Going green does NOT mean sacrificing quality. In fact, I find the opposite to be true. The things that I purchase as an environmentally conscious consumer have thus far been more enjoyable to use than things that I can run to the nearest box store to buy.
One of my favorite Earth-friendly baby products that I use is our BabyPlanet Solo Deluxe stroller.
Yes, my boy rides around in this pink stroller (actually it is "mocha") but it is too comfy for either of us to care! In fact, my preschooler (also a boy) has asked to ride in it a few times, and he likes it just as much!
- Lightweight aluminum frame
- "Ultra-Compact" fold
- Lumbar support pads and pillow
- Canopy lowers as a sun shade
- "Peek-A-Boo" window in canopy
- Adjustable leg support
- Telescoping, angled "Ergo-Fit" handles
- 2-position adult cup holder
- Removable, opening napper bar
- Children up to 55lbs; 65lbs max weight
This has the smooth ride of one of those big travel systems, but it folds compactly like an umbrella stroller. This has been such a step up from our old Evenflo stroller.
My favorite parent feature is the handles can adjust so that a taller person (like myself) doesn't have to hunch their shoulders down in order to push the stroller. My back loves it!
What makes this stroller environmentally friendly? BabyPlanet makes strollers that are safe and durable, and they also have a recycling program for used BabyPlanet strollers.
Recently, BabyPlanet has released an Endangered Species Line. BabyPlanet donates $5 to the Wildlife Conservation Society for every stroller sold. What an easy way to get a great stroller and support a worthy cause at the same time!
