Greentom is an eco-stroller and is designed for the future in every possible way! It is produced to be 100% sustainable and is also beautiful to look at and we were lucky enough to be sent one to review.
Sebastian is now 2 and going through the stage where he wants to walk everywhere, however his little legs do get tired and we still rely on a buggy for full days out.
Unlike most buggy’s it arrived already assembled, apart from attaching the hood and front bumper bar which took me seconds to pop into place. The thing that struck me first was just how light the unit was, although I did struggle to unfold it at first.
Like any buggy after a couple of folds and unfolds I was off and running and we headed off to the beach for our first test of Sebby’s new wheels.
The seat is lovely and roomy and perfect for a toddler – in fact it is suitable for children up to the age of 5 and I put this to the test by popping Eliza in there. If you had a tall 5-year-old you would have to remove the hood, although it is more than high enough to give Sebastian head room.
The stroller is easy to manoeuvre and lovely and light to push, even up the zig zag from the beach to the cliff top. The storage basket holds 10 litres which equates to a small amount of shopping, or a medium size handbag and it folds flat for storage.
The real selling point of the stroller though is its green credentials. The frame of the Greentom Upp Classic is made of recycled plastic and local bio-plastic and the colourful fabrics are made of recycled PET bottles. The frame comes in a choice of three colours, grey, black and white and there are ten fabric colours to choose from, both of which are easy to clean. It is surprisingly comfortable to push although doesn’t have an adjustable handle which may be worth considering if it is a feature you like.
As well as the 100% green frame, Greentom also uses EcopaXX, made from Castro beans, for components such as the buckle of the safety harness and you can also purchase chemical free stroller raincover for an extra £24.99. The raincover comes in a small bag that can be attached to the frame and used whenever it starts to rain just zip open the bag and the cover folds over the Greentom Upp in a matter of seconds.
Wherever you take your petit passengers, they just might remember their precious first years as being lightweight, carefree and green.
