SUSTAINABLE LIVING

There are many ways in which we can all reduce our carbon footprint. Cathedral volunteers are currently trialling a LOAF (Local, Organic, Animal friendly, FairTrade) shopping delivery service.

Anyone who is part of the Cathedral community, and either lives in Ely, or in a village our volunteers can deliver to, is welcome to get involved. We're working with local traders - Manor Farm, Scotts Farm Shop, Prospects Trust Unwrapped (a social enterprise dedicated to sustainable living) and Traidcraft.

We're not putting the link to our order form in full view, because of our delivery restrictions, so if you'd like to know more, get in touch with us.

Here are some other ways to live more sustainably:

  • avoid processed foods
  • cut down on food waste - buy and cook what you need, use up left-overs
  • cut down on meat and dairy products
  • drive less
  • fly less
  • grow something green in your garden or backyard
  • reduce, reuse, recycle
  • unplug electric and electronic devices when they're not in use
  • use LED lights
  • use public transport more
  • use the LOAF principles - locally produced, organically grown, animal friendly, fairly traded

Every month, we will promote different ways of living more sustainability, often with specific local information, through Twitter and Facebook - sign up to receive them!
