Kelly and Norah from Baby2Baby

As a company we work hard looking for areas to reduce our impact on the environment and reduce waste. Whenever possible, we find alternative solutions for discarding last seasons products or colorways. So, what do we do with these items?

One course of action we take is to donate to hospitals and several non-profit organizations, including one we love to work with Baby2Baby.org. Baby2Baby is an incredible organization that places our products in homes of families in need, providing everything from diapers to gear for children ages 0-12 years old.

“Hi Bumbleride!

Happy New Year! I wanted to say thank you for the 14 bassinets you sent over the break! We are so grateful for the ongoing relationship with Bumbleride and your support of the low-income children we serve means so much! Because of amazing partners like you over the past 5 years we have been able to distribute over 6 million items to over 125,000 low-income children.
Thank you as always for your help!
Best,
Baby2Baby”

How can you help?

You can donate your new or gently used items as well. Look for a donation box in your city or make a cash donation here, http://baby2baby.org/donate/. If you are interested in hosting a donation bin at your business or school for community donations please email volunteer@baby2baby.org. Thank you for any support or donations!

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!

Car Seat Safety:

The Car Seat Lady, http://thecarseatlady.com/– Information. Empowerment. Peace of mind. How to buckle a 5 point safety harness on an infant seat, https://www.facebook.com/TheCarSeatLady/videos/10154391995782454/ .

Recommendations:

Make sure to always register your baby products, this is how the company will reach you in the event of a recall.

Sign up for recall alerts from www.cpsc.gov, here. Don’t rely on the company to contact you in the event of recall.

Make sure not to cover your stroller with any blankets or shade due to overheating hazard, http://www.today.com/parents/seeking-stroller-shade-why-covering-blanket-can-be-dangerous-baby-t101059 .

Do not leave your child in an infant seat longer than necessary. Many infant seats include fire retardants which can harm your child, http://www.ecocenter.org/healthy-stuff/reports/childrens-car-seat-study/report_summary.

Best Stroller

A truly organic stroller doesn’t exist (yet!), but some manufacturers, like Bumbleride, come pretty close. New for 2016 is Speed, their first-ever jogging stroller. As with all Bumbleride rides, this one features feel-good fabrics that keep plastic bottles out of landfills, dyed in bright, vibrant colors via a process that conserves 25 to 40 gallons of water per stroller. Whether you’re training for a 5K or just doing errands around town, the stroller’s three-speed steering lets you run at your own pace.”
