The story of L'épicerie
We is actually me, Caroline, that decided a year ago to focus on my project to open a plastic-free shop in Leiden.
It all started because I realized how difficult it is to do your groceries, buy your household or skincare products without plastic packaging.
When I moved to the Netherlands two and a half years ago, me and my boyfriend started to separate the plastic from the rest of the waste, to become truly aware of the quantity of plastic packaging we were consuming.
With this new information, we then looked for solutions to reduce our plastic consumption and realized that there was no bulk shop in Leiden.
I therefore decided to open one myself to make bulk and packaging-free shopping accessible to everyone!
