At Shared Interest we are definitely of the ‘share and share alike’ mentality (guess we’d have problems with our name otherwise!) which is a fundamental part of fair trade. Sharing skills and resources is vital to the businesses we lend to in the developing world but perhaps it is almost as important here; plus it is always a bonus to work with people and likeminded businesses that just get what you’re about and whose ideas float your boat.
That’s why we’re green with ethics and excitement – instead of envy – in working in partnership with www.daisygreenmagazine.co.uk on a string of North East events up until the end of the year. And when one of them includes the ULTIMATE summer clothes swap at Newcastle’s As You Like It on Thursday 25th June, I reckon it’ll be a case of wardrobes at the ready, elbows in the air and eyes peeled if you really want to get this one in the bag.
