How We Eco – 1% of April Sales Donated To 5 Gyres

April 2nd, 2017

From our founders

As new parents in 2004, our inspiration to create Bumbleride was our need for a stroller that fit the active lifestyle that we wanted to share with our new baby, Ella.  Although there were many options of baby themed prints on plastic wheeled strollers we saw a real lacking in quality, well-designed strollers with modern styling suited to our outdoor life.  Our journey as a family with 3 kids now has allowed us many adventures and our 3 little test pilots have helped us to continuously improve our products.

Over the years, many things have stayed the same.  We still work with the same family owned factory in Taiwan where we focus on small production runs to ensure the highest quality of materials and craftsmanship.  We also more than ever recognize the need for designs that allow parents to get out and explore as a family, whether it be an urban stroll, a mountain trail or sandy beach.

Some things have changed though.  We live in a consumerism society where products are being manufactured at an unprecedented pace. Our inboxes and feeds are full of promotions and offers to buy.  The eternal quest for what’s new, what’s hot though has consequences, environmentally and socially.

At Bumbleride, we have made it our mission to help reduce our impact on the environment by using high quality materials so you have a stroller that will last for your family and can even be passed on to another family.  We also have sourced materials that are free from harmful chemicals so your baby is safe.  We use recycled materials where possible.  Our fabrics are 100% recycled polyester keeping post-consumer water bottles out of our oceans.  We also are exploring ways to reduce the use of fresh water and reduce pollution with an innovative dye process used exclusively on our black colorways.  We know we can do more and we are focused on continuing to look for new innovations that will help us achieve this goal.

 

We appreciate working with like-minded companies who are working hard to reduce their impact on the environment.  This month we are calling attention to those companies in the series “How We Eco”.  Each week one of our Bumbleride families will highlight brands in the following categories: Gear, Feed, Nursery and Play and share our picks from some of the companies that we admire what they are doing for the environment. To show our commitment to this campaign 1% of all Bumbleride sales during the month of April will be donated to an organization to help educate and reduce plastics in our oceans, the 5 Gyres Institute.

-Matthew and Emily Reichardt

Sonnet James + Bumbleride at New York Fashion Week

October 24th, 2016

bumblerideindietwinfashionweek2016

We were honored that Sonnet James chose our Bumbleride Indie Twin in Silver Black for their New York Fashion Week trip.  The stroller proved to wear multiple hats for them and we love the photos. Check out their amazing trip, playful dresses (new line launches November 8th!) and cute baby Leif.

Follow along on Instagram: @sonnetjames + @remistoneman_photo.

“When we were planning our New York trip, we kind of dropped the ball on getting everything we needed for our sweet baby Leif while working on fabrics, samples, designing, and planning the entire shoot, hair and makeup, hotel stay, and flights for our ever growing team.  So when we panicked that we didn’t have a stroller, we searched for the perfect system that would meet our needs and compliment our brand.  When we came across the Bumbleride Indie Twin, it was exactly what we had in mind!  Even with one baby, we knew we’d need plenty of room for our equipment, dresses, cameras, and LOTS of water bottles.  The customer service was incredible and worked with us to flawlessly get the stroller to us in a serious time crunch.  And even when it was super hot and stuffy, we could open up the flaps for better air flow and more comfort for our littlest team member.  Since we left our hotel in the morning and didn’t get home until dark, our Bumbleride was also his crib, which worked out perfectly since each seat lays back to a completely reclined position.  Maneuvering the streets was smooth and easy and we can honestly say, from experience, that it saved our backs and feet, and since we didn’t have to wear a tower of hats and six layers of coats each just to get around, it also kept us as cool as we could get in Manhattan’s September heat.  Thanks for coming to our rescue, Bumbleride!!”

Camp Collection – Inspiration, Resources & Essentials

September 20th, 2016

Camp Collection

The Camp Collection.

Get outside. Go explore. Be kind to the environment. Spend quality time with those you love. Create new memories outdoors. That’s the vision behind our new Camp Collection. Available at select independent retailers.

 

It’s time for all things fall. To the mountains we go! Whether you’re apple picking, picnicking, hitting the trails, pumpkin picking, camping or consuming all things pumpkin spice, fall inspires us to bundle up, grab a warm drink and your loved ones and head out for an adventure.

 

Our strollers are designed for adventures and built to perform. The Camp Collection takes this look to a new level with the perfect outdoor green, complemented with tan interior, orange accents and an adventure awaits patch. We continue to evolve in our eco-conscious materials. The fabrics we use are recycled polyester (recycled polyethylene terepthalate, rPET) with 28 post-consumer plastic bottles pulled out of the landfill and re-used (52 for Indie Twin). Our strollers are PVC and phthalate free. There are no fire retardants (excluding the UK per law) and no polyurethane foam. The handlebar is TPR and foam free.

 

Our mission, “The Ride of Your Life”, means to get out and do what you love from day one. To know that active lives foster active imaginations. To explore with an awareness of your impact on the world around you.

 

With that in mind, we hope you can find some inspiration to get outside and make some memories with your family!

LA Baby Show Nov. 5th & 6th – Bumbleride Test Drives, Product News & Giveaway – Join Us

August 31st, 2016

jamie thebabyguynyc

{TODAY is the last day for early bird pricing use code EARLYBIRD20}

In honor of the first-ever LA Baby Show coming up on November 5-6, we’re catching up with some of the leaders in the LA maternity and baby community.

Most parents today lead active lifestyles, exercising or jogging with their babies and children. Strollers need to keep up with the families that use them and Bumbleride offers eco-conscious strollers that move on any terrain.

We spoke with Ryan Willson, Marketing Manager at Bumbleride, to learn more.

For someone unfamiliar with Bumbleride, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

Bumbleride makes eco-conscious strollers for families to get out and do what they love, while doing our best to preserve the planet. We offer an all-terrain stroller, Indie, a jogging stroller, Speed and an all-terrain/jogging double stroller named Indie Twin.

What is the background of Bumbleride? When was it started and how has it evolved since then?

Bumbleride was founded in 2004 when co-founders Matt and Emily Reichardt were expecting their first child and were frustrated with the lack of stroller options at the time. They set out to create their own stroller that embraced their active lifestyle and was thoughtfully designed to ensure durability, safety and function. Thanks to a small loan from Matt’s grandparents, they ordered their first shipment from Taiwan. Today the strollers are still manufactured at the same family-run Taiwanese factory and sold in more than 250 stores in the US, and 18 countries including the Poland, Russia, Canada, and Australia.

What are the most popular and/or newest services and products from Bumbleride?

We are just about to start shipping our new 2016 Indie Twin double jogging stroller which has received many improvements thanks to our customers’ feedback. Some of these improvements include: an added front wheel suspension, larger front footwells for older children, a one-step fold, improved backrest adjuster, single auto lock, standing fold without handle damage, 100% recycled RPET fabrics and canopy pop-out extensions. We also just released our first dedicated jogging stroller named Speed. Speed is the only jogging stroller to feature three wheel lock modes including a partial swivel for jogging while maneuvering. Our Indie all terrain stroller line has been around since 2007 and updated many times based on parent feedback. Indie also received all of the improvements Indie Twin received.

What sets Bumbleride apart from other stroller and baby product companies on the market?

At Bumbleride, our aim is to get a little greener with everything we do. The textiles, aluminum and plastics that make up Bumbleride products are carefully chosen for durability, safety and function, but also their environmental impact. We believe a purpose-built product should be functional and intuitive but also make a positive impact on a family’s life and the planet we all share. Manufacturing can be a dirty business so we seek out suppliers that are innovating to save energy, conserve water and reduce pollution in landfills. Materials matter.

What can parents expect to see from Bumbleride at the LA Baby Show?

Parents can expect a friendly Bumbleride staffer to offer test drives and demos of our new Speed jogging stroller ($549), Indie all terrain stroller ($529) and Indie Twin double stroller ($739), all made with eco fabrics featuring recycled plastic bottles, and featuring Oeko-Tex and bluesign fabric certifications. All Bumbleride strollers offer a 3 year warranty, eco fabrics and a one-step, compact fold.
