About Little Green Radicals
In 2005, Little Green Radicals was founded with the intention of producing visually stunning children's apparel. Nick, the founder, believed that beauty could only be achieved through the right method of production. Consequently, their garments have been organic and certified Fairtrade from the very beginning. Their commitment is to continuously strive to make better garments, while respecting the people who make them and reducing environmental harm. Through Little Green Radicals, they are hoping to ignite an ethical fashion revolution.
Founder Nick began Little Green Radicals in 2005 and chose to utilize only Fairtrade cotton. This means they pay a higher price for the cotton, benefiting farmers, their families, and the surrounding communities. Chetna Organics, situated in Yavatmal, India, is one of the cotton growers they collaborate with, having nearly 36,000 farmers. Organic cotton is used in the production chain, prioritizing worker safety, while minimizing negative environmental impacts caused by intense use of pesticides in cotton production, which can be harmful to farmers and their families.
Fairtrade cotton farmers get paid fairly for their work, affording them more security than conventional farmers. They get an additional premium that is used to better their communities. Co-operatives give small-scale farmers the power to use Fairtrade standards to against exploitative practices, like child labor and synthetic pesticides. Fairtrade even promotes ecological sustainability.
Leaving no trace.... Little Green Radicals is committed to minimizing their environmental footprint. To protect their products, they use 100% compostable bags, which are derived from corn starch free of genetically modified components. Their post and wrapping paper is composed of recycled paper and is also entirely recyclable. Every choice is taken with the utmost consideration for their effect on the environment.
