Our business is situated on the traditional territory of the Anishnabek, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee ( Iroquois), Oneida and Haudenosaunee (St Lawrence Iroquois) peoples. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. We recognize and deeply appreciate their historic connection to this place.
Let me introduce myself. I am Rachelle Hill, owner and founder of Little Green Llama. I am an Occupational Therapist and am also a mother of two young girls. This business is a passion project as a result of finding myself overrun with baby items which were not serving us well. I was finding myself longing for baby items that were actually useful and sustainable but settling for much less due to budgetary constraints. The result: rooms full of plastic stuff.
My background in occupational therapy has equipped me with knowledge in the areas of child development as well as social and occupational justice. I believe that the ability to provide your child with quality items to aid them in their development should not be limited by ones socio-economic status. By investing in quality items that last we are able to meet this need by creating a circular economy. A circular economy created by renting, repairing and recycling items not only makes these items more affordable for use, but it also has the capacity to divert a great deal of waste from landfills. Exciting isn’t it?
Little Green Llama is a small business serving Eastern Ontario. We provide delivery within Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Counties as well as Kingston. The first step we took was conducting research using local parents to gage the actual needs of the community, and what specific items would be useful. We are building this business and appreciate any feedback that you may have about the service as well as suggestions for expanding our inventory.
Thank you for visiting and for your support!
