CHOOSE – Singapore’s first eco-store

Posted on: September 22, 2009

Earlier on i did write a post regarding my cousin Yiqi who has set up  Choose , Singapore’s first eco-store with his friend Stuart.

They were also featured on greenkampong.com & Lianhe Zaobao Sunday.

So on monday (Hari Raya Puasa public holiday), i went to Yiqi’s shop with my parents to take a look. My 小姑 & her hubby also came to join us later =)

The interior of the shop. Simple layout but everything is arranged neatly & displayed accordingly to different categories.

My brother was telling me about this after he came back from Yiqi’s shop. This seems really good! Worth trying =) 

We were joking that we can perhaps start a laundry shop using this product! Hee….

And there’s more!

All these are made by a community project that reuse pallet packaging materials.

Since my dad got a bag for me, i decide to get a baby romper that’s made with 100% organic cotton for Magdelene’s baby boy Sean =)  His baby shower’s party is coming soon so it be a perfect gift!
