40 Via Fontanella Borghese, Rome, 00186, Italy

This sustainable retail effort is fueled by designer Ilaria Venturini Fendi of the famed fashion family. The store, which looks more like a series of art installations and less like a retailer, sells eco-friendly bags, accessories, furniture, and home goods made entirely out of repurposed, recycled goods. There's jewelry made from oil filters and bags crafted from garden umbrellas; plus, almost all of the items are made by skilled Italian artisans (Fendi has a small UN-led project creating a line with African artists). Some accessories also benefit charitable causes. Retail karma doesn't come cheap, though: most bags cost £500 and up.
