Vegan Beauty Store* 12.00 - 19.00, Sunday Closed* Closest metro: Étienne Marcel (4 min) and Réaumur – Sébastopol (6 min)* A vegan beauty store is almost unthinkable in Paris and we were quite pleasantly surprised too for finding this gem in the heart of Paris. This vegan beauty store is like a dream come true with a great range of vegan skincare, makeup (that’s even harder to find), bath and body, perfumes and hygiene. The store carries some of the best vegan brands from around the world including Lily Lolo, SpaRitual, Pacifica, Mu London, Pai and John Masters Organics. And when you are done stocking your makeup-box you can head to the vegetarian place Le Stand nearby for a hearty vegan meal. P.S. They also have an online store.

Vegan Supermarket* 12.00 - 20.00, Sunday Closed * Closest metro: Temple (5 min) and Strasbourg Saint-Denis (6 min)* Just when you thought Paris wasn’t vegan friendly it will shock and surprise you. Paris boasts of its own vegan supermarket, right in the heart of the city, which even some of the most vegan friendly cities also lack. The supermarket stocks everything from a super wide selection of vegan cheese from around the world to vegan butters, vegan cookies (we discovered Le Moulin Du Pivert chocolate chip cookies & they’re amazing), ice-creams, vegan ready-to-eat meals (Tofurkey, sausages, pizzas), vegan chocolates and even vegan foie gras. They even have eco-friendly vegan cleaning products plus a decent selection of personal care and vegan makeup.

Concepted with the idea that you can find all tings vegan at one place – right from your clothing and accessories to cosmetics, books, pet products and things for your home, this curated store is chic and stylish. The brightairy space with urban chic décor is quite a treat to the eyes too. This does not deter the founders from creating a completely ethical space – everything at this vegan store is palm-oil free, organic, eco-friendly and local (As much possible). So next time you are looking for a pair of vegan shoes – Paris is your place to find one!

Ethical, Lifestyle Concept Store* 10.00 - 19.00 (Sun opens 11hrs) * Closest metro: Rambuteau (5 min) and Réaumur – Sébastopol (6 min) * Located in the heart of Haut Marais and housed in a sprawling airy, well-lit loft, which was once a 19th century fabric factory, Merci is arguably one of the most influential concept stores in the world. But what makes this place stand out from the rest is not only its Parisian chic but its philanthropic flair - all profits from Merci go to charities. The store picks a different association every year to support a specific cause. Before you dismiss it as a glorified charity shop, the store founder clarifies “We don’t people to buy because it is a charity thing. This isn’t a charity shop. The purpose here is to make money”. The elaborate-three floored store has very well-curated mix of fashion, design, beauty and home good and stocks everything from fashion, furniture, stationery, jewelry, childrenwear, home décor and books. Everything is classy and there is something for every budget – refurbished vintage furniture to boho Isabel Marant’s dresses and high-design chandelier. Once you’ve done browsing and shopping you’re bound to build an appetite, that can be satiated at the vegan restaurant Loving Hut, right opposite it.

The curated collection of this store is amazing and each piece is handpicked by Fanny herself that she discovered during one of her world travels. Designers from Sweden, Tokyo, London and LA all house together in this amazing store. While it is not really an ethical store, they do have a lot of ethical fashion brands and also clothing handmade using organic cotton and other sustainable natural fabrics. Our picks are Whyred tailored suits made from tencel and cotton, Miranda Bennett’s ethically produced and naturally dyed cotton dresses, Danish Brand Base Range’s bamboo body t-shirts, beautiful handcrafted one-of-a-kind jewelry from Wilhelmina Garcia and effortless and chic striped dresses and tshirts from ethical brand Ace and Jig

Housed alongside chic labels like Maje and APC, Center Commercial is a cool ethical lifestyle concept store with a focus on quality ethical fashion that believes in supporting small-scale artisan industry from around the world. A project by the sustainable shoe brand Veja, the light airy store with minimalist chic interiors using Scandinavian furniture is a heaven for conscientious shoppers. Although not exclusively vegan, the store offers plenty of vegan-friendly options, which are all fair trade, like ecological handmade shoes from Slovakian brand Novesta (most of their styles are vegan), contemporary Parisian menswear Bleu De Paname , soft cotton t-shirts from Antwerp based Howling’ by Morrison , preppy fine Egyptian cotton socks from Bonne Maison, super stylish clothing from sustainable brand Valentine Gauthier (she has her own store in Paris too), exquisitely designed brass pens from Krama Studio, chic Parisian eco-friendly sunglasses from BOIS2 (made from bio-plastic) and sustainably produced vegetable soaps from Marius Fabre.

The staff may not very well know about the vegan selection, but the products will have the vegan logo. They have an online store too, with a vegan filter!

5-star Luxury Hotel, Free Wifi* Rooms from €750 * Closest metro: Iéna (2 min) and Boissière (7 min)* For luxury vegan travellers there’s no better place than Shangri-La Paris, located near Trocadero and just 4-minute walk from the Palais de Tokyo art museum. With amazing views of Eiffel Tower, enter the regal and opulent Shangri-La, which was once the private mansion of the great-nephew of Napolean, Roland Bonaparte. This 1896 built limestone mansion with its sky-high ceilings, crystal chandeliers, wedding cake moldings, string of historic salons, spacious rooms and larger than life suites is pure indulgence with an authentic taste of French grand lifestyle. There’s a good reason why we picked this particular hotel for vegan travellers – the 100% vegan afternoon tea menu prepared by the celebrated Pastry Chef Michaël Bartocetti, a feast not to be missed. Think vegan Calissan and Mont Blanc pastry, fair trade and organic chocolate tarte, vegan scones with clotted cream and jam, mini sandwiches, cookies and classic figulo with gold leaf, rosehip and hibiscus infusion. Just when you thought Paris couldn’t surprise you, it just did! Request for a vegan friendly room.
