Be the Change Events are working together with Keighley Big Local Partnership and jumble sale organiser Rana Begum to bring the all things eco-friendly to Marley Sports Centre on Saturday 30th November, 12-3pm.
Eco-Jumble came about because we wanted to bring affordable and accessible sustainable living ideas and products to the people of Keighley. We all know how important living green is but for some of us it’s just not affordable or practical to live this way. We are bringing together eco products, services and activities in one place to help residents identify where they can make changes regardless of income and encouraging people to sell their own unwanted items as part of the ‘jumble’ to help reduce waste. Read on to find out about just some of our guests!
Richard and Bob of Worth Cooperating will be demonstrating the power of member bulk buying through fairmondo to make the ethical everyday. Thelma of Zero Waste Shop UK, an online market selling sustainable household products and gifts will be bringing a selection of her stock to sell. We are also looking forward to seeing Roots and Shoots Healthstore and Cafe, based on Cavendish Street at the event. Javid will be bringing along refill household products (bring your own bottles) and talking to us about the Terracyle scheme he runs from the shop.
Have you heard of Morsbags? Jill and Julie will show you how easy it is to make these funky zero waste shopping bags which help reduce the need for plastic bags. Speaking of plastic. We also have Plastic Free Communities coming along to share the work they are doing in Keighley, Riddlesden, Bingley and East Morton. They will also be looking for people who can spare some time to help carry on their fantastic work!
Dawn Barrett of Move 95, whose aim is to give everyone whatever their financial circumstance or physical ability access to cycling for sport, travel or recreation will be running a Bike Doctor workshop where you can get a free bike health check and receive advice.
Get Out More CIC run outdoor programmes for groups, schools, families and business and will be running a fun food art workshop that everyone can get involved in!
