Welcome to CCF’s blogging page! Here the people of Cambridge can blog about all sorts of aspects of living as ethically, low-carbon and DIY as possible. We hope you find our posts fun and informative, and if you would like to contribute in any way then please email Alana at

Sustainable Food

Up to two tonnes of CO2 is produced in food miles per family per annum. This could be drastically reduced if more people ate local, seasonal foods…and made sure not to waste any of it!

Our food blog began as a way for our food challenge participants to document their journeys into more sustainable eating. It continues to feature these journeys but is growing to include the thoughts, recipes and advice from anyone in the Cambridge area. We are also hoping to put a greater emphasis on local sustainable businesses and producers by having articles and interviews featuring them.

If you would like to be a contributor to the blog, either regularly or as a guest, or if you would like to have your business featured then please email Elaina.

Living Well on Less

Inspired by The Story of Stuff, a group of CCF supporters participated in a year-long ‘no waste’ challenge, during which they learned and shared satisfying ways of reducing their general consumption. Along the way they blogged about their experiences and shared tips they discovered along the way. Although the initial challenge has now ended the group continue to live by the same values.

If you have any tips of your own ‘living with less’ experiences to share with our community then please get in contact with Elaina at the address above.
