Congratulations to Sustainable NYC, winner of the 2011 People's Choice Award for Green Business of the Year.
Sustainable NYC is he greenest general store you can find in New York City. "Sustainable NYC is more than a store, it is more like a community center," wrote Green American Lynn Tiede, in her nomination of the store for the award. "They are a wonderful supporter of my school and environmental clubs, as well as a fully green business selling sustainable and locally made products." What's more, the store itself is super eco-friendly, built from 300-year-old reclaimed lumber from New York City buildings, and with a solar-powered outdoor sign.
