    The Mini Micro Deluxe Eco is the first of its kind, innovatively designed to be made from up to 50% recycled maritime waste plastic. We take waste from the maritime industry, clean it, crush it, dry it and melt it and pour it to make the Mini Micro Deluxe Eco decks and brakes.

    Nothing else changes, we’ve kept Mini Micro Deluxe that preschoolers know and love including the lean to steer system, adjustable T-bar to grow with them. Only now it’s an even more eco-friendly kid’s toy.

    Quality and longevity have always been at the core of each one of our scooters and the Eco is no different. With a full range of spare parts we ensure that they're built to be upcycled and passed down through the generations to come.

    By reusing this plastic that used to venture the seas to create an everyday adventure for pre-schoolers, we hope we can help do our part to protect the environment now and for their future.

    Our global Micro HQ is donating 1% of the annual worldwide sales from the Micro Eco range to '1% for the Planet', who support important work/charities that benefit our environment. 1% for the Planet is a global organization that exists to ensure our planet and future generations thrive.

    Questions and Answers

    Q: What is an Eco Scooter?

    Our toddlers Mini Micro Deluxe Eco Scooter, is green by design. We have incorporated recycled maritime plastics into the deck and the brake composition of the scooter. In an effort to make our scooters an increasingly eco-friendly product. It’s a roll in the right direction to a further sustainable world. Join the movement today anyway!

    Q: Which scooter models are available as the ECO version?

    The Mini Micro Deluxe Eco is our first step. Fundamental to Micro is the longevity that we build into our scooters; with premium materials and full range of spare parts, Micro scooters are designed to never end up in landfill. So using, recycled plastic is the natural next step. We want to do our part to help reduce the world's plastic pollution crisis and reuse what we can. Making a positive contribution to the cleaning up and a commitment to continuing to protect our planet.

    Q: What is the recycled plastic made from?

    We take waste from the maritime industry, clean it, crush it, dry it and melt it and pour it to make our decks and brakes greener. Specifically, the waste that is discarded and obsolete such as ropes, trawls that have been used all over the world. This is the first exciting step in developing a more sustainable scooter. We recognise the potential of recycled plastics instead of producing new ones.

    Q: Why is only a part of the scooter made from recycled material and not the whole scooter?

    This is just the start. Currently, we have found a solution to making the Mini Micro Deluxe Eco deck and brake out of recycled maritime waste whilst preserving the premium quality of our scooters. The materials used for other parts of the scooter have a different composition, which cannot be replaced with the recycled material… yet. Our commitment to constant innovation means it’s only onwards and upwards from here!

    Q: Does the Mini Micro Deluxe ECO differ in quality due to use of the recycled plastic?

    No, our recycled plastic used for the deck and brake of the Mini Micro Deluxe ECO is as durable as our regular plastic. It has the same strength properties and meets the same safety standards.

    Q: What about the packaging? Is it also sustainable?

    With our ECO products we have taken special care to ensure that the packaging is as environmentally friendly as possible, we use FSC-certified paper for the packaging and have reduced the amount of plastic inside the box to a minimum. The scooter is not in a plastic bag, only the handlebars are wrapped in simple brown paper to protect them from damage. The user manual is also FSC certified and is packed in a plastic bag made of biodegradable material.

    Q: What is 1% for the Planet?

    1% for the Planet is an alliance of businesses that understand the necessity of protecting the natural environment. They understand that profit and loss are directly linked to its health, and are concerned with the social and environmental impacts of industry.

    They make environmental giving easy and effective through partnership advising, impact storytelling and third-party certification. Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, their community members have given more than $265 million to our approved non-profit partners to date. Today, 1% for the Planet’s global network consists of thousands of businesses, individuals and environmental non-profits working toward a better future for all.

    Q: Does my child need to wear a helmet?

    We always recommend that children should wear helmets when scooting. It is important that your child’s helmet fits correctly (see our video tutorial here).

    Q. Is the height of the Mini Micro Deluxe Eco handlebar adjustable?

    Yes! For the first time the Mini Micro Deluxe Eco has an adjustable handlebar height which means younger, smaller children can now enjoy the benefits of scooting. The height of the handlebar can be adjusted from 49-68cm, suitable for a child who is 80 - 110cm in height.

    Q. Does the Mini Micro Deluxe scooter conform to European safety standards?

    As you would expect of a Swiss designed and engineered scooter the Mini Micro Deluxe conforms to European safety standard EN14619.

    Great quality and looks fantastic!

    I bought this scooter for my 2 year old and very happy with my choice. I am very conscious about the environment so I was delighted to find an eco option. The colour is beautiful and the quality is fantastic and feels as good and strong as the classic product.
