A while ago our friend Kirstin of Trying to be Greener went on a manhunt to find a PVC Free Rain Cover for baby strollers. From what she went through it seems that was no easy feat. I have never used a rain cover myself… I always thought they looked like a bad idea and if you know anything about PVC (a plastic which contains a bevy of volatile organic compounds and phthalates) it’s not something you want to encase your infant in. (Read more about the dangers of PVC.)
Anyway, Kirstin searched high and low and finally, after 4 days of digging and searching found a PVC-free, chlorine-free, and phthalate-free rain cover from Orbit Baby. Orbit Baby makes the covers for their strollers but Kirstin, the wonderful woman she is, went to Babies R Us and tested it on every stroller in the store. I love her for that!
Head over to Trying to be Greener and see what she found out about the covers fit. She’s posted a nice list of strollers the cover did and did not fit on along with some photos of the cover fit over her own stroller. Thanks Kirstin!
