The people of Tower Hamlets have come together and set up a new initiative to live more sustainably and be part of a sharing economy. Join the Sunny Jar team in their first ever co-event to share zero waste tips.

What to expect

Moving from table to table, you will learn eco-friendly tips and tricks for your cleaning cupboard and kitchen:

Say no to plastic bottles and instead upcycle your own glass bottle or jar making it’s own cosy sleeve so you can use it again and again.

Table 2: Soda Shake
Make a shaker out of discarded items and fill with Bicarbonate of Soda, making it quick and easy to clean your bathroom.

Table 3: From Waste to Taste
How to re-use fruit peels to make soothing teas, perfect for chilly winter nights!

About Sunny Jar Eco Hub

Sunny Jar Eco Hub is a local social enterprise which aims to empower the residents of Tower Hamlets by sharing knowledge and tools to live sustainably, making environmentally conscious living accessible and affordable to everyone.

Sunny Jar Eco Hub was conceived by three local residents: Priscilla, Maud and Linda. With the growing problem of plastic in our oceans and streets, we want to encourage others to live more thoughtfully and make a positive contribution to our local area and the environment.

Sunny Jar represents a number of things. ‘Sunny’ because we want to create a bright, happy and optimistic place for people to connect. The ‘Jar’ embodies the concepts of recycling, reusing, crafting and resilience- in contrast to the throwaway lifestyle.

Sunny Jar Mission

• Connect local eco-initiatives, with the aim to be the go-to hub for eco-living topics in the community.

• Hold sustainable living workshops and education sessions throughout the borough, encouraging the sharing of skills and social connections, as well as promoting
environmental issues and how to save money through low-impact living.

• Develop a bulk buying group for local residents, making dry whole foods and ethical cleaning products more accessible and affordable with less plastic packaging.

• Start a “Library of Things”, allowing local residents to borrow rarely used items and promote a sharing economy with greater community connections.


Sunny Jar Eco Hub need to rally as many people as they can to join their new venture that could change how we all think and live. If you’d like to find out more, follow them on Facebook and Instagram for regular updates.
