Pune is a hub for start-ups and also follows the vision of #GoLocal. People nowadays are very fond of sustainable and eco-friendly products. Remember those school projects - 'best out of waste'? We as individuals also recycle clothes. For example, we make bags from jeans or lehenga out of an old saree. It's good to recycle things and create something beautiful and usable. Here are a few brands that I came across which focus on making sustainable products.
