Eyes bigger than your tummy?

At the shopping center's food court we provide free take-away boxes for our customers near cinemas NOS.

The objective of this sustainability initiative is thus to reduce food waste, giving our customers the chance to take back home any leftovers from their meals purchased in the food court. The boxes provided are prepared for placing food (resistant to oils and grease) and are biodegradable and recyclable. In addition to avoiding food waste, it was intended to use environmentally friendly materials.

Let's fill up the pantry for those who need it most? ✨

This initiative aimed at create awareness for the contribution of non-perishable food products and other essential items to several needy families in the Algarve. These products (with a minimum expiration date of 6 months) were delivered to the Solidarity Pantry (Floor 0, near Pingo Doce) and MAR Shopping Algarve took care of sending the donations to the pantries of several families.

Donations will revert to families supported by the following institutions:

Refood Almancil
Animal Rescue Algarve
Cruz Vermelha



Because Christmas is for everyone, in 2021 MAR Shopping Algarve was once again promoting a solidary action that united solidarity and sustainability. ♻️

We all have those items of clothing or shoes that haven't come out of the closet for months or years. The challenge was to make a selection of the garments people no longer wore and deposit them in our solidarity "box" or by the solidarity store next to the Christmas Village.

In this way, extending the lifespan of clothing, we also contribute to a more sustainable world.

Roupeiro Solidario



We promoted a campaign to donate items and equipment in favor of the Housing First and Shared Apartments project carried out by Associação G.A.T.O.

The solidarity box was located next to the Information Desk, at the main entrance and all the necessary goods could be found at the Information Desk. Small gestures make the biggest difference! ❤️


MAR Shopping Algarve boosts adoption campaigns promoted by Animal Rescue Algarve - ARA 🐾

With this action we give the opportunity to meet a new friend for life and inform people about how they can support ARA and the animal cause in Portugal.

Over the past few years, MAR Shopping Algarve has marked Animal Day with various initiatives to support associations, promoting adoption and raising awareness of the problem of abandonment. At MAR Shopping Algarve, all animals are always welcome, being able to circulate in the common spaces (except the Catering Space) and in some of the participating stores.

During the holiday season, we encouraged everyone to help those who needed it most.

The initiative to support Refood Almancil aimed to help needy families in the region with the contribution of everyone who passed through the shopping center. Contributions could be deposited in the solidary fund near Pingo Doce.

Together, we made Christmas a happier time.
