Robuust zero waste shop

Loudcloud visited Robuust, the first packaging free store in Belgium. Robuust tackles the problem of waste at the root by taking packaging out of the production process. This allows them to save natural resources, decrease the amount of CO2 produced, decrease the amount of leftovers and overall waste bags. Moreover, as locally produced goods are always their first choice, it stimulates local economy. Being the first store in Belgium with this concept, Robuust wants to actively show clients how a sustainable lifestyle can be fun, time-saving, cost-effective and generally refreshing.

reWrap is a young Dutch brand dedicated to creating stylish products that do not harm the environment. I admire brands that work this way, I know this is not an easy path…so when I saw the new reWrap product, a bag entirely made out of materials from trees, I just had to write a blog about it!
