I Love A Clean San Diego Partnership

April is Earth Month and we are excited to announce our partnership with I Love A Clean San Diego which leads and inspires our local San Diego community to actively conserve and enhance the environment through education, outreach, and local involvement. This year, 1% of Tourmaline Wave purchases will be donated to ILACSD.

Each year, ILACSD removes half a million pounds of debris from San Diego’s neighborhoods, creeks, canyons and coastline! We believe in their mission and have committed to them with volunteer service and donations. Get involved and join their next cleanup, the Creek to Bay Cleanup on Saturday, April 27th from 9am-12pm. At last year’s event, they had over 6,400 volunteers collect over 145,000 lbs. of trash and debris at 116 sites! Find the Bumbleride team at the Sunset Cliffs site cleanup location at 1120 Sunset Cliffs Blvd, San Diego, CA 92107 near the corner of Froude St.

Thank you I Love a Clean San Diego for helping keep our community clean and for inspiring others to take action!

Kelly and Norah from Baby2Baby

As a company we work hard looking for areas to reduce our impact on the environment and reduce waste. Whenever possible, we find alternative solutions for discarding last seasons products or colorways. So, what do we do with these items?

One course of action we take is to donate to hospitals and several non-profit organizations, including one we love to work with Baby2Baby.org. Baby2Baby is an incredible organization that places our products in homes of families in need, providing everything from diapers to gear for children ages 0-12 years old.

“Hi Bumbleride!

Happy New Year! I wanted to say thank you for the 14 bassinets you sent over the break! We are so grateful for the ongoing relationship with Bumbleride and your support of the low-income children we serve means so much! Because of amazing partners like you over the past 5 years we have been able to distribute over 6 million items to over 125,000 low-income children.
Thank you as always for your help!
Best,
Baby2Baby”

Isis Parenting Give Thanks Donation Part 2 Bumbleride

Here’s part two of our Give Thanks series, where more of our participating vendors tell us how they give back to the community. See part one to read more about Room to Grow and our partnership and what some of our other participating vendors are up to.

We’d also like to send a sincere THANK YOU to our vendors participating in our annual Give Thanks Donation Drive to help stock the shelves at Room to Grow giving the children they work with a strong foundation during the critical first three years of development.

At this busy time of year, Room to Grow has made a request for the donation of new and nearly new educational toys appropriate for newborns to age three. Children enrolled in the Room to Grow program receive five educational toys at every visit to guide their developmental growth. Your gift immediately impacts Room to Grow children by giving them opportunities to imagine, learn and play – something that is so often taken for granted, but so greatly appreciated by families who cannot afford to purchase toys. Each of our Boston Area Isis Parenting Centers has a designated drop-off location and we coordinate deliveries of all donated goods to Room to Grow as needed.
bumblerideWhat is your company’s mission?

Bumbleride’s mission is to help make baby mobility fun, simple and intuitive, while reflecting a refined sense of style for active, sophisticated parents.

In what ways does your company give back to the community?

We at Bumbleride feel it’s so important to support the community in which we live and work. We provide strollers to families in need from Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. We also support local fundraising efforts for schools and families in need in San Diego. We love to clean up local beaches with kids in tow and volunteer at the local food bank. We also support Baby2Baby, an organization that supports Los Angeles families in need with essential baby gear and clothing for their children 0-4 years old.

What do you like best about partnering with Isis Parenting?

We love partnering with Isis because they support the community through education, products and support, all under one roof. Isis offers classes on wellness, breastfeeding, safety and even offers sleep support webinars and chats; Isis stands behind its local and global communities. We admire the Isis vision, to be the nation’s most trusted pregnancy and early parenting destination.
