GREEN THE GAP
Leading the spurt in eco- initiatives in the city is Green the Gap, a store that was launched earlier this year by Delhi- based NGO Swechha. The store raises awareness about environmental issues by recycling waste products and one can find fashion and home décor accessories made from recycled tyre tubes, rice sacks, milk bags and tetra packs. Some of the exciting products stocked here include hand- painted bags and backpacks made out of rice sacks, colourful wallets, multi- purpose pouches, laptop bags, coin purses, coasters and magnets made of discarded tyre tubes with waste cloth used as lining.
