   EVENT DETAILS

The No Parking sign staring you in the face, the food processor with 28 attachments you will never use, the public urinal in the city bus stand, the clay diyas you are buying this Diwali, design is a part of everything we see, use, consume and experience on an everyday basis. And Design Matters.Creators today are thinking about the entire lifecycle of things.

While there is a growing consciousness about consuming natural, local, handmade, cruelty-free, recycled, chemical-free and fair trade products, producers are also thinking about creating lasting value for the community. They are asking fundamental questions such as how does one extend the use-phase of a product? how can spaces and cities be inclusive in their design? how can one minimize packaging and prevent it from going to the landfill post use? and how does one make sure that the proceeds of sale are distributed fairly among workers?

Consumers are interested in buying these products, services, spaces and experiences that put design at the centre. Be it the Bangalore based delivery service that only uses cycles, the Chennai firm making chemical-free detergent so the water used for washing can be reused to water the plants, the furniture company that packages their goods using lesser space and recycled material, or offices that insist employees use both sides of the paper to print, people are rewarding those who think deeply about the design, reusability, shelf life and supply chain of things.

And we, at The Green Bazaar 8 – Design Matters edition will celebrate the spirit of these entrepreneurs, designers, students, artists, thinkers and citizens, this November. Come be a part of this unique 2 day weekend extravaganza. Through the day, you can shop for sustainably designed products as part of our curated Bazaar and buy fresh organic produce, from local farms, in the Farmers Market section.

There will be workshops for adults on everything from furniture making, to home-gardening and inspiring talks by thought leaders on Design for Sustainability. Activities for children like storytelling, nature walks, waste to wow contests, live music, performances, great eats and more ensure that, this 8th Edition too, The Green Bazaar 8 – Design Matters will bring back the family friendly, sunny, fun feeling it has come to be known for.

Venue: RBANMS High School Grounds, Ulsoor Bangalore

Nov 22 – 3 pm to 8 pm and Nov 23 – 10 am to 7 pm
