Bengaluru is the most conscious city when it comes to buying eco-friendly and sustainable products as compared to other metro cities in India, a new study revealed on Tuesday.

Mumbai is at the second spot followed by Delhi, Hyderabad and Chennai respectively.

Based on an analysis of the shopping behaviour of over 20,000 respondents, across five Indian metros, the study was conducted by Karnival.com — an eCommerce platform.

According to the study, 55 per cent of the shoppers on Karnival.com are millennials (23-37 age group) and Generation Z (18-22 age group).

“The maiden sustainability index by Karnival shows that Indians are working towards creating a culture of conscious consumption and making sustainability a mainstream way of life,” said Dhimant Parekh – CEO, Karnival.

“It’s heartening to know that young shoppers, in metros as well as non-metros, are looking for eco-friendly choices, whether for their own use or for gifting purposes,” Parekh said.

The study also indicated that more women were open to buying these products than men – the percentage was 65 per cent for women and 35 for men.

The most popular buys on the platform include water-saving devices for taps, home decor products made with upcycled and recycled materials, natural personal care products, organic food products, and eco-friendly home utilities like floor and laundry cleaners.

The study also found that tier 2 and tier 3 Indian cities are warming up to the idea of shopping for sustainable products.

Pune led the growing tribe of ‘green non-metros’, while Coimbatore, Lucknow and Ghaziabad completed the top chart, accounting for nearly 10 per cent of the total sales on Karnival.com during April-September 2019.

“An increasing number of Indians are seeking out green products and we are excited to be a part of this inspiring narrative on up-and-coming sustainability oriented cities and towns of India,” Parekh said. (IANS)

A Closer Look at Liverpool’s Exciting Baltic Triangle Sector

While Liverpool in general is one of the best places in the UK to invest, with comparatively affordable house prices (currently sitting at £174,232 according to Zoopla, as opposed to £644,215, for example, in London) and high average rental yields, the Baltic Triangle specifically is an outlier and opportunity for investors.

Birthplace of the Beatles and home to the current football Champions of Europe, Liverpool is a northern great of a city that has a ton of opportunity, and a constant hum of inspiring energy. In recent years, Liverpool’s energy has spilled out from the heart of the city centre and its surrounding streets, and now has branched out throughout the entirety of the area, no longer concentrated at its core.

Here’s a more specific look at the Baltic Triangle, one of the most popular and desirable pockets of the city at the moment.

Trendiest place to live

Often drawn in parallel with the likes of London’s Shoreditch, and at one point deemed ‘the coolest place to live in Britain’ by the Times, the Baltic Market has an abundance of bars, restaurants, and attractions, perfect for a city that is known for its nightlife. Here are some of the highlights:

 

  • A great place to start is the Baltic Market, a grand bazaar containing food stalls from some of the best and most diverse food spots in the city, complete with a bar and live music. This place is constantly packed, and perfect for friends who can’t decide where they want to go to eat.

 

 

  • Bongo’s Bingo is a must-visit attraction for a night out, situated in the Camp & Furnace restaurant across from Cain’s Brewery. It’s very different from your average bingo night, that’s for sure, with anything from rave intervals to dance-offs around the corner. Weird prizes are also on offer here, but whether you’ll want them or not is a different story.

 

 

  • Again situated in the heart of the area is Ghetto Golf, a fully indoor mini-golf course, decorated with snazzy neon lights and loud music. Again perfect for a night out with friends, the out-of-the-ordinary course has some ‘interesting’ hole choices and a fully-fledge cocktail bar.

 

Investment strong spot

While Liverpool in general is one of the best places in the UK to invest, with comparatively affordable house prices (currently sitting at £174,232 according to Zoopla, as opposed to £644,215, for example, in London) and high average rental yields, the Baltic Triangle specifically is an outlier and opportunity for investors. As a prime example, RWinvest are aiming to keep on top of the demand from tenants to live in the area, preparing high-quality buy-to-let apartments and housing at the centre of the area. There are even plans in motion for a £70m hotel, allowing more people to stay and enjoy the area.

Digital trendsetter

The Baltic Triangle is where many digital businesses call home, inhabiting the once unused warehouse buildings of yesterday and giving them a new purpose. These companies have not only thrived in recent years, cultivating an exciting sense of community in the city, but they are also contributing significantly to the city’s overall economy.

Additionally, while the area is already heavily populated by a large number of young business and professionals, the city’s makeup of creative and talented young people will also surely push it forward as developments continue. Many students living and working at the surrounding universities will no doubt want to continue to contribute upon graduation, and there are even schools such as The Studio situated on the doorstep of the Baltic Triangle, with programmes and skills aiming to give them all they need to make the most of the facilities nearby to them. For a young person looking to garner experience and digital skills, it’s an exciting place to be.
