Three companies – Aladdin, a brand of PMI; Sobremesa Greenheart; and Xovivo – have received the 7th semi-annual Eco Choice Awards recognizing the most innovative and environmentally responsible gift, home, and lifestyle products at the winter 2013 New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF).

Online balloting determined winners of the Eco Choice Awards in three categories; Most Innovative, Most Sensitive Use of Materials, and Most Sellable.

The winners are:

  • Most Sellable – Aladdin, a brand of PMI, for its recycled Glass To-Go tumbler
  • Most Innovative – XOvivo Fashion Accessories for its men’s Cymbal Bracelet.
  • Most Sensitive Use of Materials – Sobremesa Greenheart for its coffee wood utensils.

“These companies share an admirable commitment to responsible product design,” said Christian Falkenberg, NYIGF director and GLM vice president. “Their products appealed to voters for their blend of green function and style.”

The traditional supermarket channel is maintaining its position as the dominant outlet for grocery purchases, according to the results of Progressive Grocer’s 68th Annual Consumer Expenditures Study.
