Transition Cambridge aims to help Cambridge make the transition to ways of life that are more resilient in the face of rising energy prices and a changing climate.
Have you heard about Cambridge's first 100% zero waste shop? A start-up enterprise, Full Circle, is offering a range of household cleaning and personal hygiene products at Cambridge Market from Thursdays to Mondays as well as at many pop-up community events in and around Cambridge and the villages.
Full Circle offers a range of carefully sourced cleaning products for homes and bodies that have impeccable planet friendly credentials, and their future plans include more products, a bigger market stall and an electric vehicle pop-up shop. The business is right in line with the spirit and ethos of the Transition Towns movement.
Full Circle founders, Emma, Johanna and Paul are seeking help from the Transition community. You are warmly invited to contribute to their crowd funder. It runs until Wednesday 17th April, and includes rewards for funders such as discounts and gifts. Even if you can't donate, please visit the page for other ways that you can help the project.
