Shoppers in Sweden just might.
ReTuna is a shopping mall set up as a partnership with the city of Ekilstuna, an hour west of Stockholm. It opened two years ago and sells only previously owned goods donated by city residents.
Part political statement and part solution to the city’s recycling needs, ReTuna hopes to be an inspiration to other cities and, by extension, a small part of saving the environment. To that end, besides offering reused and reclaimed electronics, clothes, baby needs, and other goods, ReTuna gathers the local community for lectures, seminars, and workshops, all with a focus on sustainable living.
Here’s a link to an English summary from the mall’s website and an upbeat video with subtitles in French (a language I also don’t understand):
So the only question that matters: Would you shop there?
I think you know my answer 🙂
