Tula: Leading the Way in Eco-friendly Carrier Choices
At Baby Tula, we’re not just a business looking at the bottom line. We’re about family, connection, doing our part to change the world, and stepping it up in every way imaginable. We’re eco-friendly, education-oriented, and making a difference the Tula way.
We’re family owned, making beautiful ergonomic carriers with the highest quality materials. Each print is selected carefully, each product is handmade lovingly, each carrier is inspected thoroughly, and each email will be answered personally. We believe in going above and beyond in every category.
We are heavily involved in outreach, from our #tulateaches education series promoting safe babywearing to all, to building communities with our #tulabuildscommunities program and donating carriers and raising awareness to support many incredible causes worldwide through time, resources, carriers, and love.
We are especially proud of our commitment to protecting our environment and to awareness of our social and ecological impact. From making and packaging our carriers by hand in our own facilities, to shipping in minimal packaging to reduce carbon footprint, to using reusable wet bags and recycling bins in our offices and cloth diapers in our homes, we are proud to be an Eco-Excellence award winning company who keeps what is really important in the forefront of our minds.
That’s why we’re proud to be the leading baby carrier company to use eco-friendly fibers in our carriers, wraps and ring slings such as Tencel®. Tencel® is a branded lyocell fiber that comes from the pulp of eucalyptus trees. The trees are grown on sustainably run farms certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The eucalyptus wood pulp is dissolved in a non-toxic organic solvent. The solution is extruded through fine holes to produce fiber and the solvent is recycled in a closed-loop process – more than 99% of the solvent is recovered and reused. We ensure that the fabric processing of Tencel® lyocell fiber does not utilize any harmful chemicals (like formaldehyde) sometimes used to finish this type of fabric. The benefits of using Tencel® lyocell include the traceable and sustainable origin of the wood pulp, and the use of non-toxic chemicals and solvents in the fiber processing. In addition, Tencel® lyocell is a high-tenacity cellulosic fiber, which gives high strength properties to the fabric.
Tula cares and continually seeks to truly offer an outstanding product for all families…. ergonomic carriers, woven wraps, ring slings, and wrap conversions that keep our future decision-makers close to our hearts, while protecting the home that they will one day inherit. We are proud to make products that can be trusted to be there for you with comfort, safety, and beauty when your family needs us most, whenever that is… and to doing so in a way that honors our eco-friendly values and our tradition of excellence.
