Perhaps you are already convinced to make your shopping a bit more local? After all, the environmental benefits are huge, and it’s so good for local communities and jobs. And it’s not just for food – there are thousands of local UK brands – many that you won’t have heard of as they don’t have a huge marketing budget!
Local can mean 10 miles away, or it could mean from anywhere local in the UK!
The YouK webapp has a unique feature – see all local brands nationally, zoom in on any area, filter what’s there and click through to any brand or product that takes your fancy.
Here is just a tiny sample of what you might find on YouK:
Corrymoor Mohair nurtures a herd of organic angora goats and merino sheep in the wild beauty of East Devon, weave the fibres, and knit socks to original designs. The result? Durable and comfortable socks you can tell people about.
