Retail Reuse Recycle
Report of a lovely sounding new green living at home store - Green Depot - in New York over at PSFK
ps on a completely different tip I see Microsoft have just announced they will open a retail chain too. There was a rumour last year they were negotiating for this listed building bank site in Brooklyn (the image is an artists impression of what the result could look like). Turning old banks into useful retail/living spaces could of course be a whole new trend in architecture & retrofit can be a very green model for a start.
Microsoft just hired a senior Walmart executive, I hope they plan to bring over the Walmart sustainability focus too. Apple got low marks yet again in the new climate counts report, so maybe this really could be for Microsoft to pick up and run with? :J
