Christmas holidays and Black Friday are just around the corner and it’s usual to think about gifts for the family and, why not, some personal cravings. For this reason, and because we know how difficult it’s to make the right decisions when it comes to shopping, we offer you a list of eco friendly shops and options that will delight while taking care of the environment. Take note and make your own wish list!
Unique decoration and furniture
If you want your home to transmit the passion that you feel for recycling and fair trade products, you can’t miss these stores to decorate with style and responsibility!
In Dr. Unic they create unique objects which give a second life to the most unsuspected materials: they turn old faucets into hangers or oars into lamps with a lot of personality. Imagination rules!
Olokuti is an eco, bio and fair trade store where you will find a large assortment of objects and products of all kinds: home, gifts, relax, accessories, cosmetics, food… In addition, its interior hides one of the most beautiful terraces in Barcelona!
Bags, backpacks and glasses with recycled materials
You can wear the latest trends and be respectful with the environment at the same time. Enjoy original accessories while giving another opportunity to those materials that many people would consider waste.
In Babau, in addition to making their bags with recycled materials (such as PVC or safety belts), they propose a unique solution to find your mobile phone or the keys: a LED light inside the bag!
Sunglasses made from reused skateboards or bamboo? Yes, it’s possible with Bamboozz, the most ecological way to wear your accessories with personality and, in addition, environmental awareness.
Cosmetics and natural treatments
By pampering your body and hair with respectful products that reduce waste you’ll help take care of the planet and your body inside and out!
La tienda de Tanit offers natural cosmetics with a wide range of makeup and hair and body care products that respect your skin and also the environment!
Reducing packaging is a complicated task and requires changing consumer habits. In El safareig you’ll find cleaning and hygiene products in bulk that you can carry to home with your favorite reusable container. That’s a good start!
Bio Pelu and Hammam Hennah are two bio hairdressers that offer hair treatments with ecological and sustainable products, including masks, dyes or hairstyle products. Try them, make a gift or experience their benefits at home!
And if you’re tired of shopping and need a break, you just have to come back to Twentytú Hostel and enjoy a very eco-friendly stay in Barcelona. In this way, you will enjoy all the special features that distinguish us as a sustainable hostel and you can see our commitment to take care of the environment by yourself. This effort has provided us, recently, with the Distintivo de garantía de calidad ambiental de la Generalitat de Catalunya, which recognises those products and services that exceed environmental quality requirements beyond what is established by the current regulations. Such a great honour!
