PUMA opens environment-friendly solar powered store in India
PUMA seems to have taken a solemn oath of going green and to begin with, the company has just flung open the doors of its greenest store in India. Located in Indiranagar, a suburb in Bangalore, this store spread over 800sqmeters sports a bunch of energy-efficient and eco-friendly elements and includes space for a retail area and a ‘PUMA Social Club’ cafe and bar. For its construction, the store has made use of recycled steel obtained from old DVD players, bicycles and lunch boxes and uses natural lighting to illuminate nearly 90% of store-space. That apart, this green store is 100% solar powered using photovoltaic cells generating nearly 10,384 kwh units annually and makes use of higher insulation levels, decreasing the need for air-conditioning.
