Green Shopping In Tel Aviv
One of my favorite things to do when I travel to new cities is check out their green shopping scenes. I was recently in the Tel Aviv/Jaffa region of Israel and had a few hours to visit the area shops and outdoor parks. Hasadna , a shop I particularly liked in the flea market section of Jaffa, was recommended to me by the tourism information shop on Ben Yehuda and Gordon Streets. Hasadna, is Hebrew for "workshop" and the store definitely has a DIY feel. All of their products are produced locally in Israel, most of the products are recycled, and many are made in part by people from "Green Hands"- a rehabilitation center for people with special needs.
