The Global Citizen Pop-Up Shop

In collaboration with Conscious Commerce we created the this year's Global Citizen Pop-Up Shop. Located at The Paramount Hotel, at 235 W. 46th, the Pop-Up is stocked with hand-picked products from conscious brands, including the #IMPACK. All proceeds from the sale of the #IMPACK go back to organizations that are leading the fight against extreme poverty. Stop by and visit us!
