Newell Brands Announces Century™, A New, Sustainable & Stylish Baby Brand for Young Families
A modern-day baby brand, Century™baby gear brings kids, parents and our planet to the forefront, with a goal of recycling over 10 million water bottles in the next three years through the Happy Planet Collection with fabrics made from recycled water bottles
ATLANTA, March 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Newell Brands Inc. (NASDAQ:NWL) today announced the relaunch of its modern-day baby brand, Century™. Century™, the brand behind the first baby carrier, sound activated baby swing and booster car seat, is back and better than ever with a new, reimagined baby gear line tailored to young families. The complete line of baby gear consists of budget-friendly, stylish and sustainable products, and is designed so parents can focus on what matters most – raising their minis and having fun along the way.
Committed to the next century, Century™ developed the Do More Promise™, pledging to Recycle, Reimagine, and Give Back. The brand has brought this promise to life through its signature line, the Happy Planet Collection. Through their carefully selected fiber manufacturer, single-use, post-consumer plastic water bottles are broken down into tiny chips and then pressed into soft, woven fibers, which are used to create select fabrics for the Happy Planet Collection of gear. Another way Century™ has committed to being planet positive is through their partnership with international recycling leader, TerraCycle®, which allows parents to easily recycle their Century products when they expire or their child outgrows it.
"At Century™, we're focused on celebrating the everyday ups and downs of raising the next generation of tiny humans, and we do so by focusing on safety, simplicity, sustainability and style," said Laurel Hurd, Segment President, Learning & Development. "With our new affordable and feel-good line of products, parents can do more with what they have to share in the fun of every tiny moment with their family all while strengthening their commitment to the earth and each other."
The Happy Planet Collection will launch in four key categories, including car seats, strollers, high chairs and playards. Century™ also features a stylish design with bold and fun colors including Metro (gray), Splash (blue) and Berry (pink/purple). As it relates to safety, each Century™ car seat undergoes KeepSafe™ Protection testing to meet or exceed safety standards for crash protection. Additionally, all gear goes through rigorous compliance and fit testing to help keep children safe and sound.
Century™ products will be available for purchase online at BuyBuyBaby.com starting on April 1, 2021, and in-store at buybuyBaby retail locations beginning on May 1, 2021. Century™ and its products will be rolling out to more retailers, throughout the year.
