Why the Malta Eco Market deserves your attention
The EcoMarket is a cornucopia for every Maltese household that wants to better the quality of what it consumes, and at the same time actively help and promote companies, NGOs, and individuals in Malta who are engaging in sustainable and responsible business. This means you’ll be supporting:
- Fair wages to employees
- Organic growth of produce
- Local agriculture
- Business and producers who use sustainable processes (for example, by avoiding usage of plastic)
- Local small businesses who are choosing quality over profit
Eco Market is the brainchild of Zen D’Amato Gautam, event organisation guru; Marta Kurzyńska, founder of upcycling studio STH from NTH; and Majbritt Kristensen, consultant and activist. Their mission? To shine the spotlight on local producers, suppliers, and makers who prioritise quality over profits, ethical business, sustainability, and the betterment of the community.
For two days, the Eco Market will exclusively feature responsible businesses, Eco-friendly products, and organically sourced and produced foods.
It doesn’t stop there, the jam-packed weekend will include interesting talks, workshops and social gatherings – all aimed towards raising awareness about how we, as Maltese citizens, can help to safeguard Malta’s precious environment.
The Eco Market believes in collaboration over competition. In fact, the team works with over 22 organisations who share their values and vision about sustainability and green living. Together, they collaborate with several Non-Profits, NGOs, Local Councils, Voluntary Organisations, Social Enterprises, Educational Entities and other motivational businesses to bring you a broader point of view of what it means to embrace sustainability from different sectors.
