8x Sustainable Shops & Initiatives
From clothing to organic food, you can find sustainable products in more and more places. That's good news for makers, users, and nature. You can also look for sustainability in vintage or second-hand goods. For this reason, we have compiled a list of sustainable initiatives in Eindhoven.
In a list about sustainable initiatives, Vielgut should definitely be on there. This store on the Nieuwe Emmasingel is a pioneer in selling sustainable fashion. In the store, you will find only authentic brands that have an eye for the world. For clothing, shoes, and accessories from brands such as Rains, Nudie Jeans, Freitag, and Kings of Indigo, you know where to go!
CoffeeLab at Strijp-S is a sustainable mini supermarket and coffee shop in one. You can go there for a healthy bite, such as vegan sandwiches, salads, and a snack platter. Everything on the menu is also available for takeaway. In the bio supermercado itself, you can shop for the best cookbooks and delicious products with a good story!
Duurzame Weekmarkt (Sustainable Weekly Market)
Another initiative that will make you happy: the Sustainable Weekly Market on Wilhelminaplein. It may be a small market, but it's big on action. The products on offer are always of organic quality, 100% fresh, and, if possible, from their own production. It is the perfect opportunity to score your daily groceries such as bread, fruit and vegetables, and special delicacies.
In the colorful Woensel-West, about 10 minutes from the city center, you'll find a vintage empire called YATVA. We're not exaggerating when we say that you'll find mountains of vintage clothing here. Yetunde, who is British by origin, buys her clothes in London, so you are always guaranteed to find unique pieces. This way, you can easily score a new outfit and be responsible for doing so.
Liek is not your everyday supermarket. You may have heard that before, but it's actually true. We'll explain. This fresh market meets supermarket puts the importance of good, healthy and above all sustainable food first. To this end, they work together with local parties, providing the shortest route to your plate. Browse for fresh products yourself or be surprised by breakfast, lunch, or dinner from the test kitchen.
Due to the coronavirus COVID-19, we will inspire you as much as possible with background stories and tips of things that you can do to experience Eindhoven in a safe way. More information on the measures in Eindhoven and the Netherlands can be found here.
