When you’re on holidays wandering through local markets and boutique shops can be a lovely way to spend an hour or two. Leisurely exploring the unique and beautiful gifts, coastal fashion, homewares, and souvenirs is a luxury you don’t always have at home but a beach getaway is the perfect place to slow down and take your time browsing.
Lemana Lane in Miami is home to Sustainable Social, the Gold Coast’s zero waste pop up night market which takes place on the first Sunday of the month from 4pm onwards at the Karma Collab Hub. Think eco friendly, all things sustainable, and waste-free.
You’ll love rubbing shoulders with like-minded locals and learning ways to make a difference and leave the world a better place. Whether you’re an eco-warrior or just a little curious about alternatives that are better for the environment, you’ll love these night markets. You might just head home after your holiday and put your new zero-waste pantry skillset to use!
You can enjoy some delicious plant based bites to eat and delicious beverages from the exciting food vendors, or a few sustainable products, gifts, or just a few ideas on ways to improve your environmental footprint.
