  • 100% Organic Cotton
  • Fairtrade Pioneers
  • Working Towards Going Plastic Free
Often abbreviated to LGR the company began in 2005. Nick the founder wanted to set up a Fairtrade company. For him what they made was less important than how they made it. In fact, Little Green Radicals was one of the first UK companies to win Fairtrade certification.

After reading about the reality of being a cotton farmer when, for example, the market price drops to a level that means you can’t even cover your costs, I chose cotton. But really I chose Fairtrade.

Nick - Little Green Radicals

Aside from the environment the other inspiration for the companies ethos was family. Like our own emerging brand, in the early days, Nick's own son was the model for their new clothing. And the importance of buying Fairtrade cotton is largely down to wanting to treat the farmers that grow it fairly. Helping them support their families and their local communities. What LGR do and why they do it is a constant inspiration for us at Little Tots Toys. Today Little Green Radicals is a 100% organic Fairtrade cotton children's clothing company. And right now they are trialling plastic free packaging. Which if successful will mean the company can be completely plastic free soon.
