Shop Your Values Week Asks NYers To Think Before They Buy
Event highlights local businesses that support sustainable and ethical practices.
Shop Your Values Week, a week encouraging shoppers to support local businesses that offer sustainable and ethical products and services, started this week and will run through May 10th.
Over 200 businesses have signed up to participate in the week long event, and will offer shoppers who have taken the Shop Your Values Pledge incentives for participating. Incentives include offers like 10% off at Good Beer, an east-village bar that uses grass fed meats, purchases energy from an alternative source, and uses local ingredients and 15% off at By Brooklyn, a fine-goods shop that celebrates artisanal talents of local Brooklynites and uses organic, fair trade, and recycled products.
