Local sourcing and repairs directory
Two very effective ways to reduce Walthamstow’s carbon footprint and strengthen our local economy are by:
- Using local independent shops instead of large supermarket chains & national retail outlets (see “Plugging the leaks”, below), and
- repairing items which break instead of replacing them.
Which is why we have started to develop a directory of local businesses: Local Suppliers v04
It is work in progress, and we’d be delighted to receive suggestions for additions.
