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.

Thank you to Bumbleride owners, retailers, friends and community members for lending your hands in our beach clean up last week in Ocean Beach, CA at Tower 4. We set up some shade, equipped ourselves with reusable gloves, buckets and grabbers and set off to make a difference. Throughout our 2 hours of collective clean up, we saved the ocean from a ton of trash. Some of the most common items we picked up were plastic straws and snack wrappers, bottle caps, pieces of glass, cigarette butts (for parents to pick up), broken sand toys, cans, and much more.
Our goal with these clean ups is to help teach our little
citizens and future generations how cleaning up after ourselves and limiting
single use plastics prevent trash and debris from entering our oceans and
disrupting sea life. Every little bit makes a difference. Plus, they see
first-hand how they can make an immediate positive impact on their local
This clean up, we were excited to bring along a pre-production model of our newest Bumbleride family member, Era (featured below on right). Our new 4-wheel reversible seat stroller made with a unique, eco-friendly cork handle. We loved showing it off and seeing the great response!
Stay tuned for the next clean up on September 21st from 9-12pm for Coastal Cleanup Day hosted by I Love A Clean San Diego. We would love to have you and your little ones join us! Stay tuned for the Bumbleride cleanup site announcement.
The Cabrillo Sunset 5k was good for the soul! We sponsored the 5k race along with other local businesses in our community. Team Bumbleride consisted of staff and family with our kids ranging from age 2 to 16 joining in to run/walk. The venue was picturesque and we definitely conquered the steep hill up from the tidepools with strollers and toddlers in tow.
Cabrillo National Monument located Point Loma, CA is San Diego’s only National Park. This beautiful National Park is Bumbleride’s neighbor and our contributions and participation in this race support many incredible programs that we value, including science and education for underprivileged kids.
The location offers expansive views of both San Diego’s harbor and skyline on one side and the open ocean on the other. It is a spectacular view from up there! Bumbleride sponsored their Sunrise 5k back in February of 2019 and when offered a sponsorship opportunity for the Sunrise 5k, we jumped at the chance. We love to support our local community, encourage the outdoors and be in the fresh air with family.
Hope you’ll join us next year! Learn more here when the next race date is announced.
