In honour of World Environment Day, these shopping hotspots are offering fashion junkies a few more reasons to go green. If you ever needed an excuse to go shopping, it doesn’t get more conscience-friendly than this.

For every Do U Speak Green? eco-clothing purchased till June 6, the green clothing company will plant a sapling in your name with the help of environment protection NGOs.

It has also tied up with WWF India to contribute 10 per cent of sales revenue towards wildlife protection and conservation programmes.

Log on to and make your world a greener place to live in.

Eco Corner, the environment friendly store, is launching a campaign that will keep those with a bag fetish happy and helpful.

If you have an old re-usable bag in fairly good condition, though plastic is not allowed, the company is encouraging you to donate it to them and buy a spanking new cotton tote for 10 per cent less.

What goes around comes around. Choose from a range of over 40 designs and prints in cotton bags, while giving your bag karma a healthy dose of brownie points.

Customers can choose any bag of their choice and get a flat 10 per cent off. At Eco Corner, Palladium, High Street Phoenix, Lower Parel.

Here’s a gift that’s sure to raise a few eyebrows. Haathi Chaap makes environmentally friendly gifting items from the unlikliest source- elephant poop.

Choose from a range of stationery, knick-knacks, frames, photo albums, and other funky stuff, and they promise it won’t raise a stink. Available at Tappu Ki Dukaan, Fort, near Bombay store.
