Thrift store RataPlan is a social enterprise which means the organization applies strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being. The main goal of RataPlan is to employ people with a distance to the labor market. In addition, RataPlan offers work experience and internships. Secondhand shop RataPlan is an independent non-profit foundation that works on opportunities for human development and environment.
Recycling is a core word of the foundation. People can donate their old furniture and clothes to RataPlan. Everything will be sold and if selling isn’t possible because of the quality, the material of the product will be recycled.
The variety of the products in our secondhand store is huge and we frequently change our products because our offer relies on donations.
