“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 .
“The Indie can be used from birth all the way up to 50 pounds without any additional attachments. Even if you don’t plan to run with your baby, you’ll appreciate the air-filled tires (a pump is included) and easy maneuverability. The single front wheel can swivel, making tight turns on city sidewalks a breeze, or be locked into position when you’re jogging.
For kids who can’t quit their stroller naps, the back reclines nearly flat and the footrest can pop up, creating a cozy spot on the go. Plus, the top window’s magnetic flap makes it easy to check in quietly. Eco-minded parents will also love that the fabrics are made from recycled plastic, and the company claims that they’ve kept an impressive half a million water bottles out of landfills since 2011.”
“It has been two years since we received our Indie and it is probably my favorite purchase for our family. It is one of the smoothest rides when it comes to any terrain (I’ve tested so many different strollers from friends), quick and easy to fold and put in the car, lightweight, extremely easy maneuverability, and beautiful to look at. The indie has kept up with my husbands long runs, roller skating on a crowded boardwalk, beach walks, walking trails, and city streets. Not to mention countless airports… Not only is the stroller itself wonderful, the company is too. Finding out they were a smaller San Diego based company was quite a nice surprise. The customer service is exceptional (thanks Kandi!!) and always quick to respond. It was only natural for my first purchase for our second baby on the way to be the Indie Twin. … I didn’t mean for this to get so long but I can’t say enough about how awesome the Indie is! It’s worth the cost and pays for itself if you’re planning on using a stroller constantly, no matter what the terrain. Thanks Bumbleride!” – Kim

“One of our favorite things to do when we lived in NYC was go for walks around the neighborhood and shoot film shots. NYC just looks better on film, doesn’t it? We would wake up and get coffee from our favorite coffee shop and then walk around exploring our neighborhood. It is one of my favorite memories from Poppy’s first few months of life. I don’t miss NYC – but I definitely miss the days when Poppy would hangout in the stroller for a good hour or two for a nice stroll =)” – Miss Alissa
