Free Organic Wine and Fair Trade, Vegan Chocolate Tonight at Sustainable NYC

Come to Sustainable NYC (139 Avenue A btw 8th & 9th Streets, 6-8pm, Wed. Feb 9th) for free organic wine and fair trade, vegan chocolates from Divine. Divine Chocolates are made with certified fair-trade ingredients-- not just the Ghanaian cocoa butter, but the sugar and vanilla too! Plus, the company is 45% owned by the farmers. Join us tonight in saying "no to slavery" and "yes to getting fat and drunk!" Here's a link to the FB event invitation, if you're into that sort of thing. Tell your friends!

Now, I will shamelessly plug the amazing store I am happy to be a part of: If you're looking for a unique gift for Valentine's Day or any other occasion, you can feel good about buying it at Sustainable NYC. It's not only great because I work there :-), it's also awesome because all the items in the shop have to comply with certain ethical standards. They are either made of organic, repurposed, or recycled materials. They make it easier for consumers to use less resources like energy and water. They're made by local NYC artists or international artisans earning a fair wage-- many of them by practicing a traditional handicraft that is in danger of lost.
