Eco friendly shopping in Kuta Lombok

At Same Same Hangout you can’t only enjoy great food and refreshing drinks, discover craft beers, play games and read books or magazines,… you can also do some eco-friendly shopping while you’re here!

Surely during your travels to Southeast Asia, you’ve noticed the amount of plastic and other waste that fills beaches, streets, rivers and oceans. We see it every day and we’ve had enough! Surely we can participate in the beach clean ups that are organized in the area regularly and live consciously ourselves, but we feel that is not enough.

We try to run our business as environmentally friendly as possible and with our shop, we try to encourage our guests to travel in the same way.
Together with Zero Waste Lombok ( ), a local initiative, we’ve set up a little shop filled with lots of goodies to help save our planet earth. Our range goes from soap and shampoo bars to solid deodorant, shopping bags, beeswax wraps, bamboo toothbrushes, organicups and reusable straws and cutlery. All of our products help reduce plastic waste and contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle, which is exactly what we need for our future to start looking a bit brighter.

Our range of handmade jewelry is awaiting you as well to make you look fabulous or to surprise a loved one with! Come in, have a look around and try on some earrings, bracelets or necklaces, all made from natural materials found on our Lombok beaches.

Especially with the holidays coming up, surely you will be able to make lots of people happy with a gift that says ‘I love you AND mother earth’!
Come and do some eco friendly shopping at Same Same Hangout! You’ll go home happy knowing you’ve made yourself or someone else happy and at the same time you’ve contributed to a better future.

Eco Friendly!

Living in Lombok makes us very aware of the environmental issues that arise around the world and especially in developing countries such as Indonesia. We feel that we can all contribute to changing this around and have built our place and our menu with exactly that thought in mind.

We’ve used lots of natural materials for the build and decorations and we try to be as eco friendly as possible on a daily basis.

  • stainless steel straws
  • many vegan food options
  • home grown fruits and vegetables
  • lots of solar powered lights
  • as little plastic wrappings as possible
  • hand crafted cups and plates from the local pottery village
  • water refill station open to everyone
  • … and many more little things that help us make this island a little bit cleaner and healthier for everyone.
