A green pop-up shop in New York City could be the world's largest exhibit space of eco-manufacturers and products of its kind.

The Green Up Shop, a boutique and event space, is a joint production by upcycle manufacturer Terracycle, the Fashion Center Business Improvement District, the Port Authority of NY and NJ, and the Times Square Alliance. Aside from creating a footprint-friendly store, these partners also offer a weekly list of eco-minded events at the space, such as film screenings, lectures and fitness classes.

Originally, the Green Up Shop opened for the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, and the shop was to end its run on May 1st. Luckily for the eco-inclined, the store's midtown existence is now extended through May 21.

Here's a rundown of some of the products and manufacturers at the site:
