Rehabbing your space into eco-friendly quarters just became easier for Manhattanites with last Thursday’s launch of the environmental homeware retailer Green Depot’s first New York outpost. The Bowery location offers green products perfect for those ready to revamp their new pad or thinking of retooling their household habits in an eco-conscious way. Those prepping to relocate can pick up a range of eco moving supplies like the plastic-free bubblewrap substitute Greenwrap or packing peanuts made of cornstarch and potato starch that disintegrate once you add water—makes for a biodegradable way to get rid of unwanted clutter post-move. For a more permanent touch, there are floor to ceiling options like EcoTimber flooring, bamboo countertops, and a no-VOC paint bar where you can custom match your wall shades. Those not willing to make the dive can start out with their biodegradable household cleaners, compost pails, and soy wax candles to ease themselves into greener living.
Once you have re-painted, re-tiled and re-modeled in an eco-friendly manner, why stop there? There are may places that supply you with the right item to furnish your new green pad with even greener items.
