Avenida de la Riera de Cassoles, 37 Barcelona
The latest upstart to enter the eco-friendly, sustainable granel field in Barcelona is Colibri Productos, a true family affair with mother and daughter running the store, while the father makes deliveries around the city. Dedicated to reducing waste and the reuse of packaging as much as possible, Colibri is a vegan-friendly bulk shop with a variety of products like legumes, grains, flour, spices, tea, nuts, and dried fruits.
The store also sells Salvados beer, a local craft brew that is both ecological and organic. Colibri holds true to its eco-conscious philosophy; everything in the store, from the shelves to the bags to carry out their products are reused, recycled, or upcycled.

Mi-Mo Korean Cosmetics A recent addition to the Korean Cosmetics in Barcelona club, the relatively small Mi-Mo was started just a year ago by entrepreneur Tamara Kovkel. Despite a smaller storefront and online presence, Mi-Mo delivers a more affordable collection (sheet masks for only 1.50€) of unique Korean beauty treatments combined with one-on-one instruction about how to use Harry-Potter-potion style products, such as soothing placenta face masks, snail mucin serums, and spider web toners. A second location is coming at Calvet, 44. Most popular product: Secret Key Lemon Sparkling Peel Gel (13.60€) To Try: Gel-consistency toners that don’t require a cotton ball or swab. The folks at Mi-Mo have strong feelings about adhering to toner use, despite it being an extra step shoehorned between post-cleansing and pre-moisturizing. The delicious smelling Hyaluronic Moisture Toner from It’s Skin (16.99€) makes it easier to add it to your routine.
