Never Refuse to Reuse!

Stockholmers, let’s talk about recycling! For me, as a foreign student coming from Mexico, I got pretty excited about going to IKEA (fyi we don’t have it in Mex) and buy a lot of new and amazing cheap stuff for my new place here in Sweden. Moreover, I thought about getting ready for the snow and buying a lot of brand new winter cloths; even, I thought about the equipment and cloths I’ll be needing for skiing and snowboarding (not a professional at all haha). But how to make this happen with my low-budget kind-of-profile (yes, let’s not forget I’m a student) and my commitment to reduce my negative footprint to the environment? Well, Stockholm and Sweden as a whole have a lot of things to offer us…

What about circular economy? Circular design? Adding value to our products while saving the planet? Well, let me tell you about the second-hand shops this beautiful country has to offer! The World Economic Forum recently talked about one store that open 1.30-ish hours away from Stockholm, in Ekilstuna! Good reason to travel a bit within Sweden, huh? Look the video published on WEF’s FB page down here…

Ok ok, you are tired, extreme low-budget, kinda lazy to go there… Stockholm has tonnes of second-hand shops to offer as well!

What’s warm as the Sun and spicy as a jalapeño? My home country México. My name is Fernando and I came to Sweden to study the master’s programme in Sustainable Technology at KTH. Come, join me to learn and understand the importance of having a sustainable lifestyle, and where else to do this than in Sweden?

    1. Hej Gustav,

      Well if you are familiarized with Filippa K’s prices, you’ll find discounts up to 50% from the original price. Good prices for the brand, but still far away from beyond retro 😀
