Best Full-Size Stroller for Eco-Minded Parents Who Love to Jog – What To Expect

Best Full Size Stroller for Eco-Minded Parents Who Love To Jog

Why We Love It

“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.”

10 Best Baby Strollers – WhatToExpect.com – Best Eco Stroller

{Excerpted from WhatToExpect.com} …In those early days, the only thing getting between your newborn and the open road ahead of him is how to get around. You might use an infant car seat or baby carrier to help your little one begin navigating the great big world. But as those first few pounds begin to start coming on, those tiny legs begin to wiggle and kick, and the gear you need for outings begins piling up, a stroller will make transporting your child from home to his next adventure so much simpler. What is the best stroller to buy for your baby? It really depends on your family’s needs. But you can start narrowing in on what will work for you with our top picks, which we chose with input from our What to Expect community moms, who have spent years taking them for a spin and know what models will truly go the distance

Best Eco Stroller – Bumbleride Indie



It’s just a fact. When along comes baby, along comes all of baby’s things — the diapers, bottles, clothes, toys and on and on. For parents trying to keep their family footprint to a minimum, it can be truly a challenge. But the Bumbleride Indie is doing its part to help. The all-terrain favorite among moms and dads is designed with eco-friendly polyester fabric, which is made from recycled water bottles (up to 28 per stroller!). Plus, the company’s textile-dying method seeks to conserve gallons of water in the process. What you gain in feeling great about your purchase, you also don’t lose in the quality. What to Expect community member cmz2015 says, “It’s a fantastic stroller. It’s so easy to maneuver, it’s lightweight and the fabric is fantastic. It’s very well-made, sturdy and durable — and quite aesthetically appealing. I’ve had numerous compliments on it.” She says she also appreciates that, even if you choose not to use the bassinet, the seat lays completely flat, which makes it suitable for newborns (but not for jogging — only do that with your baby once your pediatrician gives you the thumbs-up).

5 Ways Bumbleride Makes Life Easier For The Active Mom – City Girl Gone Mom

“Lets face it, sticking to a work out schedule can be hard for anyone.  Add four kids, two dogs and a bad back to the mix, and it almost feels impossible.  The larger my world has become, the harder it is to exercise.  However, It’s time I find ways to burn some extra calories now that my seven month old is finally giving me a good night’s rest.

Thanks to Brody’s new ride, Indie by Bumbleride, there’s finally some light at the end of my chaotic tunnel.  I kid you not, the all terrain jogger has momma moving mountains… Okay, maybe not mountains, but I am certainly moving.

LIGHTWEIGHT

Bumbleride’s Indie all terrain jogger has set itself apart from the rest with its compact, lightweight frame.  I can honestly say in the nine years that I have pushing strollers, this jogger has to be the lightest.  It feels like I am pushing air, even on the toughest roads.  It has the smoothest push out of all the strollers I have had.  Dad agrees too.  With Southern California being very hilly, this lightweight jogger has been easy on my back.  I feel minimal pressure where it typically hurts the most when climbing those hills.  The 12 inch air-filled tires are just the right size.  And having all-wheel suspension makes this ride the Porsche of all joggers.

MATERIALS MATTER

Even in the midst of a chaotic life, we are no strangers to lessening our carbon footprint on the planet.  We did that by having the first dental practice in San Diego that is certified Green.  I was happy to learn that Bumbleride cares about Mother Earth just like we do.  Their fabrics feature a 100% recycled polyester (rPET recycled post consumer water bottles).  This company is devoted to durability, safety and function, while simultaneously caring about the environment.  As a mom who cares about our planet, I feel great knowing that this is my go-to stroller.  It also gives me another opportunity to chat with my older kids about  why they, too, should care.”

Conclusion

After two weeks with the Indie, I can confidently say that from birth to the toddler years, the Indie is all you need.  I have thoroughly enjoyed this stroller, mainly because we are a very active family, and it was more than compatible with all of our outings. Whether trekking to and from Petco Park, onto the beach, or exercising on rocks and pavement, this is now our go-to stroller.  I like to refer to it as the “perfect Schaffer lifestyle stroller”.  Nine years ago when Jackson was born, we loved the Queen B Pram by Bumbleride.  I am grateful to have had the chance to do this four times now — with my brood and Bumbleride.
