NYC Food Waste Fair

NYC Food Waste Fair

JULY 25

A “soup to nuts” approach to food waste prevention, recovery and recycling.

New York City businesses throw away more than 650,000 tons of food waste annually—yet food scraps aren’t garbage. Instead, that food could be used to feed people and animals, nourish soil, grow healthy food, and create energy.

Businesses, investors and policymakers are eager to reduce their food waste footprint, and crave information about practical, tangible, shelf-ready solutions. By pairing an expo-style event with workshops, digital content and live demonstrations, the NYC Food Waste Fair will provide critical resources, and catalyze a growing industry.

The NYC Food Waste Fair will equip business owners and managers with the knowledge, tools and connections to build a waste prevention plan from scratch, or take existing programs to the next level. The exhibit hall will showcase dozens of vendors offering food waste prevention, recovery and recycling services. And workshops will provide information from city government officials on how to comply with laws and regulations, as well as tips from experts on how to achieve tangible, cost-effective results.

Selima Optique x Love is Mighty Vegan Pop Up Shop

JULY 17 -30

Love is Mighty is thrilled to invite you to its first ever NYC Pop Up Shop hosted by Mickey Boardman and Selima Optique!

The 100% vegan footwear and accessories brand is known for its exquisite handwork and artisanship, offering completely handmade items in an array of unique patterns. Love is Mighty is dedicated to creating an ethical and sustainable brand that supports local artists while also providing contemporary and fresh designs. Every item is meticulously handmade, meaning it is all completely unique!

The brand's founder, Monisha Raja, says that her "vision was to create a collection of footwear that is fashion forward, well crafted, and created from eco-friendly materials and harms no animals." Due to years and years of industrialization, many local Indian artisans are being forced to give up their passions to find better paying jobs. Raja writes, "thousands of years of Indian traditions are about to vanish." She set out to create a stylish brand that would preserve these traditions while also giving artists a way to support their families - and she has certainly achieved her goal!

You can find Love is Mighty Pop Up Shop at 7 Bond Street between July 17th and 23rd! Look out for popular styles like the Rani Flat or the Ocean Surf Tote, all handmade with Love, because Love is Mighty!

As seen in: Vogue IndiaMarie Clare and Marie Claire India, and Platform Magazine.
