Tubes with different sorts of seeds at Kabas

The climate change mars in Brussels once again reminded us how important our environnement is. In 2019 all plastic bags at the counters of supermarkets are to be replaced by paper bags, because they’re less polluting. But is that really the way to go? 

In search for answers, we stumbled upon Kabas, a package-free store in Mechelen. To get an expert opinion on the matter, we also talked to Luc Ardies, an Unizo retailexpert.
