The gigantic space, located on the 3/F, features everything from pro-planet fashion to natural skincare to plants to everyday items, such as toothbrushes made from bamboo, toxic-free household products, Super Bee Wax kitchenware and single-use cutlery made from corn. You will be encouraged to ditch the plastic when you see these adorable items, which all help in decreasing unnecessary waste and your carbon footprint.
The retail hub also hosts fun group activities the whole year round. Expect sustainable talks, craft workshops, classes on plant care and even something for your kids.
Five to Try
With more than 300 brands to browse through at Ecotopia, switching from mainstream products to more sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives has never been this easy. Here are five products to start out with.
Upcycled Tote Bags and Wallets, Sackitem
If you think fashion and sustainability are worlds apart, think again. Owned by Thanarak ‘First’ Worarithanont, Sackitem’s upcycled tote bags and wallets are so design-forward that you wouldn’t think they were made from old concrete sacks, which are actually very durable. We suggest sparing some time to choose which one you like best as each piece’s pattern is unique and different. These totes don’t only make you feel good helping save the planet, they also easily pair with any outfit and keep you looking on point.
Rosemary Cleansing Water, Pasutara
Poramin Watnakornbancha, the man behind Ratchaburi-based organic skincare brand Pasutara and co-founder of household cleaning brand Ali, is doing his bit to ignite the green lifestyle. Pasutara’s star product is its Rosemary Cleansing Water, which works wonderfully to remove all traces of makeup. This super gentle and non-irritating cleanser is made with homegrown rosemary and toxin-free ingredients (no SLS, SLEs, silicone, parabens and perfume).
Xiaomi Tiny Green Mini-farm
Busy urbanites who dream of growing an herb garden will appreciate this cool device. Meant for easier hydroponic planting, the Xiaomi Tiny Green Mini-farm comes with a smart sensor that can measure temperature, light, soil moisture, fertilizer levels and air ventilation. All you need is a little work and a lot of love.
Mosquito Repellent, MosZero
Mosquitoes are not just pesky little critters; they can be carriers of deadly diseases, too. This mosquito repellent has become a favorite among families as its formula is safe for the little ones. Using an ultrasonic humidifying system, it vaporizes Thai herbs that are known to naturally repel insects and mosquitoes, and are guaranteed safe by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health.
If you’re trying to break the cycle of consumerism and waste, you’ll be happy to know that Ecotopia has a wide range of bulk-buy products. The bulk refill station displays brands like Hug, a botanical brand (free of SLS, SLES, parabens, silicone and artificial color) that stocks household cleaning products and personal products like dishwashing liquid, bathroom cleaner and shampoo, and Lhamour, a Mongolian beauty brand known for its its cold-pressed seabuckthorn oil — devotees say it makes their skin softer and smoother. Just make sure to bring your containers to fill up.
