Sustainability-In-Action: Sustainable NYC has reduced the number of lights in the store, installed CFL bulbs and low flow faucets and water-saving toilet flappers, weatherized the storefront, uses a hand dryer in the customer bathroom and towels in the staff bathroom, powers their sign with a solar panel, increased their reuse and recycling programs, joined the ConEdison Solutions Wind Power Program, used eco-friendly paints and materials to build their space, and buys from local, organic, and socially responsible vendors.
Sustainability Goals: Sustainable NYC plans to install a canopy to shield the storefront from the sun. They are also looking into installing automatic light controls such as motion sensors to further reduce electricity use, installing a programmable thermostat, offsetting all shipping and transportation emissions, and composting in a worm bin.
