“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.”
Another remarkable She is Beautiful race in Santa Barbara,
CA is in the books! Bumbleride has now sponsored eight consecutive She is
Beautiful races in both Santa Cruz, CA and Santa Barbara, CA and they just keep
getting better. Beautiful clear skies, warm coastal weather and a sold out race
give this event a foundation for fun but the added benefits of great
like-minded sponsors, inspirational speakers and motivational quotes along the
route are the icing on the cake. Race Founder Melissa and her sister Sara,
Chief of Fun, bring so much joy, kindness and empowerment to this race. They
are truly naturals at this and we are honored to continue sponsoring the Baby
Congratulations to Bumbleride Baby Mama Division winners: 10K – Cheri Glimp of Solvang and 5K – Kari Moran of our hometown of San Diego (@grrrlrunner)!
The winners of the 5k and 10k races in the Bumbleride Baby Mama Division walk away with a brand new Bumbleride Speed running stroller. We love seeing all of the mamas out there with their strollers and their little passengers, showing their kids that movement and connection are key to a happy and healthy life.
“Stylishly crafted with eco materials this deluxe model comes with three front wheel settings taking you from walking to jogging to running and with a three-year guarantee, you’ll have peace of mind to pound the pavement. The 12″ front and 16” rear wheels provide rolling resistance for safety and help you to easily conquer obstacles.
The air filled tires can handle bumps and swerve along your route and the included pump ensures a flat will never stop you from getting out and about.
This luxury jogging stroller isn’t cheap, but at just 24 pounds it is a lightweight, quality product you can trust. The all-wheel suspension provides a smooth ride for your baby no matter how hard you run.” -Fiona Tapp, VeryWellFamily.com
“Why it’s our fave: The most versatile stroller on our list, the Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller is one of the few on the market that you can take to out for a run on the beach and then meet up friends at a fancy brunch spot… all while looking super stylish. Comprised of soft, durable fabrics made 100% from recycled polyester—the brand is responsible for keeping more than half a million water bottles out of landfills since 2011—the Speed has the sleek brushed aluminum frame of a city stroller combined with the all-wheel suspension of a jogger. About those wheels! Created for a walk/jog/run lifestyle, the front 12-inch wheel can be locked forward for runs, locked at 30-degrees for a jog, or set to 360-degree swivel when walking about town. We also love the myriad pockets (the cellphone canopy zip is genius), the easy-access foot break and the standing fold. Oh, and that it has a matching bassinet and car seat adapters, making it an option for newborns, too. If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop stroller on day one with baby that functions just as well commuting as it does knocking out a 5k in record time, this is it.
More to know: Those aforementioned fabrics are also Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class I certified to be free from harmful chemicals (including PVC & phthalate).”- Mother.ly
