Eco Choice Award Winners
For the first time, all participants of the SustainAbility: design for a better world® product display were eligible for the Eco Choice Awards program. SustainAbility: design for a better world®attracts submissions from across all three collections – HOME, LIFESTYLE and HANDMADE – of NY NOW’s expansive market. Each entry undergoes a rigorous qualifying process before selection for participation in the display. The program’s strict qualifying standards were revised in early 2015 to recognize the increasing importance of eco-friendly production practices, with additional qualifications including products that are manufactured or constructed with only recycled, recyclable and/or sustainable materials and an emphasis on socially responsible and fair trade business practices.
