Eco-friendly hotels and city breaks in Paris
The carbon footprint of travelling by train is considerably lower than that of flying, so with Eurostar you’re already off to a good start.
Next, where to stay? A growing number of Parisian hotels are trying to reduce their impact on the environment by changing towels and sheets less regularly, using low energy bulbs and appliances, recycling and using environmentally-friendly cleaning products.

Le Bichat11 Rue Bichat, 75010
This smart café with a soul rustles up all-day veggie-friendly fare that’s as easy on the eyes as it is on the wallet. Le Bichat works directly with farmers, taking care to source organic produce as locally as possible. Everything’s made on the premises, from the colourful and nutrient-packed rice bowls to the scrumptious cakes. Grab a seat on the mezzanine level to linger a while.
Les Sauvageonnes10 bis Rue Lamartine, 75009
Tucked away in quiet side street near the foodie delights of rue des Martyrs, this fashion label takes care to tread lightly. Having interned at Courrèges, designer Léa Schaffhauser now focuses on made-in-France clothes sewn from organic fabrics or couture offcuts. Nothing is wasted, with scraps getting turned into natty headbands, totes and clutches.
Humphris2 Rue Milton, 75009
Pack a picnic hamper from Humphris, an organic deli with a mission to connect consumers directly with the people who produce their food. 300 loaves are baked three times a week on their farm in the Yvelines, but there’s more to tempt the gourmet besides. Raid the shelves for cold cuts, artisanal cheeses, honeys and other preserves, all sourced from hand-picked farms.
Bisou15 Boulevard du Temple, 75003
The neon’s pink, hanging plants dress the terrace and there’s flamingo wallpaper in the toilets... So far, so millennial. But this charming cocktail bar also prides itself on taking small steps to ease its impact on the environment. Plastic straws have been banned, and fruit and veg are picked according to the seasons and reused in garnishes. Cheers to that.
Kiliwatch Collect Or46 Rue Saint-André des Arts, 75006
Forget fusty stores packed with undesirable cast-offs: this upcycling spin-off from vintage stalwart Kiliwatch gives clothes a second lease of life. The collection has a breezy Parisian feel. Browse the racks for polka-dot dresses, floral playsuits and ruffled blouses. Don’t miss the carefully curated selection of vintage accessories, from cross-body bags to adorable straw hats.
