Red Tricycle is an anti-racist company against the systemic racism toward Black people and all people of color. We stand for justice, equality and humanity, and we support our Black families, co-workers, partners and community. One of the ways to do that directly is by supporting Black-owned businesses, many of which have already been affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Here are just a few of the many wonderful businesses that offer products for kids and families.

It's organic and fair trade, as well as being sugar and dairy free.
