Lebanon will have its first eco-friendly mall in December! Located in Antelias, Eco101 is a brand new concept that fosters entertainment and environmental sustainability at the same time! Eco101 is eco-friendly because of its landscaping. Also, it uses solar panels and reuses rainwater for cleaning and irrigation. The Founder Elie Massoud came up with the concept of Eco101 when he realized how high the retail prices are for startups and newly opened restaurants.

In fact, the retail section of Eco101 is made up of containers! This mall will consist of two floors: the first one contains the retail section while the second one comprises restaurants and cafes. Entertainment is guaranteed! You will find there:
