According to New York Magazine, the Bowery outpost of eco-friendly building supplies store Green Depot will open Feburary 2nd. "The Bowery store is the first consumer-friendly location for the Brooklyn-based company; previous outlets have catered more to renovators and contractors than to browsers and DIYers. There will be a cleaning-product station with private-label cleaners sold by the ounce, a lighting booth for comparing and contrasting bulbs pre-purchase, and a help desk manned by a design professional to translate any building specs into green alternatives."
