Sustainable spots in Copenhagen

Maybe you are already living a very sustainable lifestyle or maybe you could do a little bit more, just like me. Traveling can be a big cost for the climate and I think it is important to remember, that we don’t have to go far away to explore and get new experiences. I bike a lot and try to explore as much of Copenhagen as I can, but sometimes there is months in between my visits to my favorite museums. Why is that? Why are we not better at appreciating all the things we have just around the corner and keep on craving for adventures overseas? Nespresso challenged me to find some sustainable spots in Copenhagen and with the help of all you who are following me on Instagram, I have created this little mini guide. Hopefully it will create a spark with some of you and make you jump on your bike too, to explore some of these spots or even just your own local neighborhood.


I jumped on the new RE:CYCLE bike, that Nespresso made in collaboration with Vélosophy. The bike is made out of 40% recycled aluminum, of which there are approx. 300 recycled Nespresso coffee capsules in each bike. Only 1000 of these bikes are produced and sold exclusively through Vélosophy. You can see more from my bikeride around Copenhagen with Nespresso, right here.

Copenhagen Architecture

Riding your bike around Copenhagen or any city for that matter, is such an easy way to see lots of beautiful architecture, all for free. I would recommend to see:

The Royal Library Garden

Storm Bridge

The Danish Parliament

The Circle Bridge

Mater Earth Gallery

Mater is a conscious and ethical design brand with a strong design philosophy and great craftsmanship. Through collaborations with an external base of established and fresh design talent, Mater combines exclusive high-end furniture and lighting, with working methods that support people, local craft traditions and the environment. The aesthetic of Mater has clear references to Scandinavian minimalism and the designs are all made with sustainably or ethically sourced materials.

Gothersgade 43, 1123 København K


Yume is the Japanese word for dream. They want to inspire to a continuous focus on sustainability when shopping for furniture, lighting, home accessories and lifestyle products. And when living life in general.

Århusgade 138A, 2150 Nordhavn

Juno the Bakery

If you are not the baking type, make sure to get your organic baked good at Juno the Bakery. The line might be long but it is always worth the wait.

Aarhusgade 48, 2100 København Ø


A secondhand supermarket with clothes and furniture. They even have fitting rooms and a great little café. I would spend at least one hour here. It takes a while to go through everything and there are so many treasures to find.

Strynøgade 7, 2100 København


A unique way to explore Copenhagen is from the harbour. The boats are powered by the sun, they sell organic snacks and drinks and have used sustainable wood to build the pavilion, dock and the tables in the boats.

Islands Brygge 10, 2300 København S


Clothing and homeware carefully curated with respect for ethics and environment. A living destination for the entire family with focus on respect for all resources. By caring for generations to come we become responsible in every choice we make. Sustainable fashion for women, men, kids and their home.

Guldbergsgade 29C, 2200 København

And if you have time to drop off your Nespresso capsules for recycling, that is of course preferable. The more sustainable steps we can take towards a greener planet, the better. And recycling with Nespresso is a step in the right direction.
