Mindful shopping is on the rise, with more people opting for eco-friendly, sustainable and toxin-free options, especially when shopping for their newborns! Did you know that the average baby stroller materials can contain severely hazardous toxins? Common toxins in baby strollers and products include PVC (polyvinylchloride), PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers), and Polyurethane foam, which often include formaldehydes and benzenes.
These toxins can impact hormonal, reproductive, neurological, and developmental problems, so it’s imperative to shop consciously when buying your baby’s products. Unfortunately, finding eco-friendly, toxin-free and sustainable strollers can be a bit challenging – below are some green options for those expecting!
