Quick List of non-toxic strollers:
When I was looking into a non-toxic stroller, there are a couple things to note:
- Any type of fabric coating that indicates waterproof, anti-bacterial, stain resistance, etc is of suspect.
- Look for GOTS certified, Oeko-Tex 100 standard fabrics. Oeko-Tex certified fabrics are required to meet certain limits for chemicals. This does not mean that the chemicals are not present, just in smaller amounts compared to mainstream strollers.
- Unlike car seats, strollers are not required to meet the same flammability requirements, but conventional manufacturers use materials that contain BPA, phthalates and other petroleum materials that are not eco-friendly.
Here’s the Eco Mama List for safer, non-toxic strollers:
- Seat adjusts to face parent or facing forward
- Large under storage basket
- Easy to fold down and stands on its own
- Manufacturer does not use any harmful materials and is free from: flame retardants, Lead, PVC, BPA, Phthalates, Latex and ScotchGuard (stain resistance) in any of their products
Two of my friends have this and LOVE it. It feels like it basically pushes for you!
- Lightweight and portable
- Easily folds down with one hand
- Generous canopy provide extra sun protection
- Also free from flame retardants, AZO dyes, PVC, BPA, latex, Teflon, phthalates and ScotchGuard (stain resistance)
