Post 3 – don’t do it alone
Back in January 2013 I was inspired to test my ability to shop locally by the work of Independent Cambridge directory and the Eat Cambridge food festival who are striving to demonstrate that Cambridge isn’t a Clone Town. Between them they have brought together a great selection of creative and innovative independent businesses from across Cambridge.
A group of Cambridge locals have pledged to shop local for one week starting on Tuesday 2 April. This will mean no supermarkets and no large chains. The Cambridge Shop Local Challenge came about through a discussion on Twitter on comparing how much we use supermarkets, how wish we didn’t and how we often struggle with certain items.
