Baby elan daily monthly bumbleride indie all terrain jogging stroller reviews

Morning all! Welcome to our first edition of our year long “ride” with the Bumbleride Indie Stroller! Our newest journey in the world of babies and strollers, we’re thrilled to be able to take you on our adventures month after month. For September, we just wanted to introduce you to the brand, if you’re not familiar, and provide some key points on why we LOVE Bumbleride thanks to all it has to offer!

First and foremost, compare the designs offered at Bumbleride to choose a stroller that fits your family, your needs, your style. We only have one child in a stroller right now so the Indie was the perfect fit. The stroller we had before this had a stationary front tire, which initially I thought I would like so much more. Come to find out, I needed the option to lock in the stationary front tire, or allow it to swivel. This provides for easy transition from jogging on the county Greenway to a quick trip in the mall. I needed something for ALL terrains, ALL environments, yet something more compact than what I had and of course portable and lightweight. As you scroll down the check list on the “Bumbleride Stroller Model Comparison“, you’ll see the Indie offers everything you could want, and so much more!

For those of you with infants and an infant car seat, the included universal car seat adapter bar is compatible with:

– Graco SnugRide Classic Connect
– Graco SnugRide Classic Connect 32
– Graco SnugRide Classic Connect 35
– Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SP 30/30
– Chicco Keyfit 30
– Combi Shuttle
– Baby Trend Flex Loc
– Britax Chaperone

Is it too much to ask for a cup holder that comes standard??? I know that sounds silly, but there are several brands on the market, BIG HIGH END PRICEY BRANDS, that don’t offer a cup holder standard and that bothers me to no end!  The Bumbleride has a cup holder! I think that sold me right there!

Hey, for those of you bloggers or reps heading to the ABC Show in a few weeks {without us *sigh*}, here’s a recent press release from Bumbleride announcing their newest GREEN to be envied:

Bumbleride® Rolls Out “Green” Fleet of Strollers at ABC Expo
Eco-Conscious Stroller Fabrics Made from Recycled, Sustainable Materials

SAN DIEGO, CA (September 9, 2013) – Bumbleride, manufacturer of premium strollers for active, sophisticated families, shows off its line of eco-conscious strollers at the ABC Kids Expo held October 15 -18, 2013, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bright, elegant and durable, the line of baby strollers and accessories helps protect the planet and families due to its unique blend of recycled plastics and bamboo-derived rayon fabrics.

The “green” redesign for the 2013 line & beyond—available in vibrant hues like Cayenne Red, Aquamarine, and Green Papyrus—boasts a dual-faceted eco-construction: the exterior fabric is made with 50% recycled PET from plastic bottles, and the interior fabric consists of 50% renewable bamboo charcoal.
“In 2013, we set a goal to make our products cleaner for families and better for the environment,” says Marketing Coordinator Ryan Willson. “We started by shifting the way our polyester fabrics are made,” he says, noting that polyester provides a durable and vibrant base, while the green “ingredients” contribute to an overall lower eco-profile.

Pushing Out Landfill Waste with Recycled PET

Bumbleride’s exterior fabric (shown in Papyrus Green above) is made in part from recycled PET (or polyethylene terephthalate), a polyester that’s commonly used in plastic packaging such as water bottles. Willson explains that instead of using polyesters made from newly constructed synthetic fibers, Bumbleride’s exterior fabric puts existing synthetic resources to use, thus conserving material and reducing plastic waste. Their unique PET/polyester blend employs the sterilized plastic from 14 water bottles to produce one set of Bumbleride Indie stroller fabric. This means that for roughly every 343 Indie strollers produced, Bumbleride conserves one cubic yard of landfill space.

Strolling Sustainably with Bamboo Charcoal Eco-Fabric

For the interior stroller fabric, Bumbleride chose a soft material that is comfortable and healthy for kids while environmentally clean and responsible, Willson explains. The unique bamboo charcoal blend harnesses the innate properties of bamboo grass (a renewable resource that naturally grows fast without the need for fertilizers, nutrients or pesticides) to provide soft, durable, moisture-wicking, temperature-regulating and antibacterial qualities to the seat and interior of the stroller. To manufacture the eco-fabric blend, Willson says that the raw grass fibers are broken down into tiny nano-particles, which are then infused into polyester fabric. Unlike typical bamboo fabric, which is chemically manufactured, Bumbleride’s formulation is constructed from burnt raw plant matter.

Bumbleride’s 2013 fabrics and fresh palette of colors will be available for viewing and handling at BOOTH #6009 at the ABC Kids Expo.
