Dorel Juvenile, a segment of Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B.TO, DII.A.TO) and the world's largest juvenile products manufacturer, has announced the launch of PureCosi™, a new car seat fabric line for Maxi-Cosi that meets flammability standards without the use of added fire-retardant chemicals.
By developing safe children's car seats through intentional fabric choices, and not with added chemicals, Maxi-Cosi's PureCosi™ line will allow parents to protect their babies from toxins while reducing the accumulation of toxic PBDEs and PFAs in the environment.
he launch of PureCosi™ represents one step in the brand's journey towards eco-friendly design. The company's commitment to the development of PureCosi™ has been achieved through changes in not only fabric choices, but also company policies and practices that all third-party manufacturing partners are required to adhere to. In addition, the dyeing processes for the car seat components, including premium materials and plush cushioning that are machine washable and dryer safe, are completed in the most sustainable way possible for a majority of colorways to conserve both energy and water resources.
"As we continue our journey to becoming a more sustainable company, designing a fabric that protects both little ones and the planet was a priority for us," said Paul Powers, President of Dorel Juvenile USA. "Our new PureCosi™ line is thoughtfully designed to be eco-conscious and beneficial for babies in this next generation and the planet they will inhabit. We're excited to see how families incorporate PureCosi™ as a simple sustainable choice."
