Shop Your Values Week Starts Today Citywide
The hashtagged, Shepard Fairey-inspired posters started appearing on plywood across the Lower East Side roughly two weeks ago, advertising #SYVW. Then, within the last few days, out came the sidewalk stencils in front of different neighborhood stores. The grassroots marketing is for the Shop Your Values Week initiative.

Shop Your Values Week is an effort to “help conscientious consumers shop at ethical and sustainable local businesses in New York.” The week-long event, which begins today, will highlight stores that “support employees, are environmentally responsible and engage with the community.”
