The Eco-Flor at ReTuna Galleria
You’re familiar with thrift stores – maybe you shop at one from time to time. But have you ever seen an entire mall of reclaimed goods? Such a thrifter’s paradise exists in Sweden, about 1.5 hours west of central Stockholm. ReTuna Recycling Galleria, peddles reused or upcycled goods, pioneering the climate-friendly future of the shopping mall.
ReTuna Återbruksgalleria is a mall dedicated entirely to repaired and upcycled goods. It combines a traditional municipal recycling centre with a shopping centre, so that people can drop off goods that they no longer need, and then browse for something new – perhaps stopping off at the cafe in between. It’s the first mall of its kind in Sweden, and as far as they know, the first in the world.
