Greentom likes to use plastic waste to prevent it from ending up in landfills or in our oceans.
To make the frame, recycled plastics are sorted, cleaned and crushed into flakes. These flakes are the raw material for the frame components.
Used plastic drinking bottles are sorted, cleaned and crushed into flakes. These flakes become the yarn that the seat fabric is made of.

The Greentom Carrycot comes with a 100% organic, high-quality mattress made from organic cotton, wool and flax. The triple-layer filling is made from wool sourced from sheep, organically raised in the Northern Netherlands, and from organically grown flax. The cover from organic cotton is breathable, easy to clean and can be washed by hand. Natural materials make this mattress safe, cozy, soft and comfortable. No harmful chemicals are used in its production. Very sustainable!
Each sheep is shorn every spring producing about 5 kg (11 lbs) of high quality wool. The sheep are raised organically (and happy) on land that has never been used for agriculture and thus has been protected from chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides.
Using craftsmanship based on experience and environmental sensibility, the raw fleece is processed without the use of any dyes or bleaches that we can all do without, especially our newborns!
The wool is cleaned using a chemical-free process that produces exceptionally clean wool, while retaining high natural lanolin content. Any process that uses chemicals or produces toxins in the wool is strictly forbidden. Texel wool is 100% natural and biodegradable.
This wool, combined with 15% organic cotton, keeps your baby cool in the summer and warm in the winter. An excellent way to regulate body temperature.
Wool has safety benefits too: it is flame retardant, hypo-allergenic and anti-bacterial. All without using any chemicals or coatings. Very comfortable, safe and sustainable!

QCP is producing Polyethylene (PE) and Polypropylene (PP) compounds from circular polymers (Post-Consumer packaging waste) for typical applications such as Crates & Boxes, Bottles & Cans, Automotive parts and E&E applications. QCP was founded with a clear belief to do things differently in Europe when it comes to plastics. They saw a wonderful opportunity for the 25 million tons of used plastics that is being generated every year, most of which is being landfilled or burned. They want to reduce this pile of waste by reusing it as an alternative to the expensive fossil-based feedstock. By doing so, QCP strongly contributes to the circular economy and improves the environmental footprint by saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions. It also responds to the needs of consumers and brand owners who increasingly call for sustainable products. QCP provides the raw materials for the Greentom frames.
