Our Little Yellow Blog

Wow, where did the last 8 years go! Little Yellow Bird began as a concept to create a world class sustainably designed uniform. Who could have known where this journey would lead us...

We invite shoppers to donate their clean, pre-loved natural fibre clothing items at a ReLove Recycle Stations during your next grocery shop. 

Now more than ever it's time to double down and stay true to the pursuit of a radically transformed fashion system. As a small team with limited resources Little Yellow Bird simply can’t be everything to everyone. It is with a heavy heart and a lot of consideration that we’ve decided to close the door on our direct to consumer offerings next month... Here's why.
Duck Island are one of our favourite companies to work with! We make all the aprons you’ll see their lovely teams wearing while they serve up your favourite scoop (or scoops, we’re not judging) of delicious Duck Island ice cream...
Every year we flip the bird to Black Friday sales and this year is no different. We’re even closing our office doors on Friday 25th and instead, we will be spending the day together as a team grading and sorting end-of-life textiles waste that would have otherwise gone to landfill.  Here's a brief history of Black Friday, and a bit more about how you can avoid the hype and protect the planet instead.

New Zealand post has been one of our customers where collaboration and partnership feel like better descriptors than customer supplier relationship. We have supplied NZ Post with their black polo for a few years now, so we were excited to work with them on their rebrand.

Our strong belief is that anybody can wear any LYB product and feel good doing so. The same theory applies to colour. We express ourselves through what we wear, and the colours that appeal to us as individuals are as varied as the rainbow.

We’ve worked hard to improve our size range, increase the diversity of those in our marketing material and always working to be an inclusive workplace. As a brand we haven’t always got everything right, we strive for progress over perfection and we still have some way to go.

The vision of a world where everyone has access to shoes is a really positive one. That’s where Toms started. In this blog I discuss what happened to Toms shoes and their business model.
