New York Bound: Earth Awards Press Release

"On January 12, 2009, ten of the world's most gifted young designers will convene in New York for The Earth Awards, a global search for products and concepts that are sustainable, innovative and — for many — essential to improving basic quality of life.

The evening will award a significant cash prize for the best new design, chosen by an esteemed, international Selection Committee, and will be presented before an audience of high profile environmentalists, venture capitalists, sustainable designers and media. Each design or concept was judged by its potential to sustain the planet and the people who inhabit it."

For more information about the Earth Awards, please contact Nadine Johnson at 212-228-5555 or

We will of course keep blogging during our time stateside so stay tuned for vital updates!

Meanwhile, we'll be staying at the Standard Hotel NY who have cunningly placed a webcam in a building opposite so take a peek for 24 hour views of life inside the hotel & the NY weather (we're expecting snow!)
