our ethics

Green Pioneer sells design-led products for sustainable living. This includes products made from sustainable materials such as bamboo, organic cotton, coconut and jute; products made from recycled materials; and products designed to reduce waste and encourage reuse.

european territory

Green Pioneer is based in the South West region of the UK. We are the sole European distributor for many of the brands we represent and we supply retailers in over 20 countries around Europe. We run our own warehouse and keep stock of all products here in the UK. Delivery costs are competitive and we offer free delivery for larger orders.

how to order

If you think our products could be suitable for your retail business please visit our contact us page, read our new stockist information, and if appropriate complete our New Stockist Enquiry Form. Successful applications will be set up with a trade login so you will be able to see our trade pricing and place orders. Please note: we do not offer a drop shipping service.

trading fairly

We believe in a different way of doing business – trading in a fair way with both our suppliers and with our customers. We offer the same pricing to all retailers, big and small. We pay our suppliers and manufacturers in advance of shipment, and we ask the same from our retailers. Our full terms and conditions can be found here.

new products

Green Pioneer, as our name suggests, is always on the look out for the best new 'green' products on the market. If you represent a brand, or know of one, that is forward thinking, innovative, stylish and has excellent ethical credentials please get in touch through our contact us page.

retail sales

Green Pioneer is a distribution business and sells only to other businesses, not to end consumers. We do separately operate two retail websites which sell direct to consumers – www.asliceofgreen.co.uk and www.greentulip.co.uk.
