We use everything that nature has to offer
Together with local entrepreneurs, Nature Bar fight waste and work towards a circular economy. Think of a natural body soap with repurposed orange peels, from a local juice bar.
We owe it to the planet to take better care of it and to use raw materials differently. Want to know what else we are doing?
That is why every soap and shampoo bar contains a circular ingredient.
Why a circular economy?
It may sound complicated, but a circular economy is actually very simple. A circular economy is an industrial-economic system in which raw materials are not exhausted, but can be reused. In this form of economy there is therefore (virtually) no waste. Despite the fact that there are more and more sustainable materials, recycling is of course the best option. This way you give materials a second life.
A major advantage of a circular economy and circular products is that considerably less raw materials are needed.
Why are we fans of a circular economy?
Worldwide, population and prosperity are growing. As a result, the demand for raw materials is increasing, while the raw materials themselves are rapidly decreasing. This also creates more and more waste. A circular economy offers many solutions. With a circular economy, we are less dependent on scarce raw materials. And fewer raw materials are needed to make circular products. Ultimately, this also results in less waste. So a win-win-win situation.
The Netherlands has set the goal to have a fully circular economy by 2050.
Why circular soap?
In the soap shop in Amsterdam, the pure natural soap and shampoo bars are handmade according to slow artisanal methods.
Together with local entrepreneurs, we are working on a circular economy. For example, we use orange peels from a local juice bar and coffee from a local coffee roaster. This way we prevent waste and we work together towards a cleaner city and a better environment.
