I’ve tried to be a pretty eco-savvy mom. But with three kids and all the gear that goes along with a posse that size? Yeah. Many times I’ve struggled to wrap my brain around how we could have wound up with so much stuff … and where it might end up years down the road. When my kids were teeny babies, there just weren’t many green”options to choose from. But today things are different, in the best way. And CMP fave Bumbleride is making it easier for parents to make choices that are healthier for our kids and better for the planet, too.
The first awesome feature of Bumbleride’s new strollers is that they use eco-friendly fabrics made with 50% recycled PET from plastic bottles and 50% renewable bamboo charcoal. That’s pretty cool. And just because it’s greener fabric doesn’t mean it lacks color: this amazing eco-fabric actually comes in bright shades of pink, aquamarine, red, and more. (I’m partial to the red for the holiday season, I have to say.)
It’s not just the stroller fabric that’s cleaned up, but the accessory fabric, too. And as winter rolls into town, a Bumbleride footmuff and liner would be the perfect accompaniment to keep baby’s toes toasty on long, chilly walks. Plus, what a fun way to add a pop of color to dreary winter days.
For particularly snowy and rainy climates, I’ve saved my favorite for last: the Non-PVC Rain Cover. That “non-PVC” part is what I love. So many of these clear stroller covers are still made from PVC, a material that’d just plain bad for everyone, especially babies. So I love that with the Bumbleride covers babies get protection from the elements without having to breathe in any icky, plastic-y fumes.
