We have a commitment to add value to society. As part of our circular economy philosophy we collect waste from our customers and pass on the benefits to Charities. You can help in other ways too, so please read below to find out more about how we (and you) can make a difference.
Les Petits Riens is a social enterprise that supports marginalised people of Belgium. They sell used clothes in the second-hand shops of the association and the money raised helps to fund projects that aim to fight poverty and social exclusion in Belgium.
The Belgian Federation of the Restos du Coeur have led actions against poverty since 1986. We work hand in hand with the Restos du Coeur of Saint-Gilles which distributes food to poor families every Friday.
Oxfam Solidarity Belgium leads poverty reduction projects in more than 90 countries across the world. We give them toys, books, CD’s and DVD’s which are sold in Oxfam shops to raise funds for Oxfam’s projects.
Every year we plant trees to offset or CO2 emissions. We participate in the “plant a forest in a day” initiative by the Jane Goodall Institute. JGI Belgium promotes respect for all living things – Animals, People, and the Environment – both in Belgium and elsewhere in the world.
Disco Soup is an international grass roots movement that aims to raise awareness of food waste. It originated from Slow Food Youth Deutschland, who came up with the concept of “Schnippel Disko”, whereby a team of volunteers prepare otherwise wasted vegetables into soups within a party-like atmosphere. We divert any fruit & vegetables that are heading for our compost bin to disco soup instead.
Serve the City is a global movement of volunteers offering help in practical ways to people in need. They partner with the homeless shelters, refugee centers, orphanages, and other associations in Brussels. We enable customers to donate fruit to Serve the City which is then is distributed to the marginalised people of Brussels.
