Innovation That Matters

Rotating baby stroller with eco-creds

Work & Lifestyle

Eco-stroller-bikes like the Taga, trioBike and Zigo Leader offer green-minded parents an emissions-free way to get their babies—and themselves—from point A to point B. While Orbit Baby‘s Infant System doesn’t offer the pedal-powered functionality, it does feature an innovative rotating stroller plus eco-credentials of another kind. Priced at USD 900, the Orbit Baby Infant System includes infant car seat, base and rotating stroller that work together in modular fashion. The foldable stroller—priced separately at USD 485—features 360 degree rotation that allows the child to face forward, back or even sideways. An exclusive twist-and-lift mechanism permits one-handed folding, while a patent-pending, removable Cargo Pod makes getting to all of baby’s stuff a breeze. The stroller is compatible not just with Orbit Baby’s infant car seat, but also with its bassinet, toddler car seat and toddler stroller seat. Perhaps best of all, Orbit Baby uses micro-fiber upholstery fabric certified by the International Oeko-Tex Association, which limits more than 100 potentially harmful substances and chemicals. Its flame retardants, for example, meet all applicable standards without the use of many of the commonly used—and potentially harmful—chemicals. Its rain shields, similarly, are PVC-free, and its Green Edition footmuffs and car seat upholsteries—coming soon, and made of organic cotton and wool—will feature what the company says is the industry’s first fabric to be naturally flame retardant without any harsh chemicals. Orbit Baby is also working on a product recycling program for when families outgrow its products. California-based Orbit Baby’s products are currently sold in the US, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Turkey and UAE. One to bring to green-minded parents in your neck of the woods….?.
