BEST INDEPENDENT ECO GENERAL STORE

Sustainable NYC

This charming little store at 139 Avenue A is pretty much a one-stop
shopping spot for environmentally friendly products — it sort of
has the charm of an old-school general store, with all sorts of random,
interesting stuff to look at (there’s even a tiny café with
delicious snacks, including a great cup of organic Catskill Mountain
coffee). From eco flip-flops to hybrid solar-powered chargers to
cleaning products to eco-chocolate, you don’t have to check the labels
on anything (though you always should, as it helps to know stuff). Go
there, spend your money, and go back again.

  • Time’s Up rocks! I personally volunteer with this group and it’s amazing how much they get done with only volunteers and a very small budget. You can truly see the positive changes all over the city. Time’s Up definitely deserves this award after all of it’s long hard work and it’s nice to see they are finally being recognized. Thank you Time’s Up for making my New York City a more environmentally friendly place.
