NY Now has announced that two Canadian companies and one Brooklyn-based company, Anointment Natural Skin Care, dconstruct Jewelry and Circa Asia, are winners of the 10th semi-annual Eco Choice Awards for Most Sellable, Most Innovative and Most Sensitive Use of Materials, respectively, at the summer 2014 trade show. The Eco Choice Awards are co-sponsored by NY Now and GreenRetailer Magazine, and winners are determined through online balloting, the company said.
“We’ve reached a milestone with the tenth edition of Eco-Choice Awards, but the demand for ‘green’ products shows no signs of fading,” Christian Falkenberg, NY Now director and senior vice president said. “NY Now attendees will be among the first to see these three winners, and hundreds of other new eco-friendly products, at the summer market.”
dconstruct Jewelry, from Winnipeg, MB, won Most Innovative for its Wild Silk Jewelry made of recycled resin and wild silk sourced from artisan communities in developing countries. Finalists in the category also included MSC Skin Care + Home and Creo.
Circa Asia from Novato, CA, won Most Sensitive Use of Materials for its Mango Wood Large Ribbed Serving Bowl made of food safe wood sourced from controlled, sustainable mango plantations. Runners up included Bella Notte Linens, Inc. and 80 Acres of McEvory Ranch.
