Green Collections Grow at NY Now
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-An expanding range of "green" home and lifestyle resources will be highlighted through the SustainAbility: design for a better world program at the winter 2014 edition of NY Now. This initiative includes a juried product display, eco-friendly product design awards and an educational session addressing sustainable and socially-responsible product design.
The SustainAbility display will feature some 120 products from 70 NY NOW exhibitors which were selected for meeting established criteria, including the use of eco-friendly products and production processes, as well as socially responsible, philanthropic or fair-trade oriented business practices. The display also will include products from Artisan Resource, a GLM-managed tradeshow matching artisanal craft producers and production resources with U.S.-based volume importers, direct import retailers and wholesalers, which runs concurrently with NY Now.
