Bangalore, India is attracting a few green businesses these days, including Mahindra Reva EV manufacturer and Puma.
Just this month, Puma opened a 8,600-square-foot store that keeps cool without air conditioning, a rooftop garden, and enough solar power to generate about 10,384 kilowatt-hours a year. Even the interior has eco-friendly touches, like recycled wood and steel from old electronics and bicycles.
So, if you find yourself in southern India, be sure to drop in on the green buildings of Puma and Mahindra Reva.
