Green Pioneer is a distribution company focused on bringing stylish, ethical products to the European retail market. We sell design-led products for sustainable living:

  • products made from sustainable materials such as bamboo, cork, organic cotton and hemp;
  • products made from recycled and upcycled materials;
  • products designed to reduce waste and encourage reuse.

Green Pioneer is the sole European distributor for most of the brands we represent and we supply retailers in over 20 countries around Europe – from Iceland to Greece! We are based in the middle of beautiful countryside in Wiltshire, UK, and keep stock of all products in our own warehouse.

Woof. I am Lola the Portuguese Pointer. I come to work most days and I help around the office by tidying up any lost food, sleeping and snoring loudly. I love watching the birds out of the window but get annoyed when I can't chase them. My favourite thing is racing around under all the desks over and over again! I would love to hear from any other office dogs, please send me a photo!

We believe fully in the ethical principles behind the brands we represent and are always keen to share their stories with our customers. We regularly exhibit at some of Europe's top trade shows including Ambiente (Frankfurt) and Exclusively Housewares (London). We were also a founder exhibitor at Ecostyle - Europe's first trade fair for verified sustainable consumer goods.

One of our main priorities is delivering excellent customer service. Our background in retail means we have a keen understanding of the retail landscape, and are tuned into consumer demands and trends. As a result we understand what it is that you need from us and will make sure that is what we deliver.
