Siam Piwat opens Ecotopia, Asia’s first eco-lifestyle destination

Siam Piwat has unveiled Ecotopia in Bangkok, which it claims to be Asia’s first eco-lifestyle destination.

Located at Siam Discovery, the store occupies 2000sqm and features more than 300 brands of eco-friendly and health-oriented products. Ecotopia houses eight different zones.

A Hygienic zone offers a selection of household products made from natural and biodegradable materials, while the Zero Waste zone is a refillery where customers can take their own containers to refill everyday products or food items.

Air-purifying plants and gardening tools can be found in a Green zone, while a Healthy zone offers organic food and a Beautiful zone a selection of chemical-free skincare and personal-care products.

The Up-cycled zone displays products with renewed value through recycling, while a Stylish Zone features fashion items made from organic cotton and fabric scraps, and a clothing swap corner where pre-owned clothes can be exchanged for new garments.

Finally, a Kind Zone highlights local handicrafts made from natural materials that help generate incomes for local communities.

At Ecotopia, visitors can join regular eco-friendly workshops to learn how to turn waste into creative art or develop organic gardening skills.
