Local Sourcing

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.
