More good news for New Yorkers: Green Depot, the Brooklyn-based, eco-friendly building supply store is opening a new branch in the Bowery this February.
Green building strives to improve design and construction practices, so buildings built today will last longer, cost less to operate, and create healthier and more productive environments for workers and residents.
With new challenges such as rising energy costs, the potential health risks of traditional building practices, and a new awareness of damage to our planet, the demand for cleaner, greener building supplies has grown.
The new store will offer a variety of services and supplies for homeowners and professionals including New York’s first and only zero-VOC paint bar, a section for new mothers and children, and a resource and design center where staff will work with customers to integrate green building materials into their projects.
The new location at Bowery between Prince and Spring St. will be the store's sixth location. So, if you're doing renovations around the house you might want to skip that other Depot and check this one out. Opening day is February 12th!
