Owl Pyjamas by Little Green Radicals

little green radicals owl pyjamas

It’s been a while since we sent Little Green Radicals our love for supplying us with amazingly ethical and organic clothing for children, not to mention how colourful they are!

So for anyone who is not aware, Little Green Radicals sell organic and fairtrade clothing for kids, and was one of the first in the UK to get fairtrade certification for cotton, which come to think of it is an awesome achievement!

Behind the scenes of Little Green Radicals

We would like to turn your attention one product in particular that we absolutely adore (and wish we had some adult ones), which are these cute Owl Pyjamas. These Hoot The Owl Pyjamas come in a top and bottoms set, made from 100% organic cotton and machine washable. These PJs are ideal for 1-2 years and would make a great gift to parents who are eco-conscious and want to aid developing countries prosper. Another amazing discovery if your children happen to be sensitive to certain types of materials, or even have Eczema, the organic cotton can help.

We hope that this has been insightful. For more organic and fairtrade clothing from Little Green Radicals, please visit arteideas.co.uk and use our search.

Extra Large Kiko Frames Are Back In Stock!

Extra Large Kiko Frames

So we have got our hands on some more Extra Large Kiko Frames! We also have them in a selection of sizes from Portrait – 5″ x 7″ (medium) Kiko Frames, and 8″ x 10″ (large) Kiko Frames. These are by far one of the best ethically sourced Eco Gifts that you can go for, especially if you are going for a rustic, vintage aesthetic.

These frames are very versatile, they are designed so that you can place pieces of your memories or nostalgia in any form that you might have, be it photos, pieces of fabric, pressed flowers, anything you can fit and deserves to be displayed and that is personal to you,  your family and your home.  The frame also allows you to present anything you have on both sides on the glass so it is possible to hang these frames freely from your ceiling. We personally like them wall mounted inside of hallways or entryway that have a rustic or industrial feel, we highly recommend these vintage coat racks, which tie in nicely with the character and shabby chic design you might be going for with these glass frames.

Nkuku supply Arte Ideas with these and many other ethically sourced, fair-trade products. Their furniture and homewares have been loved and lived in by many people, we are glad they we have been restocked, so don’t wait for too long, they might get snapped up again! Follow us on Facebook & Twitter for more updates on eco gift offers and updates in stock!

New Year, New You…it’s time to start improving the Human Condition.

Time to start improving the human condition

First off, we hope you’ve had an amazing Christmas and New Year. Everyone at Arte Ideas like to thank everyone who has visited our site, read our articles and been engaging socially…all this helped us greatly make people more aware of eco-friendly gifts that we have available and the amazing people who supply us with these products.

Now that we have that out of the way…let have a chat about what we all can do to further improve ourselves and the human condition. So what is the “human condition” you might be wondering, well it is something that we believe is what we have been doing since the very start of Arte Ideas, which is to drive the progress and the concerns of the human existence, such as poverty. In reflection, over half of the population live on less than £2 a day. There are over 1 billion people living in poverty right now, to put that into perspective they are over 2 billion children on this earth, so every 2nd child would be living in poverty. Sorry if this sounds slightly depressing, but this is the actual fact, but in essence you are already helping the human condition, you might not realise it sometimes, but you are an awesome person. The good things we do such as purchasing something that is eco-friendly, ethical or locally sourced goes towards supporting people who are less fortunate, sort of like a ‘pay it forward’ system. If you’re not aware pay it forward means to pay forward a good deed to others instead to yourself, so sort of an eco-pay-it-forward. The innovations in technology has also greatly benefited our cause by providing us with newer recycling methods, materials capable of cutting carbon emissions and fossil fuels, and the development of ethical working relationships. We are very proud that our suppliers have successfully achieved in providing these things that has had a transformative impact. This impact is then paid forward by you, the eco consumer who are very conscious in all things environmentally friendly, well there you have it, you were improving the human conditional all along! Make sure you impact other people with the ‘eco-pay-it-forware’, it won’t unless it reaches the people who benefit from it…

So here’s to you, keep on improving the human condition, showing compassion and the will to help others and the world will be just that better off.

Pigeon Organics – Featured Fair Trade Gifts

Pigeon Organics - Kids Fairtrade GiftsWe are proud to announce Pigeon Organics clothing and accessories to Arte Ideas. Pigeon Organics use the finest and softest organic cotton that is sourced from fair-trade suppliers, and free from pesticides and artificial fertilisers. They also are based locally and support local partners that make the most of the skills that exist close to home. e.g. from pattern cutters in Leicestershire, to textile designers and printers in Oxford. Although they no longer run in Nottingham (due to not being able to find an alternative manufacturer in the UK), but this change was for the positive, all work is still GOTS compliant and meets to the social and environmental standards. Pigeon Organics ethos remains untarnished and are still committed to producing clothing and accessories to the finest quality.

Wrap your kids up this fall/winter with Pigeon Organics clothing and accessories such as these Plum/Natural Hedgehog Hat & Scarf Set. Please follow Arte Ideas on Facebook & Twitter.
