New Yorkers, get ready – Fashion Week is steadily approaching. Whether you’re running to a show, snapping photos off the runway, or strolling the streets around 1 Hotel Central Park to spot the season’s newest trends, here are some eco-friendly tips to help you make it through, from clothes to coffee and beyond.

Keep your belongings together in a bag you can take to any event or occasion, that’s as fashionable as it is conscious of our planet. Freedom of Animals is a sustainable and vegan bag line, made with the highest quality materials to create sleek, versatile, and sophisticated pieces. 

Our favorite piece? The Melia Bag in navy – made of post consumer, eco-faux leather that has been vegetable dyed, with organic cotton lining.

Perfect your pout and flash the camera a smile. New York’s climate can get chilly and dry this time of year. Nourish your lips with a signature lip balm from Eco Lips. Choose from a variety of balms that are all vegan, organic, and made with herb extracts and specialty oils. 

Our pick is the Revive softening lip balm in Cocoa Vanilla Nut, for the perfect blend of sweet and soothing.

Skip the Styrofoam this fashion week. After you’ve had your morning latte at Jams at 1 Hotel Central Park, get your caffeine fix in a thermos that offers fashion and function. Opt for a Stanley travel mug to take your coffee with you around the city. Not only does it look sleek, but the mug is made from eCycle, a mix of recycled plastics that’s also completely recyclable. 

To minimize the use of plastic in your own life, look around your home and work to identify plastic items. From there, seek to find alternatives.
