|Sustainable-NYC is located in the East Village|
shop/café, Sustainable-NYC has matured from a funky lair of recycled gifts into a full-service general store of eco-friendly home and personal goods. The store has also expanded its café, offering additional seating, a gallery wall featuring rotating exhibits, free wifi, nostalgic tabletops made from vinyl records, and a limited menu.
With many items priced under $25, Sustainable-NYC remains a local’s paradise for scoring cool housewarming and shower gifts, readying for your next black-out party, finding the perfect spring/summer accessories, or grabbing a fair-trade coffee and gluten-free dessert. It’s hip, happy, and homemade (and a nice dwelling place for former hippies).
Those seeking an unusual gift — or at least one that starts a conversation — wouldn’t be disappointed with the selection, either. From organic clothing and eco-minded hostess and professional gifts, to fun accessories recycled from everything from candy wrappers to aluminum pull tops, Sustainable-NYC remains on the forefront of everything repurposed. With vinyl signs turned into messenger bags, welded keys into trivets, pencil stubs into picture frames, plus lines from popular eco-minded brands like Mighty Wallets and Tom’s Footwear, this downtown boutique is a green shopper's destination.
Newly expanded departments offer a wider selection of baby items and health/beauty products including nursery goods, blankets and clothing, plus a vast skincare line. There’s even a small selection of garden tools, seeds, and “gifts that grow” like grow-your-own herb kits and bulbs for planting.
