BF+DA, 2017 Positive Impact Award

The third annual Positive Impact Awards were held last Thursday, November 9th in Williamsburg Brooklyn at the BF+DA studio. The well-attended event attracted over 1,000 registrants from all over New York! The main attraction of the evening were the star-studded award honorees: Mara Hoffman (Brand Leadership in Advancing Sustainability,) Target (Industry Leadership in Advancing Supply Chains,) River Blue (Best Documentary Film,) Alabama Chanin (Preserving Heritage & Craft Award,) and our friends/fellow BF+DA residents & venture fellows, Kirrin Finch (Entrepreneur of the Year!) Congratulations to all the winners – we loved meeting you and thank you so much for all your wonderful work!

GRAMMAR’s booth was a-popping for much of the evening, thanks in large part to you! We loved chatting with the other ethical brands that stopped by, Lady Farmer, Vestment, Makers Finders, Earthen Warrior, and many more! We thoroughly enjoyed sharing about GRAMMAR’s sustainable mission, 100% organic cotton fabric and local New York City manufacturing. Our five ‘perfect white shirts’ were on display as were our ethically-made tote bags complete with GRAMMAR’s logo. We were delighted to find that similarly to the Pop-Up Shop, the popular purchases of the evening were the unique and dramatic slits of the Dangling Modifier, and the total babe-ly yet professional, Conjunction.

Thank you once again to everyone that stopped by our booth! It was wonderful meeting you and we hope to see you again soon!
