I thought that some of you might like to see behind the scenes at www.lactivist.co.uk - well, this is it. It is one side of my bedroom and a whole lot of Ikea shelves and boxes. The organic t-shirts and hats themselves are made to fair trade standards in Africa, then sent over to me to be hand screenprinted by a family firm in Devon, the boss of which I have known since I was 7. You can see the rows of mugs in their packaging – the blanks are made in Eastern Europe and printed about half a mile away from me – the man who prints them drops them off as he plays badminton at my local sports center.
So when you place your order, I take my laptop up to the bedroom, plug it into the printer (oh how I wish I had a wireless printer!) and pack your order. It gets taken to the local post office just around the corner as soon as it possible can.
The first picture is taken by me standing on my bed, so it is pretty much what I see when I wake up every morning. The second picture is taken as I walk into the bedroom. Luckily my bedroom is the biggest room in my 2 bed Victorian Terrace
As you can see I’m running out of space!
