Coastal Cleanup Day | I Love A Clean San Diego

Bumbleride Cleanup #15

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.

Beach Cleanup #13 + Era Test Drive Recap

July 23, 2019

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 environment.

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.

Moonlight Beach Meetup + Cleanup #12

It could not have been a prettier winter day to get Bumbleride families, friends and their little ones out for a beach cleanup in Encinitas, California. Our little supporters cleaned things up quite nicely! We even inspired visiting beach-goers and their families to join the cleanup.

It’s critical we teach our little ones how to care for the outdoors, be aware of the waste we create and its impact on the environment.

Thank you to all the families that helped accomplish our 12th company beach/park clean up!

Join us at the Creek to Bay Cleanup on April 27th. We’ll update this post in early April with which site location you’ll find our team. Our next hosted meetup + beach cleanup will be Saturday, July 20th at Tower 2 in Ocean Beach in San Diego, CA. Join us!
