Joolz believes that parenting is a superpower (and we agree) so they design and create incredible pushchairs that empower the new generation of parents- that’s you! But, they’ve also made a promise to do better for the world by using sustainable fabrics, offering a 10-year transferable guarantee and have a pledge to plant a tree for every pushchair sold so you can feel good about choosing this brand with a heart for the planet.
One pram one tree
Joolz knows that every child deserves to grow and flourish in a healthy world, which is why they created the one-pushchair, one-tree initiative. So far, they have planted over 88,000 trees in a collective group of birth forests in Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. When you buy one of the Joolz pushchairs, you’ll join thousands of other people who are helping to make the world a greener place, a tree at a time.
Joolz uses old plastic bottles and gives them a new life and this is what they use for their sustainable fabrics. But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean your baby will have to endure a plastic-feeling fabric. The materials used still feel soft and luxurious for your little one.
This forward-thinking brand is committed to reducing plastic pollution by reusing some of the millions of plastic bottles that are thrown away each day. Joolz creates prams that make every step count, using premium quality fabrics that are not only durable, soft and luxurious but good for the planet.

Silver Cross pushchairs
As a nation’s favourite brand, it’s their mission to become more sustainable through their products, packaging and practices- just another reason to choose Silver Cross. Silver Cross are making conscious decisions to help shape and protect the environment for the next generation. So, how are they doing this?
Silver Cross also uses discarded plastic bottles to create its famous fabrics. The Dune, Reef and Wave pushchairs all feature their signature, recycled fabric which comes in a range of stunning colours. Even some of their car seats incorporate this innovative fabric.
What else is Silver Cross doing? Well, their pushchairs are built to last and have historically been passed down through the generations. However, as with all prams, they get a lot of use and need some tender loving care sometimes, which is why this innovative brand has introduced a valet and service scheme to prolong the life of their pushchairs. Alternatively, they have partnered with a charity, Baby Basics, where unwanted pushchairs can be donated.
Silver Cross uses specially designed, recyclable, FCS-certified packaging for their range of travel systems and car seats to reduce waste and have minimal effect on the planet.
This Silver Cross Reef is a travel system which includes a chassis, folding carrycot, car seat and base, vegan leather changing bag, footmuff, car seat adapters, cupholder, phone holder and snack tray.
Suburban, stylish, sustainable – say hello to Reef, the new multi-terrain travel system from Silver Cross.It was inspired by nature, completely made from sustainable outer fabrics that have been woven exclusively with yarn, made from recycled plastic bottles.

Newborn-ready, straight out of the box, Reef has been crafted from materials that look and feel luxurious yet stand up to everyday life.

Joie is another brand committed to producing greener, more eco-friendly products. They do this by using recycled materials without compromising on safety and they create high-quality products that are built to last, which means less waste.
Joie’s new recycled collection features 100% recycled fabrics, made using plastic bottles. Plastic bottles are gathered, turned into tiny chips, melted and spun into yarn and then woven into fabric. However, don’t have the thought of rubbish floating in the ocean when you think of Joie fabrics because they are super soft and delicate for your baby’s skin.
For selected Joie strollers, all the fabric including the canopy, seat covers, basket etc are made using recycled fabrics, with up to 94 bottles used in a single Joie pushchair. Whilst the brand is still pushing to improve its sustainability efforts, they aren’t using recycled materials in the framework of its products yet as it can’t be certain they wouldn’t compromise safety. So, you can rest assured that whilst Joie products use recycled materials, they are still as safe as can be.

Why are big brands using plastic bottles in their fabrics?
As you may have noticed, all of these brands have chosen to use discarded plastic bottles which would otherwise end up creating plastic pollution in their fabrics. But why? It is estimated that 8.8 million tons of plastic rubbish flows into the ocean each year and these brands have seen this as something that can’t be ignored.
By purchasing a pushchair from one of these brands, you are helping to clean up our oceans and make the world a better place for your little one.
So, if you’re a parent looking for an eco-friendly pushchair but still want to enjoy the luxury of purchasing a brand-new stroller that you can rely on and that doesn’t compromise on safety. Have a look at our website and choose from a selection of eco-friendly pushchairs from some of the brands mentioned above, Joie, Silver Cross and Joolz.
