NS launches its very own shop with items made from leftover materials

Environmentalism strikes a win, as the Dutch rail company announced that it will open a pop-up store for upcycled products made from NS materials.

According to a recent press release, this sustainability initiative is due to the NS wanting to repurpose old materials that are still usable in order to give them a second life.

When and where?

The pop-up store will open its doors from February 6 to 11 (Monday to Saturday), at the NS Upcycle Shop in Rotterdam Centraal. ๐Ÿš†

The store will be open from 8 AM to 8 PM from Tuesday to Friday, and from 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday.

Unable to visit the store in person? Geen stress! You can also order products online on the NS Upcycle Shop.

What’s available?

Stationery abounds, such as notebooks with covers made from old information boards. The same information boards have also been upcycled into funky coasters.

Meanwhile, repurposed upholstery has also been crafted into a range of sneakers, espadrilles, bags, laptop/tablet covers, and much, much more.

The NS website proudly states that these have all been made by hand in the Netherlands and that some products (such as slippers) are even made with vegan wool. Stylish and environmentally friendly? We’re impressed! ๐Ÿ‘€
