We source the best natural and sustainable fibres we can find. The cotton we source is exclusively organic and rain-fed, traceable right back to the farms that grew the crop.
About Little Yellow Bird
Rain-fed cotton is better for people and the planet. Instead of using toxic pesticides and fertilisers, our farmers rely on crop rotation, natural fertilisers and cow pee to keep the soil fertile and the pests away.
We don’t just meet the minimum legal requirements, we exceed them, lifting the bar for the entire industry.
We ship as many of our products by sea freight as possible.
It takes around 6 weeks on the water for our products to arrive.
PACKAGING & REMANUFACTURING
By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish and currently 99% of textile products end up in landfill.
We don’t want to see this happen so all our orders are shipped in paper mail bags or cardboard boxes. We also want to make products that last, that can also be sent back to us for remanufacture. We seek to make new products from old, so there is no waste at all. This is something we are working on so stay tuned.
Over 1 billion people still don't have access to clean water, so polluting water to make clothes just doesn't make sense.
We only use non-toxic, AZO free, GOTS certified dyes, and we also ensure the wastewater is filtered and cleaned, which enables it to be used again. 95% of the water used in our drying process is returned back to drinking quality, with the remaining 5% being used in bricks and road materials - a completely closed loop process.
