Ethics & Sustainability
My handcrafted designs are heirloom quality, intended to be loved for years to come; more importantly they are not "throw away" gifts with a short lifetime which inevitably end up in landfill.
Our clothing and accessories focus on slow fashion; with most items being ethically made and/or from 100% organic cotton. Again, they are intended to be loved for years to come and once they no longer fit customers are likely to cherish them as keepsakes due to their personalised design.
All of our items are currently made to order, reducing energy and waste.
We are committed to reducing waste, we reuse and recycle most of the packaging in which we receive deliveries in, and we keep even the smallest of scraps from our vinyl products to use in other creative projects.
There is of course plenty of room for improvement which we are continuously striving to do. We welcome any suggestions you may have on reducing waste firstname.lastname@example.org
Giving something back to the community is also really important to me and as a company we often donate to various charities throughout the year. During the COVID-19 pandemic I founded a project which I am so proud of called The Cheerful Little Letter Project where we have been matching families with care home residents so they can be sent some happy post to spread some cheer. I have now extended this to include a second project matching children to be pen pals with each other which has been just so lovely.
At Little Things by Lucy happiness, kindness and giving is at the heart of everything we do.
