Las Vegas Market named four exhibitors as winners of the Global Goodness Awards, which honor furniture, home decor and gift companies for “environmentally friendly, sustainable and socially responsible activities.” This year’s winners include furniture winner Anji Mountain, home decor winners The Cottage Potters, gift winner Dunitz & Company and People’s Choice winner Quilling Card.
For each rug that Anji Mountain sells, the company partners with Trees for the Future to plant one tree in an in-need East or West African community.
The winners were chosen by a panel of experts including Colvin English of ByHand Consulting, Susan Inglis of the Sustainable Furnishings Council and Carol MacNulty of Aid to Artisans. The People’s Choice honor was determined by popular voting on the Las Vegas Market Facebook page.
“Las Vegas Market is pleased to recognize companies whose production and business practices are making positive impacts not only on the industry, but also to communities around the world in the course of sourcing and manufacturing their products,” says Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift Leasing and chief marketing officer, International Market Centers. “As the leading furniture, home decor and gift destination in the western United States, Las Vegas Market is proud to support these corporate ‘good citizens’ who are dedicated to are doing well by doing good.”
