TerraCycle’s ‘Green Up Shop’ Opens Today
This innovative store will feature TerraCycle’s full line of over 100 products literally made from common waste materials such as chip bags, food wrappers, yogurt cups, glue bottles and writing instruments.
In addition to selling its affordable, fun products made from waste, TerraCycle will use the space to collect over 30 different non-recyclable items, turning the store into the world’s largest upcycling center. Consumers who drop off waste will be given a discount on the products they purchase at the Shop.
Other goods from friends of TerraCycle will also be available for purchase at the Shop. Find furniture, yoga mats, jewelry, fashion and more. There will also be plenty of fun events taking place throughout the Shop’s tenure in the space, including DIY sessions with Etsy and Generation T, lectures, workout sessions and more. Be sure to check the full events listing for details.
The Green Up Shop will run through May and hold hours Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
