If you worry about the environmental impact of your mountain of baby gear, you’ll be pleased to learn about the newest stroller with a low carbon footprint. Greentom strollers are 100% green, with sustainable frames and fabric made from recycled drinking bottles. And not only that, they’re sleek and stylish, so you can look good while doing good for the planet. Read on to get all the details.
What It Is
A Dutch-designed stroller constructed so you can buy one frame and swap out the seat as your child grows, from an infant cot to a traditional stroller seat, which means less waste. When you no longer need your stroller, return it to the company and they will reuse or recycle all of its parts.
Make & Models
There are three main stroller styles to choose from.
Greentom Carrycot (birth–6 months) This cozy infant stroller comes with an organic mattress made of cotton, flax and wool with a washable cover.
Eco-tastic fact: It’s made from 31 drinking bottles and 16.5 pounds of recycled plastic.
Greentom Reversible (6 months–2.5 years) With 5 different positions—two facing you and three facing out (including a full recline)—the reversible stroller gives your child a variety of ways to explore the world.
Eco-tastic facts: By using it, you recycle 51 drinking bottles and 16.5 pounds of recycled plastic.
Greentom Classic (6 months–4.5 years) This lightweight stroller weighs in at only 15.4 pounds and has 3 seat positions. It stands up when folded for easy storage and is compact enough to fit in most cars.
Eco-tastic facts: Made from 74 drinking bottles and 12.1 pounds of recycled plastic.
The strollers come in 3 frame colors (black, gray and white) and 10 fabric colors, from neutrals to brights like orange, pink and mint.
Good to know: You can also purchase a 2-in-1 model (carrycot & reversible for $629) or a 3-in-1 (carrycot, reversible & classic for $699).
Sold separately, Greentom’s PVC-free raincover ($35-$45) folds away into a bag you can attach to the frame. There’s also a fleece-lined footmuff ($99–made of 46 recycled PET bottles), a shopping bag ($89) that attaches to the frame and a diaper bag ($89). The footmuff and both bags are available in the same 10 fabrics as the stroller.
