We at Little Green Radials have always used 100% Fairtrade cotton from our very first days of making babygrows and T-Shirts back in 2005.
Buying products made from Fairtrade cotton ensures that our farmers receive a fair and stable price for their cotton giving them and their families security and stability. Through Fairtrade, thousands of cotton farmers have already improved their lives. Cotton co-operatives have become better organised and women are receiving the same treatment as men, from voting rights to equal pay.
The Fairtrade mark means that the cotton in our products has been produced by farmers that meet the Fairtrade social, economic and environmental standards. These standards include protection of workers’ rights and the environment, payment of the Fairtrade Minimum Price and an additional Fairtrade Premium which always has to be invested back in community projects.
Why we use organic cotton?
Organic cotton is a natural fibre which is much softer than conventional cotton. This is because the fibres have not been broken down by harsh chemicals and pesticides. Using organic cotton benefits both cotton producers and the environment by avoiding these harmful chemical. Plus non-organic cotton cotton is a huge source of environmental pollution and uses thousands of chemicals which ends up in the very fabric that we put right next to our skin every day.
When you buy a Little Green Radicals piece you will always be buying an organic product where no harmful chemicals such as chlorine bleach, formaldehyde or dangerous dyes are used. This means our clothes are softer and better for babies and kids particularly those with allergies or eczema. Finally because our cotton has not been broken down with chemicals, our clothing will last much longer and always wash incredibly well.
