The textiles, aluminum and plastics that make up Bumbleride products are carefully chosen for durability, safety and function, but also their environmental impact. Manufacturing can be a dirty business so we seek out suppliers that are innovating to save energy, conserve water and reduce pollution in landfills. Bumbleride fabrics are OEKO-TEX and Bluesign supplier certified and feature a 100% recycled polyester made from recycled post consumer water bottles (rPET, polyethylene terephthalate).
