The launch of Green Tulip in 2006 fulfilled a long standing dream of having my own shop. It also brought together my personal commitments to trading fairly and respecting the environment with a passion for retail developed over 14 years working for one of the UK’s biggest retailers.
My aim for Green Tulip has always been to offer customers products that are not only stylish and contemporary, but that have also been produced without exploiting people, animals or the environment. All of our products have a story to tell and we love having the opportunity to share these stories with our customers.
Each product on the site has icons indicating which of our six ethical categories it falls into as well as a lot of additional information about the product’s ethics and general information about the brand that produces it. Further information on each of the ethical categories we use can be found here.
Where possible we buy from small suppliers where we can work closely with the founders and hear first hand of their commitment to ethical sourcing. We also give our suppliers and customers the guarantee that Green Tulip will be an ethical business to deal with - paying on time and not working to inflated profit margins.
Now you know a bit more about the principles behind Green Tulip I hope you enjoy looking around our website and feel as inspired as I do about the beautiful products we sell and their stories.
P.S Do get in touch with any comments or new product ideas – I’d love to hear from you! Just drop me an email or find me on Instagram and Green Tulip on Facebook.
