Green Festival 2013
Posted: Nov 07 2013
4.22.13 Marlandia is thrilled to have taken part in the 2nd annual New York City Green Festival! Two days of incredible eco- innovations, cool speakers like Carmen Artigas from FIT and Theresa Vandermeer of Work + Shelter, organic foods, and of course, eco-fashion. We met tons of people, debuted new products by Retalhos Cariocas soon to appear on this site, and had a great time.
The NYC Green Festival is a long time in coming and is a great event to connect with the community. Often, and especially in the fashion world, we tend to toil in relative isolation on the details and nuances of our visions and businesses. The Green Festivals in all cities are a wonderful opportunity to not only introduce products and concepts directly to consumers, but also for vendors in the eco space to meet others putting their dreams of a sustainable future into physical form.
