Unique Green Products & Services in India



In this post, I would like to list down various sources that I am aware about from which you can get green products and services in India. What I have listed here is definitely a small subset of numerous options available around, but it took significant amount of time, energy and travel for me to gather all this information. I am just trying to make it easier for public, and by doing that I am hoping that more people make greener choices in their lives. Hope you like this post.

To begin with, I am not going to focus a lot on widely discussed areas such as agriculture, gardening, rain water harvesting, pollution control etc. unless I come across something really special. The focus will be more on unique products and services that can help a common person make more conscious choices in his/her day to day life.

Secondly, since I am currently in Bengaluru, the focus is naturally more on the people and organizations I see and meet around. If I get relevant and verifiable data from other parts of India, I would be glad to include them.

I will keep this post updated whenever I get more information.
