Project Description

Why Eco Market?

There has never been a better time to care about the environment as right now; we are starting to realise that change is needed, and feel the desire to learn how to make effective and long lasting positive change. As a direct response to this, the Eco Market wants to help and assist a smooth transition to a more sustainable lifestyle. The way forward in reducing our negative impact on the environment, is to become conscious of our daily habits, particularly what we buy, and what we throw away.

Our purpose is to inspire and facilitate an easy and joyful shift towards an environmentally-friendly way of living to the Maltese community, by providing the most sustainable products for the every day consumer, and a convenient place to find and discover the best eco-friendly products without having to do the research yourselves.

The Eco Market will be held every month in different locations across Malta and Gozo, and will consist of a number of vendors with fresh organic produce, natural food and snacks, ethical fashion, toys and housewares, natural and non-toxic personal care products, arts and crafts, innovative technologies and more.

There is certainly more to sustainable living than buying Eco-friendly products; so we have partnered up with several NGOs and other Organisations to bring you info booths, talks, workshops and activities to give you new insights, and provide education and awareness. There will also be social gatherings, music, art and entertainment.
