The Puebco pop-up at Stackt Market, the shipping container market at Bathurst and Front streets, is chock-full of sustainable lifestyle items created from recycled and found objects. The collection — also available online at puebco.ca — features everything from industrial-inspired homewares to practical camping gear.

A look inside the packed shipping container store.

Like Muji, this home and lifestyle brand aims to fill every gap in your life, from slippers to picture frames to tissue boxes. But, thanks to its unmistakable branding and use of up-cycled materials, you won’t ever confuse the two.
