When it comes to buying for your newborn, it’s natural that you only want the best for your baby, but have you also considered how large purchases such as prams and pushchairs can have an impact on the planet?
There’s no planet B, and we want to ensure that our actions are shaping a safe and sustainable future for our children. This isn’t just about reducing meat from our diets, using a metal straw or remembering our reusable shopper bags, it applies to all purchasing decisions, and whilst none of us are perfect, we can all do our bit!
We were delighted (especially our editor Charlotte, who has just had her own bundle of joy!) to discover an eco-friendly pushchair range from Mlle Baby.
Pushchairs generally have a short lifespan, and are made predominantly of plastic – both of which are not ideal for the planet, but the clever folks over at Mlle Baby are creating some serious waves and shaking the industry up with their environmentally friendly approach to pushchairs.
Made entirely of recyclable materials, new mamas don’t need to worry about their pram or pushchair sitting in landfill for years to come! It doesn’t just stop there either, Mlle offers a unique recycling and trade-in programme too. Did you know, in the UK alone, over 1 million pushchairs are sold each year? Just imagine how much plastic that is potentially going to sit in landfill. This is where Mlle, the responsible pushchair company comes in with their three-step process:
Returns/refurbish – Our friends at Mlle offer all customers cash back or money off of their next order when they recycle their pushchair! This allows Mlle to responsibly look after their product, ensuring it never ends up in landfill. They will lovingly refurbish used pushchairs back to an almost new condition, how great is that?
Re-use – Thanks to durable materials, Mlle keep their pushchairs rolling for longer than most! And thanks to a strict 50-point MOT, you can buy a refurbished pushchair in confidence.
Recycle – When the time comes, and a pushchair has reached the end of its life, they are fully dismantled by the Mlle team and split into recyclable parts. You never know what your pushchair might become in its second life, but one thing is for sure – it won’t end up in landfill.
Let’s take a look at the sleek and stylish range of prams & pushchairs available from Mlle…
The Origin is a full-size travel system that’s suitable from birth. Providing a comfortable space for your little one to enjoy, you can also benefit from the easy-to-fold design and reversible seat. This pushchair is also compatible with most car seats too, making life that bit easier! It’s the perfect all-rounder pushchair that eco-conscious parents will love.
The Venture pushchair is ideal for on-the-go mums and dads thanks to its super quick one hand fold. Whilst still retaining all of the comfort of the full-size system, this particular design is a more compact style. Ideal for regular users of public transport, and adventure seekers who regularly pack up the car to head off on long weekends in the countryside.
This mini traveller system is suitable from birth up until toddler years, and is both car and flight friendly. International jetsetters, this one is for you! At only 5.7Kg it’s ideal for travelling, and is cabin friendly too which is a bonus. You can still enjoy a full lie flat seat, multi-position recline, full suspension and one hand easy fold.
The ‘Wander’ is Mlle’s lightest and smallest design! Suitable for newborns and toddlers up to 36 months, this style is ideal if space is limited. Minimalist living is easy with the Wander, and you can still enjoy all of the signature features including the one hand easy fold and lie flat seat.
