The Style Line’s Favorite Conscious Discoveries in NYC
Rachel Schwartzmann, Founder of The Style Line, is bringing storytelling with style back to the web. "Inspired by the idea of transit, The Style Line is a resource built on movement and exploration" and so naturally we asked Rachel (who runs around NYC all day / everyday discovering the most incredible local stories) to take a moment to tell us about her favorite conscious discoveries in New York City.

Sustainability touches on so many aspects of our lives and for me, a lot of that has to do with maintaining a healthy physical lifestyle. So in addition to revamping my wardrobe to include more sustainable/locally-made clothing brands, in the past year I've also really tried to make a conscious effort about what I'm putting in my body… Let me tell you as a carb-a-holic, it's difficult! Luckily, I discovered vegan ice cream company Van Leeuwen and applaud their efforts for creating a sweet treat that's even sweeter for your health, thanks to their inclusion of strictly-organic ingredients. Yum.
Moleskine is a company that has really been able to sustain the art of writing by hand and celebrate it's roots. But by the same token, they have continued to move forward and forge some really innovative initiatives (check out some of their social responsibility programs). In a world over-encumbered by digital restrictions, like how much battery charge you have left, or maintaining WiFi connection, it's sometimes nice to simply pick up a pen and scribble! The notebooks themselves are also made with acid-free paper and are FSC-certified.
