EcoLife is a social enterprise that gives access to and sells healthy, low-cost and eco-friendly products within our target area. It promotes eco-conscious products that are conventionally unavailable in grocery stores of rural Tamil Nadu.
The EcoLife Store is located on AVAG premises and provides access to affordable eco-friendly technologies suitable for rural communities. The store began in 2009 after SHG members expressed interest in experimenting with earth-friendly products.
EcoLife still continues to expand its selection, now offering spirulina supplements, energy powder, CFL bulbs, activated EM, low-cost water filters, solar torches, solar lights, crank lights, solar mobile phone chargers and rocket stoves.
