Gift Fair ups eco-focus with SustainAbility
November 7, 2008,
White Plains, N.Y. – The third edition of “SustainAbility: design for a better world” is slated for the New York International Gift Fair, Jan. 25-29 at the Javits Center and Piers.
“NYIGF’s continued commitment to sustainable products and processes – through both display and education – mirrors the growth and importance of this issue to our industry and to society at large,” said Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF svp and director.
“Notable trends this cycle include an increase in international and Fair Trade products, as well as items produced in underdeveloped communities,” said SustainAbility exhibit curator Ilene Shaw of Shaw + Co! Productions. “The exhibit also will feature more recycled papers and stationery companies, more 100% organic fabrics and soft goods and lots of reusable totes in a variety of styles.”
The complete program is available at www.nyigf.com/programs. Seminars cost $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
