|4 Exhibitors to be Honored for Sustainability and Social Responsibility at Las Vegas Winter Market
The Global Goodness Awards recognize companies who have incorporated sustainable and socially responsible practices into the manufacturing of their products. Entries will be accepted through Dec. 1, 2018. One company in each of the Market’s major categories – furniture, home décor and gift – and an additional People’s Choice Award will be selected as winners and announced at 2019 Las Vegas Winter Market, running Jan. 27 – Jan. 31, 2019.
A panel of three industry sustainability and social responsibility experts – Colvin English of ByHand Consulting, Maud Obe of Aid to Artisans and Susan Inglis of Sustainable Furnishings Council – will review each entry and select one winner from the furniture, home décor and gift categories. A fourth People’s Choice Award nominee will be determined through popular vote on the Las Vegas Market Facebook page (www.facebook.com/lvmarket).
The Global Goodness Awards program complements an ongoing partnership Las Vegas Market has with the Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC) to create One Good World, a guide to sustainable furniture and home décor products to help connect legitimate suppliers and retailers in this new era of sustainability and accountability. The effort includes a sustainable products locator program showcasing relevant at-Market resources and expanded educational offerings addressing issues and opportunities connected with sustainability.
