COOPERATIVE PROJECT 2DECOLOGICO
2decológico is a cooperative project born of the necessity to get small local producers in touch with responsible consumers in the center of Madrid, and with the intention of creating a community that favors the commercialization of local organic products.
Our cooperative is made up of local producers, consumers and the two partners who undertook the project. In September of 2014 we began to develop the idea to create an organized consumer group. After two years of developing the project in a tiny shop on Calle 2 de Mayo, in October 2016 we made the leap to a larger shop on Calle Noviciado 9with two new lines of business: at our new shop you will find local organic products and training in responsible consumption.
We facilitate access to organic products that come from small local producers. We guarantee the origin of our products to assure their quality and mode of production in order to create the least impact on the environment as possible. We price each product with dignity so as to allow the producer to continue to give life to his or her products and the consumer to enjoy the fruits of this labor.
We encourage the participation of the people in our community. Together we all make possible the existence of 2decologico and decide the direction the project will take.
