Did you know? 2000 different chemicals, including formaldehyde, chlorine, lead, and mercury, are used in textile processing. Of these, over 1600 are used in dying processes, but only 16 are actually EPA-approved. These chemicals end up in global waterways, in our air, and on our skin.
By embracing and supporting companies that choose ethical production processes, transparency in the supply chain, and fair trade labor practices, we can begin to reverse the environmental and social impact of the fast-fashion industry.
The 1st Annual Eco-Chic Evening will be an amazing night featuring cocktails, a farm-to-table dinner, an eco-fashion runway show, and dancing! The professionally-produced runway show will showcase sustainable brands that are kind to the planet and people, and available locally.

Pound Ridge, NY 10576
The event will take place "Pondside" at the Pound Ridge Nursery where guests will mingle amongst the verdant views -- the perfect backdrop for the "earth-conscious" soiree, while enjoying local farm-fresh epicurean delights prepared by Purdy's Farmer and The Fish and entertainment by one of NYC's top DJ's to round out the fun. The "Sustainability Lounge" will be an interactive showcase of conscious brands and experiences available for sale with a portion of those proceeds going to funds being raised for the event.
Your support will go to creating a greener world, and specifically in the local Business District in Pound Ridge: electric car charging stations, increased beautification along the pollinator pathway, upgraded recycling, and more.
