Think about shopping at markets or directly from local producers, via basket distributions (such as those offered by Campus Vert Strasbourg) or farm sales ("Mangeons local"). There are also shops where you can buy in bulk. And don't hesitate to check out structures that recycle fridges, kettles, telephones, computers... (reuse), such as Envie or the Humanis collective, other solidarity purchases are also possible in Emmaus.

NATURE IN THE CITY

In Strasbourg, the most economical, fun (and sporty too!) way to get around, apart from walking (which is also very pleasant along the quays, in the small streets...), is of course by bike! Lots of useful information on where to buy or repair it here. At the beginning of the school year, there is usually a second-hand bike sale on campus and you can rent a "Vélhop" (bike with a green basket and all the equipment and maintenance included) for 10 months at a very special student rate.
