Little Green Radicals
Little Green Radicals started life in 2005 with a passion for fair trade and a quirky sense of humour. While doing one of the many cold wet market days selling organic and Fairtrade t-shirts, the founder, Nick, came up with some humorous slogans for kids t-shirts including ‘Stop the Wailing‘ and ‘Wind Farm.’
Not long after our launch Little Green Radicals was in a select group of brands to be first in the UK to get Fairtrade certification for cotton. And, of course, we were and always have been organic too.
Little Green Radicals supplies children's clothing from the finest quality cotton and produced to the highest ethical standards. All products are made with organic, Fairtrade certified cotton which guarantees farmers a minimum price and also gives them a premium which they use for essential medical care and education for children. All the cotton comes from Assisi Garments based in Tamil Nadu in India who pioneered the manufacture of cotton garments using organic cotton in 1994. They are a nonprofit making rehabilitation programme run by Franciscan Sisters where 120 young women who are economically disadvantaged have the opportunity to learn a trade and earn a living.
