Development of the Sustainable Grocery on EPFL campus

Healthy eating, local and zero waste? Yes, I'd like to, but it's a pain in the ass. . . it looks expensive. . . and I don't have time. . . If only there was a bio-local-bulk grocery store on campus!

Project description

EpiLibre, it’s the bulk grocery store that’s going to roll over on you!

It’s been a year since the sustainable grocery project won the Act for Change Lab contest, and it’s the beginning of the adventure. The fact is that there is a real demand for a Bio-Local-Bulk grocery store on campus. The idea was then born and the construction of a prototype cabinet that could accommodate silos and bulk bins became a reality. The desire is that it can move around to be as close as possible to the students: on the Esplanade on market days or on other days in the SV hall, and then close to put it away. After a few months of reflection and searching for local materials, construction can begin. And when the new school year starts, the store will finally be able to open its doors!
