Promoting ethical children's clothes and toys - Little Green Radicals fair trade children's clothes - logo

Little Green Radicals make ethical and beautiful clothing for babies and kids. They were the first, along with a few other companies, to get Fairtrade certification in the UK, back when the company started in 2005. The certification means a promise of decent working conditions throughout the whole supply chain.1 All the clothing (and even ribbons) is organic and certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard, and also carries the Fairtrade logo.2 “High social and ethical standards right through the production chain have made this fabulous clothing brand a worldwide success.”5

Little Green Radicals do everything that they can to ensure that they’re “treading as lightly as possible on the earth”. Ways that they do this include: 

  • they use 100% compostable bags, made from GM-free corn starch, to protect their clothing 
  • their postage bags and wrapping paper is made from recycled paper and is fully recyclable
  • even their gift ribbons, like their clothing, is made from 100% organic cotton.2

They have a massive range of organic fabrics from which they make all their clothes, like recycled polyester (made from recycled bottles!), brushed cotton, sherpa cotton (we love sherpa!), and many more3 – click here to view Little Green Radicals’ own guide to their fabrics. 

Founder, Nick, says his motivations behind using organic materials and cotton include our own health and the health of our children, the health of the farmers growing the cotton, and reducing the consequences on the environment.4 Not only is organic cotton better for us to use, the intensive use of pesticides can be severely damaging to growers and their families.1
