Sustain+ability in Products at NY Now

Sustainability and Wellness in products seemed to be on the rise at this weeks NY Now Show at the Javitz Center. Many artisan inspired brands that are new to market were showcasing various beauty, wellness and food related products. Companies had to submit their brand statements and prove that their products were sustainable in order to showcase their brand at NY Now!

The passion behind these products and the artisan-ship in creating beautiful brand stories made my daily 10k steps worth every move! Oh…and the buddahbooth…quiet space for noisy places…was pretty cool cause you got to zone out most of the surrounding chaos!

Just a few products that sustained my attention…but honestly they all did. Happy to see a bigger shift towards companies caring about their carbon footprint and our planets future🌍

GREEN HOME

Green Home, it’s NOT a trend, it should be our lifestyle regarding the future of our planet! Returning from an overseas business trip visiting 3 amazing cities, Oslo, Amsterdam and Paris..the message is clear-it’s the universal language among us all….SUSTAINABILITY

Interesting to see that the busiest stores at retail and booths at trade shows all had a clear and transparent message about their products-upcycled, recycled and organic(when possible) with a social message of giving back to the community that they are working with.

We all need to wake up and realize that consumers are buying less, being more cautious about what they are buying and where these products are produced. If we look inward and collaborate as a society we can all work towards our “Green Home”.

a concept store shopping sensation, housed in an reconfigured 19th century three floor loft-like fabric factory selling furniture, jewelry, stationary, fashion and household products. This season their blatant message is “Green Home” selling mainly upcycled products, organic when possible. In a move that takes the trend for retailer responsibility to a new level, this general store gives all profits to charity🌎 #greenhome
