One Planet, Accrington - Community Film



One Planet community shop in Accrington, along with Huckleberry Films have with some of the local people who supply goods to the shop, have created a film documenting their work, showing the processes behind it. It interviews local people about why they like to choose local produce, and the benefits that shopping local can have.

This project has been commissioned by the One Planet shop, a community benefit co-operative in Accrington which sells a wide range of organic, Fairtrade and local products. One Planet is based on six defining principles: local, ethical, sustainable, Fairtrade, natural wellbeing and innovative.

The shop was set up by volunteers who raised £15,000 in shares from local people. For more information about One Planet please call into the shop: One Planet, 54 Abbey Street, Accrington, BB5 1EE, or visit www.oneplanet.coop
