This is our 0 year: where we begin, learn and reorganize.
After some intense months to launch and work for Christmas, 2018 arrived with one sure thing: we want to get closer to people. This was the happy conclusion after the success offline.
Each time more our society is informed, curious and committed: action is needed and the sustainable choices are closer. To be able to talk about this face to face is the reason why we are jumping off the digital mode!
We started up North with a Pop Up Store at Velo Culture, in rainy Porto and we couldn’t have felt more at home!
With the sun coming out, it’s time to reduce layers, get out to the terraces and reactivate those afternoons with friends. This is also the season when the markets and fairs begin and a lovely excuse to come and meet you!
Take a look in the summary we prepare to wrap up our presence in some cool locations.
NOS PRIMAVERA SOUND
from June 7th to June 9th – Parque da Cidade, Porto
The first festival where we decided to participate was certaintly a great bet. Nos Primavera Sound’s organisation focuses on introducing new and conscious waste reduction options (which you can barely see on the floor since there are recycling bins in every corner and all beverage cups are reusable) and also in the dissemination of projects that make the difference, such as us, Bam Boo (our stand neighbors), Vintage for a Cause , or also this nice project to reintroduce into fashion the vests used by Médicos do Mundo when in mission.
A TVI, national broadcaster TV tell us everything (only available in Portuguese, sorry!)
About 100k visitors where in Parque da Cidade during the three days, and some, many actually stopped to listen to ours and to the history of our brands. Thank you all!
Mini-Mi no Grilo
May 5th – Rua do Grilo 110, Lisboa
Mini-Mi at Grilo gathered a group of brands focused on fashion and accessories but decoration and design was also present in this market that is only on its second edition.
The space unique and full of authenticity reflects the attention to detail that the organisation added to the event. It’s quite interesting to watch this video to see exactly what we are talking about.
21 e 22 de Abril – Centro Comercial Alegro, Alfragide
‘Mercadinho Sustentável’ was promoted by a Shopping Mall called Alegro. Although eventually unexpected, Alegro is one of the Shopping Centers in Portugal extremely committed to sustainability issues and, among other initiatives, decided to bring together in the same space brands dedicated to finding solutions for a greener and responsible future.
These initiatives are quite important to democratize and desmistify sustainability and, of course, give even more visibility to the many good projects that are part of the Portuguese sustainable eco-system.
21 e 22 de Abril – Mercado Santa Clara, Lisboa
FEIRA FEITA is a market that wants to bring together the local creative community and offer visitors the possibility to buy unique pieces of art, crafts and illustration, but also to discover several studios and workshops in the city of Lisbon where they can create their own pieces. And guess what? It was a great success! The rainy Saturday and sunny Sunday showed the best of Lisbon in local production, design and lifestyle.
In charge was the Lisbon City Council, Clube de Criativos de Portugal and Fica, which already promised that will repeat the concept soon, very soon. Stay tuned!
The summer has not even started and we will continue to go outside and take with us the best produced, nationally and internationally, in regards to ethical and sustainable products.
More dates, products and new brands here and here!
See you soon!out0there
