If you’ve lived in Malmö for a bit, you’ll probably notice it has a well-equipped system for sorting out your trash. But oftentimes the plastic and paper boxes would be overflowing with cartons or plastic packaging which can easily be avoided.
Here comes GRAM, and your ticket to call yourself a true local. Tucked away in a little corner of St Knut’s square, GRAM is a treasure trove for the trash warriors and those of you who want to go deeper into Malmo’s sustainability and wellness scene.
Walk in to find plastic-free soaps, reusable sponges made of sustainable material, farm-fresh organic eggs, bulk loose-leaf teas, and spices. Walk into the back and you’ll find every essential grain, lentils, beans, nuts, and seed you will ever need. What’s even better is that you can buy some delicious-tasting olive oil, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and Tamari to add to your liquid pantry.
All this comes in paper bags that you weigh yourself or leftover glass containers that the local residents of Malmo have donated for a second chance at being used. As you check out, be sure to taste the newest kombucha flavor and the flyers on the pin-up board. You may find some hidden treasures that entrench you deeper into Malmo’s burgeoning local scene.
