Spring brings out the eco friendly health warriors in all of us. We’re constantly checking labels to feed our kids an organic and preservative free diet, but what are we doing in terms of their clothing? We often forget that after food, clothing is one of our biggest sources of exposure to chemicals and pesticides. There is an alarming number of different chemicals and pesticides used to grow crops like cotton and manufacture children’s clothing. With that in mind, here are just a few of our favourite eco brands for kids spring fashion!
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 six humorous slogans for kids t-shirts including ‘Stop the Wailing‘ and ‘Wind Farm.’
Not long after their 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, they were and always have been organic too.

Babies come in all shapes and sizes, so Piccalilly products do too. Their clothing is designed in the UK and made not only to the needs of the child, but to those of the parents too. One thing that all little people share is delicate skin, which is why they use only the highest quality organic cotton, free from harmful chemical residue and softer than a babies bum!
Piccalilly was Shortlisted Best Eco Fashion – Junior Design Awards 2014
