SustainAbility Returns to NY Gift Fair

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.
