Design > Green Up Shop
project: Green Up Shop pop-up shop
location: Times Square, New York City
description: The Green Up Shop was created by TerraCycle. It was a collective of local eco-businesses as a way to showcase sustainable products over Earth Day 2010. All of the products in the shop were created from recycled or upcycled materials. All of the furnishingings in the shop reflected that style, too.
Old doors were propped up on fire extinguishers and trash cans to become tables. A living wall was installed in the front window. Upcycled fashion made from candy wrappers and drink pouches were showcased in the front windows.
design note: The Green Up Shop hosted weekly eco-events. We had TV screenings, guest speakers, and a fun do-it-yourself Scraptacular. We know how to have good, clean, trash-inspired fun!
