WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-Once again, SustainAbility: design for a better world will be part of the New York International Gift Fair's winter edition.

GLM, owner and manager of the Gift Fair, said SustainAbility will be "a multifaceted program," incorporating nearly 200 "green" gift, home and lifestyle products from 85 companies throughout the world in its juried exhibit. It will include the Eco Choice Awards recognizing eco-product innovation, and will offer an educational series that will address issues in sustainability and fair-trade practices.

According to GLM, the selection criteria for the exhibit include eco-friendly products and production processes, and socially responsible, philanthropic or fair-trade business practices. The product categories represented in the exhibit include tableware, stationery, personal accessories, juvenile products and home decor. In addition, several products will receive NYIGF's "Degrees of SustainAbility" distinction, indicating exemplary earth-friendly production processes and materials.

SustainAbility will be located in the Jacob Javits Convention Center. The Gift Fair is scheduled for Jan. 29 through Feb. 3 at the Javits Center and Passenger Ship Terminal Piers 92 and 94, all in New York City.
