“Green It” Shop Brings Green Urban Living to Tel Aviv

"green store israel"

Green It is Tel Aviv’s new one-stop-shop for green urban living.

As the ecological movement becomes mainstream, more and more businesses cater to the green lifestyle.  We’ve seen this trend develop in the Middle East, with eco-friendly shops popping up in Beirut, fair trade shops in Masdar City, and even specialty stores focusing on one green product – such as organic clothes for babies.  Earlier this month another green shop – called Green It in Tel Aviv – joined the ranks of those other stores with products that it suggests people use for green urban living.  It describes itself as “the first store in Israel offering the best, newest and most advanced eco friendly products available”, and these products range from design, kitchenware, toys, children’s clothing and office supplies to electronics, literature, pharmaceuticals and textiles, too.

"ecological picnic set"Green It was opened by a couple, Tali and Gil Globus, who were having their own difficulty finding eco-friendly products in Israel and so decided to open a store where green urbanites could find everything they needed.  And at a reasonable price.  The products sold at their shop are not only friendly for the environment, but for your wallet as well.

The ecological picnic set, pictured above, was one of the products marketed by the shop for the Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) holiday.  It includes biodegradable utensils for up to 25 people, biodegradable sandwich and trash bags, and organic wine – all packaged in a designed burlap bag.

"hemp dog bed"And in case your puppy gets jealous, Green It also stocks “Harry Barker” products – a line of eco-friendly doggie items made from hemp, bamboo, recycled plastic and biodegradable bags (for picking up after your dog).  Check out the hemp dog beds and chew toys above.

Green It‘s products are both local and imported, and come in a very wide range.

  1. I still don’t see how shops like this can sustain business. I do give them credit for taking the risk, though.

      There’a alot of products made with hemp, which are actually cheaper than the big pharmaceuticals, and better as well. Once I know this as a consumer, then I buy these products every month. So it’s a matter of educating the public.
