NY Now has announced finalists for its two “Green” initiatives that highlight eco-friendly products from exhibitors. From nearly 125 products selected for NY Now’s “SustainAbility: design for a better world” exhibit, 30 have been named finalists in the 10th semi-annual Eco Choice Awards; and four companies selected for the display have achieved NY Now’s highest “Degrees of SustainAbility” status, SustainAbility3, the company noted.
“NY Now’s SustainAbility rankings highlight the most exceptional companies in terms of eco-friendly product design and socially-responsible business practices,” Christian Falkenberg, NY NOW director and svp said. “The Eco Choice Awards allows retailers to select their favorite ‘green’ products that will be showcased at NY Now this August.”
The four companies that have been designed the SustainAbility3 ranking in the Degrees of SustainAbility award are:
Anointment Natural Skin Care for its certified organic skin and body care products; Ecojot for its “app ready” notebooks made of 100% recycled paper and board; 80 Acres of McEvoy Ranch for its Cedar Olive Oil collection featuring 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.
Voting is still active for the three Eco Choice Awards. Ten finalists have been announced in three categories including Most Innovative, Most Sensitive Use of Materials, and Most Sellable.
