Environmental emergency, degradation of social bounds: Païsan was born from the desire to take actions, to offer sustainable solutions and develop relationships. Online, Païsan provides the edition of items meeting social and environmental issues, as well as medias highlighting solutions and players for change. Good news, for a green and ethical Fall, Païsan opens a temporary workshop in Paris Marais from September 3 to 20, 2020. Meet on Thursday September 3, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. for the grand opening!
This is a place for meetings, listening to talks, and shopping sustainable items such as the linen pouch. Even though @paisan_officiel Instagram account already reached 55,000 followers, a temporary address for Païsan is the occasion to widen the community and create physical bounds. Let’s talk, let’s learn, this is ethical!
For instance, did you know that the cotton Tote Bag is not that eco-friendly? It is a bit the plastic bag of the 21st century when one thinks about the obscene amount of water it needs to grow cotton and the number of kilometers needed to transport it. As for linen, it grows very well only with rainwater, and there is a lot in France. And France even is the world leader of linen production. This is what Païsan teaches us!
The idea is to get rid of all these aberrations and find a good meaning and highlight solutions that exist and people who make them. Therefore, meet in Paris Marais to be part of this change through many entertainments available.
