Ever heard of clothing that can purify the air around you? Or perhaps a spectacular effigy made completely out of used kitchenware? Maybe a stunning portrait of Steve Jobs made only using used electronic items?

If caring for the planet is a concern of our generation today, The Change Initiative has gone several steps ahead to offer a lifestyle concept that’s unique, loving and simply incredible.

The new store in Dubai houses little known but responsible brands that put the planet first. From fashion and accessories, cosmetics and jewelry to electronics to home and kitchenware to edible delights, this concept store totally bowled me over, not just with its ethos, but also by putting its money where its mouth is.

I checked out this amazing collection of hand painted jewelry made out of recycled paper and old magazine covers and almost count believe it! I’m a big fan of organic beauty products so I was delighted to find a variety of natural and organic range of haircare and cosmetics here, at the Change Initiative.

Could’nt get over the amazing handmade furniture, made completely out of recycled materials- so stylish and futuristic! Add to that, this striking blue wine glass caught my eye and only after a few minutes I realized it was actually made from the top of a wine bottle! Totally cool!

We come across people talking about being environment friendly but rarely do we find them actually doing something towards the cause. The Change Initiative really got me thinking if I’m doing my bit to reduce my carbon footprint or atleast in some small way, contributing to the conserve the planet- Sadly, I realized I didn’t! Now, thanks to such concept stores, it’ll be easier for people who atleast have their heart in the right place, to contribute by choosing the products that make a real difference. We sure need more places like the Change Initiative!
