Sustainable shopping in Hamburg

Fair trade, eco fashion and plastic-free shopping

What would a city trip to Hamburg be without a shopping tour? You can shop especially fairly and sustainably in the owner-operated boutiques in Hamburg's lively districts. Many stores carry trendy green labels. In small shops you can discover creative, very special Hamburg souvenirs - from jewellery and decorations made from old books or driftwood, to bags made from PET bottles, to chocolate pralines handmade by women with a migration background. Enjoy the shopping!
