Puma Opens World’s First “Sustainable Store” in India

Discarded DVD players, castoff bicycles, and filtered lake silt are among the unconventional materials that make up Puma’s first-ever “sustainable store,” one that the activewear giant hails as a revolution in the concept of retail spaces. Opened in a suburb in Bangalore, India on Thursday, the 8,600-square-foot building features a highly insulated shell that allows for cooling without air-conditioning. In addition to recessed ceilings, which facilitate the “stack effect” for natural cooling, an underground heat-sink system maintains temperatures at a constant 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit) throughout the year. To shield the building from direct heat from above, the store boasts a rooftop garden.
