For someone unfamiliar with Greentom, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Greentom is on a mission: developing and producing smart and sustainable products in order to make the planet and the future of our children a greener one. Greentom turns post-consumer plastic waste into beautiful, safe, high-quality products. This way, plastic that would otherwise end up in oceans, rivers, on beaches, and in landfills is now turned into cool, functional products. At the end of their lifecycle, these products can be recycled and re-used.
Suited for every modern parent’s lifestyle, Greentom strollers are not only highly sustainable but also comfortable, light, safe and strong. The frames are made from recycled plastic and the fabric is made from recycled drinking bottles. You can find the number of recycled bottles on the product. Additionally, the Greentom Carrycot mattress is 100% natural: made of wool, flax, and organic cotton. Awarded Red Dot’s ‘best of the best’ design for 2016, Greentom strollers are designed smart, omitting superfluous details without compromising on looks.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Greentom is a young, innovative, Dutch company that designs and develops sustainable, smart and practical products using the design concept “less-is-more.” Founded in 2014 by designer Bart Bost, Greentom has a simple philosophy: green, recyclable design produced in a smart way. Bost has been a coveted contractor to some of the top brands in the industry, and the Greentom line is a testament to his experience and knowledge of consumers’ ultimate needs. Greentom omits superfluous details and components that aren’t really necessary while designing beautiful, sustainable products that fulfill a need today and create a better future for tomorrow. At Greentom, we believe in taking responsibility for the environment and the future of our children; the brand and the products follow suit.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Greentom?
We’re launching the brand in the U.S. this year, so everything is new! We’re excited to announce the Classic, the Reversible and the Carrycot, along with a number of accessories that will pair beautifully and meaningfully with every frame and fabric, available in 10 colors, and always green!
What sets Greentom apart in the stroller marketplace?
We offer the greenest stroller on planet earth, and we’ve designed it in a smart way, giving parents exactly what they need and children the future they deserve. In addition to all of the great features and benefits that come standard, parents have the option to change the fabric set to suit their style at any given time. The Greentom stroller has the longest product lifespan on the market, growing with you and your little one from birth to 4½ years.
What can parents expect from Greentom at the Chicago Baby Show?
We’re excited to welcome new and established parents to the booth, where it is our goal to show them how meaningful smart, sustainable design can be. We know there are a lot of options on the market, and the decision is a big one, but we have a wealth of experience in the category and want to encourage parents about the decision they’re making. With Greentom, you’re not only purchasing a product that meets your present needs, but you’re investing in the future of your little one as well. We have incredibly designed products that are highly competitive and we look forward to showing parents how, together, we can create a green tomorrow.
We’re also looking to recruit Greentribe members, so if you’re a parent, or expecting, and identify with the brand and want to use your voice to spread the word, we want to learn more about you!
