Founded in 2004, Build It Green NYC claims to be the only NYC non-profit retail outlet that stocks salvaged and surplus building materials, in an effort to keep these items out of landfills. They offer large household appliances, lighting, flooring, windows, cabinets, and much more, at half the original sale price. All proceeds benefit the the Community Environmental Center’s environmental education programs. In 2011, BIG!NYC opened it’s second reuse center in NYC in Gowanus (69 9th Street, Brooklyn NY 11215). Shop 40-80% off used materials, donate your old kitchen cabinets (& other items!), or learn about how we can help remove your unwanted items during your home renovation with our free deconstruction services.

What is not to like about this place? If you love making things (I mean big things, tables, bookshelves, houses) this is the place for you. The wood here is amazing — culled from old NYC buildings — and though you never know what you are going to find you are sure to come across a treasure. My boyfriend and I built a 9 foot by 9 foot bookshelf for $26! Who can beat that?!
