Sustainable because...

  • Most products are sustainable in some way: many products are Fair Trade certified, organic, ecological, made of recycled materials or produced in sheltered workshops
  • The WAAR shops are environmentally friendly decorated by using energy saving lighting, renewable energy, FSC certified furniture and ecological paints.
  • WAAR developed WAARborgen (‘guarantees’): icons on products that show in an eye’s notice why they are considered sustainable. 


WAAR is one of the first sustainable gift shops in the Netherlands. Its assortment contains a wide variety of products that are Fair Trade, organic, ecological, recycled or another sustainable background. In this way WAAR tries to provide an alternative for less sustainable gifts. 

They sell bags made of recycled plastic bottles or beautiful bags and wallets made of ecologically processed leather by O My Bag. You can find candles made of Fair Trade palm oil and DIY-candles made of used backing oil. And with the reusable Dopper and KRNWTR bottles you will never need plastic bottles ever again. De WAAR even has notebooks made of recycled paper and elephant dung! The droppings of elephants contain a substance that makes recycled paper extra strong.

WAAR also offers all kinds of foods, such as Fair Trade and organic teas, wok sauces, wines and chocolates. You can find many variations of ‘on-the-road-to-100%-slave free’ Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate, or the Chocolate Makers bars, whose organic ‘Gorilla Bars’ contribute to the protection of mountain gorillas in Virunga National Park, Eastern-Congo.

In short, each gift at WAAR has an interesting background. Hence its slogan ‘A gift of WAAR is not a gift to yourself or to another, but also a gift to the world’. More information about WAAR can be found at
