Still looking for a fun activity to do during your staycation? Then we have the perfect idea for you… This summer, in collaboration with the city of Bruges, COSH! is launching a walking and cycling map around Bruges’ sustainable shopping spots!
Chances are that you have already seen the authentic buildings and beautiful canals of Bruges. But did you know that Bruges also has quite the selection of cosy shops with sustainable products? Use the online COSH! shopping guide tool, or our new interactive COSH! x Bruges map to find a list of shops in Bruges where at least 30% of their stock is sustainable.
The usual well-known sustainable brands are dotted around numerous fashion boutiques with great atmospheres that are definitely worth the visit. Discover some unique circular brands as well that can only be found within Belgium in Bruges. The walking route also takes you to the most Instagram-worthy spots and the best vegan (take away) lunch and coffee places.
Each COSH! shop has a unique QR code on the COSH! x Bruges shopping map as well as in their shop windows. Scan their code and read about the sustainability of that shop on the COSH! website. As a consumer, do you choose sustainable brands? Then encourage retailers to offer more of these by buying from their sustainable ranges.
COSH! has launched the very first sustainable fashion and lifestyle scavenger hunt for the city of Bruges.
But that’s not all! The map is also linked to a scavenger hunt that teaches you all about sustainable fashion. Take our walking route through the city centre or our cycling route around the outskirts of Bruges and find out about the basic concepts of shopping sustainably and what to look out for.
You’ll learn loads of facts and fun tips for a sustainable wardrobe and a greener lifestyle. Do you know what algae, wood and plastic have to do with fashion...? You'll have to go find out! And don’t worry, the scavenger hunt is “corona-proof”. Answers can easily be scanned in the shop windows when they’re closed.
If you do the scavenger hunt and find all the answers then make sure you fill them in here. Every two months, we pick a random name from the list of people who have completed the hunt and give them a COSH! x Bruges shopping voucher worth 100€!
So, what are you waiting for?! Get those shoes or cycling shorts on and go visit beautiful Bruges! The scavenger hunt and shopping maps are available at the tourist information points at 't Zand and Bruges Station and at all participating shops.
Too impatient and want to plan your trip ASAP? Find all of the shops with sustainable products via our COSH! shopping guide. Just select what you’re looking for, what your budget and style are and then a list of shops adapted to your wishes will pop up.
