IN THE SPOTLIGHT – SUNNY JAR ECO HUB

Linda and Maud, Sunny Hub Eco Hub - climate and food
In this series of blogs we meet some of the amazing partners helping to deliver Just FACT, (Just Food and Climate Transition)  a 5 year project in Tower Hamlets. Here, Joshua, Just FACT Mobiliser, speaks to Linda and Maud, founders of Sunny Jar Eco Hub. 
Sunny Jar Eco Hub, born in East London but working across London, is a social enterprise on a mission to make sustainable and eco-friendly living easy and accessible for all. What began in 2018 as an idea amongst friends quickly became a sold-out event, and eventually a number of flagship projects such as Aberfeldy Food Coop and the Roman Road Borrow-a-bag scheme. 
Sparking conversations about greener, low waste living and inspiring people to take action their workshops focus on craft, upcycling and wellbeing. We met with Linda and Maud the two founders of Sunny Jar to hear more about how it started and what their involvement in Just FACT will look like, check the video out below!   

What is Just FACT 

The Tower Hamlets Just Food and Climate Transition project led by Wen is a collaborative community led programme to create a tried and tested blueprint for a sustainable and socially just urban food system.  
 Although unsustainable food practices are behind some of our biggest problems in society, food also has a huge power to be part of the solution. Food is at the heart of our communities and families; it is an everyday way for us all to engage with tackling climate change, building a healthier society and injecting opportunities and equity back into our neighbourhoods.
