Eco-Friendly Expo At 7 West York
7 W New York® will host The Eco-Friendly Expo, showcasing the best in high-end design, architecture, transportation, travel, art and fashion. The Expo is devoted to bringing green to a grand new level, with over 50 exhibitors on board for the boutique style marketplace including El Museo del Barrio, Decorazon Gallery, Kohler, Cosmos Communications, The Architect’s Newspaper, Bath Fitters, Siw Thai Silk, Green Mountain Energy, Juan Valdez Coffee, and Recycle-A-Bicycle (recycleabicycle.org). The upscale cross-industry event will take place May 25-27 on the 11th floor venue space at 7 W 34th Street.
Geared towards creating partnerships for environmental projects, business and education, the Expo will provide a showcase for investment opportunities while stimulating environmental exposure by promoting the value of green thinking. It will highlight New York’s environmental leadership and its commitment to the global community by supporting industries of the future and the US economy.
In keeping with its role as an NYC event venue par excellence, 7 W New York is particularly pleased to feature this timely and environmentally conscious show. The 7 W tenants will have their own booth on the exhibit floor, with a specially curated selection of eco-friendly products from 7 W suites.
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg applauds The Eco-Friendly Expo for its efforts: “The small steps we take on a daily basis add up to great strides in making New York the greenest big city in America, and I commend everyone involved with the Eco-Friendly Expo for enabling New York’s residents and businesses to live environmentally-friendly lives […]. On behalf of the City of New York, please accept my best wishes for an enjoyable event and continued success!”
The Expo is expected to attract eco-enthusiasts, trade professionals and public and private sector buyers and will include numerous demonstrations, interactive sessions and The Power of Green lecture series. Speakers for the series include Adam Freed, from the Bloomberg Administration; Robert Ferry and Elizabeth Monoian from The Land Art Generator Initiative; Ben Jervey, author of The Green Apple book; Julián Zugazagoitia, Director of El Museo del Barrio NYC; and Elizabeth Balkan from UNEP; among others.
In lieu of an attendee badge system, reusable tickets will be made out of Mr. Ellie Pooh’s 100% recycled paper. Ellie Pooh’s products are composed of 75% elephant dung, 25% post consumer paper and are handmade, acid free and organic. Eco Friendly Expo will also use a pre-designed floor plan used by another fair and will offset its entire carbon foot print by donating $1 from each paid ticket to Carbonfund.org http://Carbonfund.org
Media partners for the Expo include CNN, The Architect’s Newspaper, Organic & Wellness News, Green Drinks NY and Art Nexus.
