Building a brighter future

Building a brighter future

 Imagine the world you want your child growing up in. What does it look like?

At Evenflo, we envision a brighter future. A future that is safe for our kids to play outdoors and thrive in the nature that surrounds them. A future that is driven by positive change. We recognize that small efforts lead to bigger results — one product, one practice and one innovation at a time. Our journey towards sustainability is continuous and ongoing, as we take steps to help future generations live in a cleaner, safer, and more empowering world.

We are building an innovative future.

  • What do plastic bottles have to do with your child’s future? Everything. Help make a greener future! Our Green & Gentle™ gear features soft, eco-friendly fabric free of added chemicals and flame retardants, manufactured using recycled plastic bottles.
    • Every Evenflo® Revolve360™ Extend Rotational All-In-1 Car Seat with Green & Gentle™ = 26 recycled plastic bottles
    • Every Evenflo® Revolve360™ Slim Rotational 2-In-1 Car Seat with Green & Gentle™ = 22 recycled plastic bottles
    • Every Evenflo® Green & Gentle™ Sustainable Crib Mattress = 250 recycled plastic bottles
  • “The Green & Gentle Fabric has been a monumental step towards creating more sustainable practices for our team. Recycled plastic bottles? No added chemicals or flame retardants? Seems like a no-brainer to us! We’re excited to keep innovating and finding new ways to integrate these practices into our future gear.” - Jon Conaway, AVP of Product Innovation

We are building a greener future.

We are aiming to minimize our ecological footprint by actively managing and reducing our resource consumption, waste generation, and greenhouse gas emissions in the creation of our products. We are striving to use renewable energy sources whenever possible and promote the conservation of natural resources.

  • Replacement Parts: ParentLink® is always ready to help, from car seat parts, stroller parts, covers, wheels, and replacement parts for things you might have just misplaced. We’re here to supply you with just the part you need to keep excess materials to a minimum.
  • Fire Retardant (FR) Free: Our Green & Gentle™ Fabric is free of any added chemicals or flame retardants. When it comes to your child’s health, nothing matters more. The FR-free materials used in our Green & Gentle™ car seats are naturally flame resistant while containing no added harmful chemicals, making them safer for your child.
  • UL Greenguard Gold Certification: GREENGUARD Gold certification is a rigorous third-party chemical emissions test that measures the levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that may be present in indoor environments. The GREENGUARD Gold standard was developed with at-risk groups in mind, like children. GREENGUARD Gold certified products have been tested to meet standards for low chemical emissions, contributing to healthier air quality around baby.
  • Quick Clean Cover: Some of our products include a Quick Clean Cover. This cover option is easy to remove, easy to wash and easy to live with. Kids are messy and the ability to easily remove, wash, and replace your car seat cover means you’ll be enjoying our gear for longer without the need for replacement — plus less gear ends up in landfills.

We are building an equitable future.

We are dedicated to promoting social welfare and creating positive impacts in the communities where we operate. We are prioritizing the well-being, health, and safety of our employees and working towards fostering an inclusive and diverse workplace. We are supporting local initiatives and organizations that address social challenges and contribute to community development.

Helping all children travel safely: Evenflo engineers and safety professionals offer insight and experience to offer support for children with disabilities. In collaboration with nationally certified car seat technicians around the country, we evaluate, create and provide services to children and their families to help support their individual transportation needs. From short-term to long-term needs, we are here to help find a solution so all children can travel safely.

  • Just this year, we announced approval for use of the Merritt Manufacturing Chest Clip Guard on a few of our car seats. This product makes it more difficult for a child to unbuckle and escape from their car seat harness.
  • Products like the Revolve360™ Car Seat make it easier for families with a variety of mobility needs to load and unload children into a vehicle safely.
  • Employee-led community impact efforts: As part of giving back, our employees select community-centric projects that help drive efforts important to them, and that make a difference in their local communities.
    • Canton, MA employees sponsored 18 children for the 2023 Wonderfund Program.
    • Piqua, OH employees participated in the 2023 Salvation Army Angel Tree.
    • Canadian employees donated $200 worth of toys to the 2023 Canada Community Outreach.
  • Responsible Hiring & Inclusion: At the center of our organization is our people. Evenflo strives to create a diverse workforce, by using inclusionary practices for hiring, that lessens bias and creates a fair working environment. We do this through training, DEI forums and through ongoing celebration of customs and practices that welcome a workforce made of differences.
  • Sustainable Practices: We are committed to finding ways of lessening our footprint throughout our manufacturing efforts. From making the transition to Kraft paper packaging to installing solar panels to upgrading our forklifts to electric, we hope to continue making improvements in our greener consumption efforts.
    • Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI): Since 2017, Evenflo has been part of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. This initiative aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce waste to landfills and energize operations with clean power. This enables us to better contain and protect our products from damage, cutting down on waste, and supporting efforts that lead to longer term healthier forests and even longer-term mitigation of climate change.
    • SFI Certified Sourcing: Certified sourcing uses raw material from noncontroversial sources in the supply chain, supports logger training, recycled content, certified forests, and small family forest owners. SFI, a non-profit organization, collaborates with our diverse network to help address local and global sustainability challenges. SFI works with the forest sector, brand owners, conservation groups, resource professionals, landowners, educators, local communities, Indigenous Peoples, governments, and universities.

We are proud to be moving towards more sustainable practices as a company and will continue to be transparent along our journey into a brighter, greener, equitable and innovative future.
