Save The Planet: One Stroller at a Time

4

Available in vibrant hues like Cayenne Red, Aquamarine, and Green Papyrus, Bumbleride’s 2014 all-terrain, jogging, travel and urban strollers feature 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.

 

“Bumbleride proves that parents don’t need to make sacrifices in personal style, comfort or philosophy when shopping for strollers,” says Marketing Coordinator Ryan Willson. “We work tirelessly and exercise the utmost discernment in selecting fabrics and materials that satisfy modern parents’ concerns—for the planet, for their babies, and for themselves.”

 

 
RECYCLED: 14 Plastic Bottles = 1 Stroller
Bumbleride’s exterior fabric is made in part from recycled PET (or polyethylene terephthalate), a polyester 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, therefore conserving material and reducing plastic waste. Their unique PET/polyester blend employs the sterilized plastic from 14 water bottles to produce the stroller fabric in one Bumbleride Indie stroller, for example.

 

SUSTAINABLE: Chemical-Free Bamboo
For the interior stroller fabric, Bumbleride uses a soft material that is comfortable and healthy for kids while environmentally clean and responsible, Willson explains. The distinctive 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. Unlike the typical chemically-manufactured bamboo fabric, Bumbleride’s eco-fabric blend is made with raw grass fibers that are broken down into tiny nano-particles and then infused into polyester fabric.
