Post 3 – don’t do it alone

Image_Eat Cambridge 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.

To find out who is involved follow the hastag #CamShopLocal on Twitter and pledge to join us by liking the CambShopLocal Facebook page.
