ORGANIC, ECO-FRIENDLY SHOPPING ON YOUR BARCELONA TRIP
Mapu is a wonderful organic store tucked away in the maze-like Gothic quarter, near the Barcelona Cathedral and Plaza Catalunya. This small, friendly shop is not a part of a chain or franchise and, as such, it tries to have the lowest prices and the best service.
Mapu means Earth in the Mapuche language of Chile and, as the name implies, everything they sell in this place respects and properly treats our planet.
They offer an incredibly wide range of eco-friendly, organic products and everything needed for sustainable breeding.
This is a must-stop spot for all environmentally-minded locals, as well as tourists during their holidays in Barcelona.
Great focus is on mothers and green-parenting as their aim is to make sure every baby gets an environmentally friendly start in life. Mapu offers eco baby toys, baby carriers, slings, organic-cotton clothes, baby care, washable and biodegradable diapers, organic baby food.
They mostly have locally sourced, low-impact products, and as many fair-trade items as possible. Here you can find certified organic meat substitutes, grains, organic seasonal vegetables, biologic wines, beers and other spirits, a wide assortment of flavoured tofu choices, muesli, tinned food, fair-trade tea and coffee, food supplements, gluten-free products.
They also have earth-friendly cleaning products and environmentally safe laundry and dish detergents. There is a large offer of organic Weleda cosmetics, natural soaps, shampoos, hennas, natural make-up products, perfumes, all ecological and without having been tasted on animals.
This little gem with its philosophy of sustainability should be an inevitable stop on your Barcelona shopping tour.
