Have you come across Natural Cumbria yet? It’s an online directory of sustainable businesses in the county.
Emma from CAfS attended their first business network meeting last month, in the appropriately candlelit, wooden-floored surrounds of the Lancrigg Hotel.
Natural Cumbria are very kindly raised funds for CAfS and the environmental charity Another Way at their sustainable Christmas market in Ambleside on 7 December 2019. Amy from Another Way gave a powerful talk on climate emergency and the need to take action.
It was great to meet the fantastic range of businesses there. There were health and wellbeing providers (from yoga to skincare and healing), cafes and hotels, ethical financial investment, authors and creative businesses from all over the county. We made some great new contacts. It was particularly interesting to see that there’s lots of interest in growing food and in low-carbon menus for hotels and cafes.
The directory is a great resource if you’re trying to find products and services that are environmentally friendly, and from suppliers who are actively interested in operating in a more sustainable way. And, if you’re a business who’d like to be listed, do check out their website.
