NY Now to Present "Green" Programs
July 14, 2014,
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-Next month's NY Now will see the return of Degrees of SustainAbility and the Eco Choice Awards, two programs that will highlight socially responsible and eco-friendly products which are displayed in the show's SustainAbility: design for a better world exhibit.
Degrees of SustainAbility outlines industry-specific criteria for identification of "green" products and producers, and uses a three-tiered rating--SustainAbility1 through SustainAbility3--to indicate the extent to which a product or manufacturer complies with these standards. Four companies who will exhibit at next month's show have been given the SustainAbility3 rank: Anointment Natural Skin Care for its certified organic skin and body-care products; Ecojot for its "app ready" notebooks made of 100 percent recycled paper and board; 80 Acres of McEvoy Ranch for its Cedar Olive Oil collection including soap, salt scrub and body balm made with organic essential oils; and Marianne's Solmate Socks for its adult and children's lines of socks made from recycled cotton yarns.
