200201 | New Enterprise Helping Hayle's Plastic Free Status Sharon Joslin


Sharon Joslin has started Eco Makers Markets at venues in West Cornwall including Passmore Edwards Institute. All traders are making products ethically with minimal impact on the environment and avoiding the use of plastics and man-made fibres. The first two Eco Makers Markets in Passmore Edwards in November and Jubilee Pool in Penzance in December were well attended by traders and customers. People commented how nice it was to be part of a community of like-minded individuals. Items being sold included recycled Cashmere accessories, local pottery, reworked clothing, toiletries, lighting and jewellery together with vegan chocolate. There were knitted goods from fleece to completed garment, weaving and much more.

As a result of this success a monthly Farmers/Makers Market started in January in Passmore Edwards Institute under the umbrella of “The Eco Makers Market”. It was well received with more than fifteen stalls at this first event with hopefully more at future ones. They are being held on the second Sunday of every month from 9.30 –12.30. Please note there is also a full day's Eco Makers Market on Sunday 23rd February from 10 –4 with light refreshments.

Sharon is keen to promote alternatives to single use plastic and at least one stall will be offering these with the trader paying a reduced fee. There will also be a collection box for donated non-perishable items for Hayle Food Bank.
Sharon's other business “Thrift Cornwall” (recycled Cashmere accessories) is proud to have “Plastic Free Hayle” Status!
