All that PVC in the raincover traps the carcinogenic off-gassing from the flame-retardant nylon fabric. But then cotton cultivation accounts for a third of all the world's pesticide use. Besides a hemp sling, where's an environmentally conscious parent to turn for a stroller that won't poison your newborn? OK, technically there aren't waves of newborns being choked by their Chiccos, but still. Even if the IQ point that gets shaved off doesn't keep your green baby out of Harvard in '25, with all this plastic and petroleum-based stroller manufacturing, the rising oceans will have swallowed Cambridge whole by then anyway.
So I'll ask again--or actually, I'll just point to Treehugger, where they already asked--are there baby gear options out there that don't involve toxic or environmentally unsustainable manufacturing and materials? And if so, how do you find them?
