Sustainable Christmas Pop-up Shop

Read more of the January, 2015 Newsletter...

The pop-up shop we ran on Saturday 6th December 2014 was a great success, due in no small part to people like you getting out on the high street.  

Just some of the frivolities included:

  • Much tea and cake from Karma Cans;
  • Advice from local low energy, sustainability groups;
  • Making Christmas decorations and being shown how to knit!
  • We even demonstrated our living table centrepiece.  

Most importantly, we were able to speak to lots of people- showing them just how easy it is to save money, reduce energy, and make their houses more comfortable.  

We were also able to promote the local area in the form of Wanstead Park our local charity and heritage site.  The Friends of Wanstead Park were a great bunch to have around for the day- they probably had the most fun chatting!  

So a big thank you to all who gave their time and effort so generously, particularly East London Radio for letting us use the space.  You really helped show people what they can be doing at home and on their doorstep.  

And thank you to every single person who popped their head in!
