It all began in 2003 when Mark and Paul met at Aston University, Birmingham. They had no idea at that time that their friendship would provide the foundation for what The Little Green Sheep is today.
Mark and Paul’s different career choices in the years that followed university helped write the script for the journey ahead. Their combined product and marketing background, as well as experience in organic foods would later influence and help create something new and exciting! The moment of serendipity came from an article about the surprise use of chemicals in baby mattresses. Both were instantly inspired to find an alternative, and so the process began to design and manufacture a baby mattress that combined the best quality support, made in the most natural possible way. The first certified organic mattress, made without the use of chemical fire retardant sprays, was launched in 2007....and The Little Green Sheep was born!
