Sustainability is a big theme nowadays. Fortunately, there is more and more choice for sustainable shopping! Also in Amersfoort, there are plenty of nice shops where you can score nice sustainable items. With this 3x sustainable shopping in Amersfoort list, you will find original interior design items, household items and gifts (also for yourself of course ;))
SMIR is a concept store set up by Nicky and Jessie Kroon. Maybe you know them from their blog and book Zero Waste Project, with which they want to show everyone how to live with as little waste as possible. Of course, they also do this in their shop SMIR. They don’t print receipts (you can receive a digital copy), the products have no or responsible packaging and you can only pay with your debit card. At SMIR you will find products such as bamboo toothbrushes, washable cotton pads, stainless steel straws, drinking bottles, and beeswax cloths. In short: all kinds of sustainable alternatives for disposables. Workshops and lectures are regularly held at SMIR that deal with a conscious lifestyle. Check their website for upcoming events.
