World's First Eco-Educational Pop Up Shop
BoHo Bodega, the world’s first pop up shop focused on bringing easily accessible environmentally-sound products to consumers, is open for five days starting this morning in New York City.
This temporary bodega-style store is based on New York’s SoHo/NoLita border, offering the foods, beverages and household products found in typical bodegas across New York City, yet all with an eco-focus. In addition, goods will be offered at a greatly reduced price to encourage shoppers who believe green is beyond their budget to try healthier, eco-friendly alternatives to regular purchases. Goods in-store have been donated by eco-conscious brands including Vita Coco, Green Forest, Organic India, Planet Inc, Kiss My Face, Simply Organic and Sambazon, and proceeds will benefit Council on the Environment of NYC (Greenmarket, Recycling, Community Gardens, Education...).
