Examples of some labels in our store. Why do we sell certain brands. Story of the designer more important than certificates. Some stories are not very well told (e.g. Stewart + Brown), which made us decide not to sell anymore.
Products + Interior: Recycled and sustainable materials are used for the interior, use of green office supplies, green energy, electric scooter point, menu in tearoom contains organic products. Side products all according to basic principles.
Important to select partners and events who fit with your concept. In this slide some examples, short explanation why we work with these partners and chose for these events.
