Fleurville Bags

Fleurville has just released the Sling Tote in a new design..."Cocoa Stripe". Its a great addition to their amazing line of bags. I love that it is so gender neutral!

Fleurville is a company we are proud to be associated with and here's why....

"At Fleurville we want to help change the way people feel about products for parents. One increasingly important attribute in our products is environmental sensitivity. You already know that we are one of the few PVC-Free companies in the industry and that we are also rolling out Green-LAM™, our cleaner lamination fabric treatment. We have something new, Re-Run™.
Be a minimalist. Take only what you need. These are some of the guiding principles that shaped the development of our new fabric, Re-Run™. As parents, you are aware of how much stuff you must buy to take care of your baby and how short the product's life is. We wanted to develop a fabric that could minimize your impact on the environment and the amount of gear that goes into land fills everywhere. Re-Run™ is made from recycled plastic water bottles. By buying this product you keep bottles from going into landfill. You are using a product again, so it is a re-run.
We wanted to develop a new fabric for people who want products made of a simple nylon-like fabric that had great environmental properties. By purchasing products made with Re-Run™ you are helping to influence the way that companies make decisions about resources while you set an example for your children."

"Green-LAM™ is created with ®Fleurville's very environmentally friendly polyurethane laminate Green-LAM™. Green-LAM™ has superior attributes like moisture–repellency, UV-resistance, and overall durability. Most other bag companies use PVC for this application. We don't. We hope you share our commitment to teaching children responsible stewardship of our environment.
All of our MotherShips, Sling Totes, Lexie Totes, Mod Pods, and Escape Pods use this green fabric technology!!!"

"PVC-free What does this mean to you? It means that any of our products with this mark are guaranteed to be free of polyvinyl chloride, or PVC. PVC is the only major plastic that contains chlorine, so it is unique in the hazards it creates. PVC production fuses vinyl chloride molecules with toxic metals such as lead and cadmium, which are added as plasticizers and stabilizers. Because of the chemical properties of chlorine, the by-products of PVC production tend to be far more toxic, more persistent in the environment, and more likely to build up in the food supply and the bodies of people than otherwise similar chemicals that do not contain chlorine.
Many other bag manufacturers use PVC because it is cheap. We don't."

So on top of all that their bags are amazing looking! Great patterns, great style, and they LAST. I have been trough 2 kids with my Mothership and it still looks fantastic.

Have a great one,
