At CAMELEON, we firmly believe in harmonious development with the environment. With this in mind, when CAMELEON decided to relocate its Woluwe outlet to offer a new retail space to its members, it took the bold step of going down the sustainable construction route. This is how the Woluwe outlet, which opened its doors in 2010, became the first commercial centre to be eco-constructed in Europe.
From the building design, to the actual construction, and also the choice of materials used, CAMELEON selected options in each case which were sustainable and environmentally friendly.
This building allows a considerable reduction in the eco 'footprint'. Find out more
With precisely the latter in mind, CAMELEON also supports Brussels beekeepers with the installation of beehives on the roof garden and in front of the Woluwe building. Urban beehives?! Yes, it's possible and what's more, the bees enjoy their life!
DO SOMETHING is the new brand launched by CAMELEON with a strong environmental concern.
Whatever the item, we strive to work with ecological and recyclable materials and carefully choose our partners based on their own commitments.
The DO SOMETHING articles available at our outlets also support associations targeting objectives in the interests of society or the environment. This is already reflected with the active support offered to the Brussels beekeepers ASBL BeeOdiversity, de NATAGORA ESM and the Graine de Vie, ('Grain of Life') association, which plants new trees in Madagascar. Our objective? To plant 100,000 trees!
We support those associations with an active role in building a better world for and on behalf of our fellow men and women. These elements of support are the product of a meeting, an exchange and a sharing of our vision. We don't believe in luck, we believe in meetings.
