The nation’s largest environmentally friendly living event will kick off its 12th year as the Green Festival rolls through New York City for the second time. The Green Festival will launch its first New York City business-to-business Green Trade Day on Friday, April 19 from 3-7 p.m. at Javits Center North, the event organizers have announced.
The afternoon will give retail and wholesale buyers an opportunity to conduct business with Green Festival exhibitors before they open for consumers.
Slated for the LEED-certified North Pavilion of the Jacob Javits Center, the Green Festival is the only environmentally focused event that screens exhibitors for their commitment to sustainability, ecological balance and social justice.
Exhibitor merits are weighed using co-producer, Green America’s business standards, according to event organizers.
A unique marketplace of more than 300 eco-friendly businesses acts as a center point for the show.
