WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.–New, green products in several lifestyle categories—from personal accessories to tabletop and juvenile products—will be displayed at the New York International Gift Fair with the return of the SustainAbility: design for a better world initiative. This program, now in its fifth year, features a juried exhibit of sustainable gift, home and lifestyle products, the Eco Choice Awards recognizing product innovation, and a seminar series addressing sustainability and socially-responsible business practices.
The summer 2012 SustainAbility display will feature 165 products from 70 companies. Products and companies were screened to meet the criteria of utilizing eco-friendly products and production processes, and following socially responsible, philanthropic or fair-trade oriented business practices. The exhibit will be presented August 18-21, in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center’s North Connector.
