Saint-Gilles now home to the first shopping centre promoting the circular economy

“Yuman” opened its doors last week in Saint-Gilles. The shopping centre is a place that brings together different products, of natural or recycled origin, and aims to promote and uphold the “circular economy” (an economic system aimed at minimising waste and making the most of available resources).

The surface area of the premises is 1400 square metres, but for the moment only 800 square metres are being used. For the time being, the rest of the available space will be used as a reading area or an exhibition.

Yuman will also offer the option of renting and repairing its products.
