What guarantees a steady stream of items to recycle?
This shopping mall in Sweden may look pretty normal. But look closely at the items for sale in its fourteen specialist shops. Youll realise theres something quite different about it.
Everything for sale here is second-hand. The mall only sells items that are recycled or ‘upcycled’, meaning unwanted items broken down and reinvented as something new.
Anna Bergstrom, ReTuna Mall Manager
You can come and just do sustainable shopping and Sweden loves it. And the world loves it. Everyone wants to be like us.
The clever thing about this mall in Eskilstuna near Stockholm is its location. Its right next to the citys recycling centre. So a steady stream of cars is already coming to drop off unwanted household items. This produces a regular supply of stock for the shops. When goods arrive, a team sorts everything into categories.
The mall’s shopkeepers can then pick out which things they want to sell or use as material for upcycling. One of the most popular shops in the mall specialises in handmade household ornaments. This is its best-selling item.
Its made from worn-out leather jackets.
In 2018, the mall sold second-hand goods worth $1.3 million, meaning unwanted items found new homes.
