The Very Green Hoodie - production updates

Good things take time.

Thanks for purchasing a Very Green Hoodie. Each one was handmade at Little Yellow Bird's ethical factories in India, and then they are shipped by sea (lowest carbon emissions possible!) which takes at least 35 days. Once the shipment hits Aotearoa it processes through customs, goes to Little Yellow Bird in Wellington for quality checks, then to their printer in Levin, then back to the Green Party Office to be sorted and sent out.

So as you can imagine it's going to take a bit to get your hoodie to you. We really appreciate your patience as we strive to bring our members and supporters the greenest Green Party garment ever, as quick as world events and logistics allow us!

Please check back here regularly for updates.


1 September: Pre-orders have closed! Meanwhile in India, the first completed hoodies are being carefully packed for their low-carbon journey to Aotearoa...

23 September:  The hoodies are now on the ship Green Harmony, departing today from Delhi. Estimated arrival date in Auckland October 20 then onto printing in Levin and dispatching from Wellington.

16 November:  Unfortunately, there have been more delays in the shipping process: the Green Harmony isn’t expected to dock in Auckland until the 22 November. With ports already congested with COVID-19 delays, it could be a while before the hoodies arrive. 

Logistics and world events may be against us, but we’re pulling out all the stops to speed up the process. Little Yellow Bird are going to drop everything to make sure the handling and processing is done as soon as possible once they hit our shores. They’ve even promised to drive the hoodies themselves from Wellington to their printer in Levin, rather than courier, to get everything done faster! From there we’ll endeavour to get your Very Green Hoodie to your doorstep as soon as possible.

We'll update you when they have landed, but meantime you can even watch the ship make it's way to Aotearoa on this live tracker:
