything by Bumbleride.
They’re owned and designed by parents who actually understand our wants, needs and wildest dreams.
They’re dedicated to pursuing sustainable production methods and always opt for the cleanest option when it comes to choosing materials.
They’re conscious of our children’s comfort, safety and growing bodies.
Known for ticking all the right boxes, Bumbleride has done it yet again with the Era Stroller.
While city-strollers need to have a small footprint (which the Era does – only 24.5” W), they also need to be extremely durable, ergonomically designed for parents of all heights, comfortable and safe for babies riding and able to carry your daily groceries, diaper bag, umbrella, older child’s scooter, and the family pet. (Okay, maybe not Spot.)
City-strollers are essentially a car and you need to know that they’re going to get you where you need to go efficiently and effectively. They need to be able to fit in elevators, cafes, and not take up an entire room in your home when not in use. It’s also nice when they look super sleek!
THE BEST FEATURES OF THE BUMBLERIDE ERA
It’s infant compatible without any attachments. (Car seat adaptor and bassinets sold separately if preferred)
It features a fully reclinable seat that can be both parent and forward facing.
The eco-friendly and machine washable fabrics are made from OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified post-consumer PET water bottles, which means they are kind to the earth and your tot.
The adjustable handlebar is made from smooth and sustainable cork. Naturally non-toxic, it is one of the details we love most about the Era!
It has a single compact fold with auto-lock and self standing stow.
It comes with a super extendable UPF 45+ sun canopy. (Makes day-time naps a breeze!)
Secure foot break is even flip-flop friendly.
The storage basket can and will literally save the day.
Designed with air-filled wheels and all-wheel suspension for the smoothest ride.
It’s car seat compatible. The optional adaptors are compatible with Clek, Nuna, Cybex car seats and more.
It comes with a three year manufacturer’s warranty.
Amazing all on its own, you can also get a sibling Mini Board to attach on the back, a rain cover, footmuff and liner for chilly days as well as a travel bag. Designed with your whole family in mind, the Bumbleride Era truly is the innovative stroller you’ve been waiting for.”
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.
