文字稿

This shopping mall in Sweden may look pretty normal. But look closely at the items for sale in its 14 specialist shops. You'll realise there's something quite different about it.

瑞典的这家购物中心也许看起来很正常,但仔细看看这里十四家专卖店所出售的商品,就会发现它其实截然不同。

Everything for sale here is second-hand. The mall only sells items that are recycled or ‘upcycled’, meaning unwanted items broken down and reinvented as something new.

这里出售的每样货品都是二手的。这家购物中心只出售经过回收或 “升级改造过的” 商品,也就是说,不需要的物品会被拆解,然后被改造成新的东西。

Anna Bergstrom, ReTuna Mall Manager
You can come and just do sustainable shopping and Sweden loves it. And the world loves it. Everyone wants to be like us.

安娜·伯格斯特龙     ReTuna 购物中心经理
“人们来这里以注重环保的方式购物,瑞典人很喜欢。全世界都钟爱这一理念。大家都想像我们一样。”

The clever thing about this mall in Eskilstuna near Stockholm is its location. It's right next to the city's recycling centre. So a steady stream of cars is already coming to drop off unwanted household items. This produces a regular supply of stock for the shops. When goods arrive, a team sorts everything into categories.

购物中心位于斯德哥尔摩附近的埃斯基尔斯蒂纳,它妙在选址好。它就在这个城市的回收中心旁边。因此,源源不断的汽车来卸下没人要的家居用品。这就给商店提供了定期的存货。货物到达后,团队会将所有东西分类。

The mall’s shopkeepers can then pick out which things they want to sell or use as material for upcycling. One of the most popular shops in the mall specialises in handmade household ornaments. This is its best-selling item. It's made from worn-out leather jackets.

购物中心各店主随即可挑选出他们想要出售的商品或用作升级改造材料的物品。这里最受欢迎的一家商店专卖手工家居装饰品。这是它最畅销的商品,是用破旧的皮夹克做成的。

In 2018, the mall sold second-hand goods worth $1.3 million, meaning unwanted items found new homes.
2018年,购物中心售出的二手商品总价值为130万美元,这意味着没人要的东西找到了新的归属。
