Promoting Creativity in Local Communities
this is why we're doing it...
- Cottage Industries are great for the environment. Products made by hand from local, sustainable resources play a crucial role in encouraging environmentally friendly behaviour. They reduce the need for factory processing & transportation removing many CO2 emissions from the supply chain. Cottage industries encourage creativity within local communities; many offer courses & workshops where you can learn new skills. By buying these products you can help to keep creative skills alive in the UK for future generations to learn from & enjoy.
