The Container City in Mexico is an eco-friendly community that was built entirely from shipping containers. The Container City is about two hours away from Mexico City and is made of about 50 shipping containers that serve as stores, restaurants, art galleries, as well as work and living spaces--basically everything you could find in a regular town.

The Container City in Mexico is open from Mondays to Saturdays 10am-8pm and on Sundays 11am-6pm.

Implications - The green movement is slowly gaining momentum with contemporary consumers, and businesses would be wise to incorporate eco-friendly designs in their products. This will appeal to the socially conscious individual and help improve the health of the planet at the same time.
