Poland Żabka goes green

Green projects
Convenience store Żabka has opened a store on ul. Lewandów in Warsaw to showcase all the latest ecologically sustainable technology systems.

The store has a kinetic floor to generate electricity from footsteps, windows with quantum dots that act as solar panels and a charging station outside for electric vehicles.


In the store, we have installed around 20 different ecologically friendly systems including a kinetic floor and quantum dot windows that capture energy from sunlight. We have also tried to equip the store in the most ecologically-friendly manner, using furniture made from recycled materials and walls made of plastic bottles collected by people working on the project. We are the first to test such systems not only in the retail world but also globally. We hope the store, which local residents were happy to visit earlier, will now pique their interest and encourage them to engage in their own pro-ecological activities.
Adam Manikowski, the deputy CEO of Żabka Polska


The store also includes 40 solar panels on the roof and all electricity used in the store comes from renewable sources
