Eco-Choice Awards for Spring 2014 By Poornima Apte

With the field of eligible candidates growing every time, the latest edition of the Eco Choice Awards recognized outstanding environmentally conscious products that stood out in a sea of stiff competition.

The ninth edition of the Eco Choice Awards had over 200 competitors, who were then narrowed down to just over 30 finalists for online balloting.

Neither severe weather nor the Superbowl could deter attendance at NY NOW where the winners were recognized at a special ceremony. The semi-annual Eco-Choice Awards are co-sponsored by NY Now and GREENRetailer magazine.

To qualify for the competition, products have to be part of the SustainAbility: design for a better world display.“As consumers become increasingly aware about green practices and products, it’s encouraging to see wholesalers step up and introduce eco-friendly winners that marry both form and function well. These winners have won deserved recognition for their commitment to green,” said Adrian Clapp, publisher of GIFT SHOP and GREENRetailer magazines.

“From an impressive field of nominees, these products most strongly resonated with voters for their blend of style and sustainability,” said Christian Falkenberg, NY NOW director and GLM senior vice president.
