What Makes It Awesome

Eco Indian on Ranga Road in Mylapore is the store we're talking about. Yes, it may seem like a regular grocery store at first, but in reality, it is definitely worth checking out as all their merch is sustainable. Let's start with food (obviously). We found organic rice, millet, and oil varieties right from ragi, horse gram, and quinoa to brown rice, groundnut oil, and jowar at Eco Indian. These are priced from INR 90 per kg. As you walk into the store, you'll find cloth totes and pouches in eight different sizes. Turn towards the long shelves and they have utensils made of cornstarch, areca - plates, spoons, bowls, cups, all starting INR 25. Perfect for throwing an 'ecofunly' party, we think. On the other side, Eco Indian has cruelty-free, handmade and vegan bath and body products. Different flavours of soaps (including turmeric, neem, and Tulsi), body butter, hair masks, and face masks starting INR 180. They've got a cute stationery collection with fabric notebooks, plantable pencils, steel, and bamboo straws too starting INR 12. Eco Indian also has Ecofemme pads. You can try their herbal haircare which is for both men and women, and their non-toxic laundry detergent and floor cleaners starting INR 200. They've got traditional soapstone utensils as well as some home decor products, so drop by Eco Indian to shop all-things-sustainable!
