Our commitment to the environment starts the moment you open the box. As a leader in the parenting industry, our most valued customer has only just arrived. We want to make sure that he or she has a happy and healthy planet to fulfill whatever their future might hold. That is why we’ve founded The Maclaren Handprint™. The Maclaren Handprint™ measures the ways we can tread lightly and leave small positive improvements on the world around us. Here’s some of the ways Maclaren is making things better for the next generation…
- 1. Protecting our Forests – Sustainability starts with our packaging. All of the cardboard used is made of 10% recycled materials. Our boxes are FSC Certified (Forest Stewardship Council) which supports improved forest management standards and prevents loss of our natural forest resources.
- 2. Eliminating PVC Plastic — We went the extra mile and in 2012, we removed all PVC plastic from our accessory packages. Since then we have prevented more than 100 tons of waste from filling landfills around the world
- 3. Built to Last – The Maclaren buggy is built to last from its timeless design, durability and performance that exceed global safety standards: “I LOVED my Maclaren! It traveled all over the world with me and provided a smooth safe comfortable ride for all of my children: Johnny, David, and Mary Claire. I imagine I walked well over 10,000 miles pushing this Maclaren during my children’s first 3-5 years of life. I recently spotted the stroller in my garage. The Maclaren is still in good shape! Thank you for making not only a quality product—but, a superior product!"- Most sincerely, Maclaren Mom
- 4. Incentivizing Change — Our recycling programme encourages families to dispose of buggies in the best way possible. As a thank you for doing what’s right for the earth, everyone who participates in our buggy trade-in programme receives a discount on future purchases at Maclarenbaby.com. Customers simply send their Maclaren buggy to either US or UK warehouses and we recycle it for them. To take advantage of our trade-in programme, please contact Maclaren Customer Care.
We hope that by assessing what we do, acting as a good corporate citizen and lessening both our environmental and social impact, that we will inspire both industry and consumer change. Join us in our ongoing effort to make the world better for our future generations. Happy Earth Day!
