Yes Future positive supermarket , that's how they baptized this supermarket. It was born with the intention of fighting for sustainable development in the city of Barcelona. They bet on the power that their clients have to change the world.
A new supermarket for all those who want to live under the philosophy Zero waste . For all those who want to buy without generating so much waste and being able to do everything in one place.
They want to make it easier for the consumer to make a sustainable purchase, in an easy way and in one place .
How did the idea come about?
Thinking about why they could not fill the used containers, but they had to discard them and buy again others?
In addition they went a little further, looking for that all product that they sold were ecological and that the way to buy in the store also was it .
Plastic can be recycled, but it is not the only option. There are many plastics and containers that are not recycled. Therefore, the percentage to which it can really be used again is very small.
The idea is to skip a step earlier and try to generate less waste . It is preferable to reduce that having to recycle afterwards.
All the products with which this store works are ecological . They worry about selling organic farming products, without chemicals or toxic pesticides.
They try that each of them possess ethical values and are sustainable . In addition, they have fair trade certifications whenever possible, which ensures the well-paid work of local farmers.
