MammaCangura is manufacturing two child bicycle carriers made from Cereplast
Biopropylene 101: FRECCIA ECO, a front-mounted child bicycle carrier, and MR
FOX ECO, a rear-mounted child bicycle carrier. Initially, both carriers will
be available for retail sale and purchase by MammaCangura North America at
brick and mortar retailers in Canada, and online at
http://www.mammacangura-na.com/index.html.

FRECCIA ECO

Made from a non-toxic bioplastic frame, FRECCIA ECO is lightweight, solid and
washable, featuring big-feet-shaped footrests, a secure handlebar for the
child to play with, wide ventilation slots on the back and shoulders, a soft,
removable and washable seat pad, a three-point length-adjustable harness,
wider and safer legs/feet side protection to avoid contact with any parts of
the bike, a child-proof, parent-friendly, one-hand fasten and release safety
buckle with two depth settings, a wide, comfortable seat with high sideboards
to increase child support and containment and a one-click, easy-on/easy-off
protection handle.

MR FOX ECO

Made from a non-toxic bioplastic frame, MR FOX ECO is lightweight, durable and
washable and features an ergonomic backrest with an integrated helmet slot to
ensure maximum support and comfort to the child's back and neck, a
height-length-depth-adjustable five-point harness, higher and safer
sideboards, a soft, removable, washable seat pad, a childproof,
parent-friendly one-hand fasten and release safety buckle with two depth
settings in the seat center, broad footrest settings and four-position, length
adjustable foot straps, a wide, comfortable seat, high sideboards to increase
child support and containment and wider and safer legs/feet side protection to
avoid any contact with wheel spokes.

The MammaCangura FRECCIA ECO and MR FOX ECO are made from Cereplast
Biopropylene 101, which offers a lower carbon footprint when compared to
conventional plastics. A third party lifecycle assessment (LCA) of Cereplast
Biopropylene 101* determined that this grade of bioplastic resin is superior
to all conventional plastics evaluated in terms of overall environmental
impact. The LCA compared Cereplast Biopropylene 101 bioplastic to four
different conventional plastics including Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE),
Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) and
Polypropylene (PP), and provided a rating for each product's cumulative
environmental impact including climate change, ozone layer depletion, and
ecotoxicity.

The reduction in Global Warming Potential for Biopropylene 101 compared to
conventional Polypropylene (PP) is 32%. When you replace 1,000,000 pounds of
conventional PP with Biopropylene 101, the environmental impact reduction is
800,000 pounds of CO[2 ]eq[.], which is equivalent to driving 732,800 miles in
an average passenger vehicle, or driving around the world more than
twenty-nine times. If 0.1% of the global demand for PP was replaced with
Hybrid 101, that's the same as removing 5,100 cars from America's roads or
planting 1,200,000 trees, which would save millions of pounds of carbon
dioxide a year.
