UPPAbaby, the purveyors of high-end though affordably deluxe baby strollers, offers some elegantly designed vehicles to transport baby around town, all the while remaining actively eco-minded. The Northeast-based company really goes the distance by recycling materials from old and used strollers, donating functional strollers to charity, and operating a warehouse bi-coastally to reduce emissions and gas-guzzling travel by delivery trucks. They even encourage ‘work at home’ opportunities to help decrease emissions from what would have been commuting employees. Look no further if you are hoping to stroll in sustainable style as well as lighten your footprint as a green family on-the-go!
Even though UPPAbaby is currently looking to find ways to manufacture stroller components and accessories in the United States, they are already doing GOOD by developing a nationwide recycling program for used strollers as well as further expanding the use of green fabrics.
Their eco-fabulous G-LiTE is the lightest folding umbrella stroller in the U.S., weighing in at 8.3 lbs! The Vista is the deluxe model, combining the best features of luxury bassinet strollers: a reversible seat/reclinable seat, telescoping handle, one-touch fold, an elevated seat height, four wheel, shock absorbing suspension, and more!
