Circular inspiration: Munich’s secondhand store
Munich has taken its ambitious waste reduction strategy to the next level by developing an innovative reuse lab and shop concept. Its Halle 2 municipal secondhand store not only enables citizens to take responsibility for living more sustainably, it also provides opportunities for job creation, educational programmes and voluntary activities.

Bettina Folger, project leader Halle 2, said: “Halle 2 has shown how circular economy can become a win-win-win situation for the environment, the economy and society. By delivering a simple service as a secondhand shop, and thanks to the involvement of different types of stakeholders and a strong political commitment, this project has been able to bring circular economy at the core of Munich citizens’ everyday life.”
