We have eco markets running monthly in the North & South Lakes. These markets offer a place for our members to sell their sustainable products and for locals and visitors to the area to pick up lots of eco goodies! Each market offers the essential eco products including refills for dried food goods, toiletries and cleaning products. There is also other zero waste products on sale, plants, art, jewellery, books, local homemade food, gifts, homeware and more!
Our first event was a Christmas Eco Pop-Up Market in Ambleside on 7th December.
The idea for our networking events are so that like-minded business owners, that focus their values on helping people and planet, rather than primarily on profit, can move forward together. This is a new path in business and something that is needed in our world today, so getting together in groups, sharing ideas, new concepts, experiences and making connections is really valuable.
There are so many different issues to get around in business today regarding climate change, waste management, fair trade, ethical suppliers and wellbeing of business owners and staff, that it is best to support one another in new ideas and ways forward. We love magical collaborations not competition!
Our first networking event was on 20th Nov 2019 at Lancrigg Hotel in Grasmere. It was a great success over 30 people attended from all over Cumbria and all expressed interest in coming back again! We had a great talk from 17 year old Amy from Another Way and lots of connections made.
