Date:5/21/2010

ECOSTASY™ is pleased and proud to announce a collaboration with 2010 International Year of Biodiversity as proclaimed by the United Nations to raise awareness and support efforts to promote biodiversity. ECOSTASY’s mission and distinctive collection of sustainable designs are inextricably linked to biodiversity.

(PRWEB) May 21, 2010 -- May 22, 2010 is the International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) which has been celebrated annually since 1994. This year’s observance is particularly special as the United Nations has proclaimed 2010 the International Year of Biodiversity (IYB) to celebrate and promote efforts to safeguard the variety of life on earth. On this occasion, ECOSTASY is pleased and proud to announce a collaboration with 2010 International Year of Biodiversity to raise awareness and support efforts to promote biodiversity.    

On our site ecostasy.com, we are pleased to offer the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity t-shirt, officially endorsed by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, United Nations Environment Programme. All profits from t-shirt sales will be donated to a leading environmental non-governmental organization (NGO) in Brazil. Please join us in supporting IYB and important environmental protection efforts with the purchase of this great looking and feeling organic cotton t-shirt with the official IYB logo. This is one of a few initiatives ECOSTASY will launch in support of IYB in the coming months.

ECOSTASY’s mission is inextricably linked to biodiversity and pays tribute to the world’s most biodiverse country – Brazil. ECOSTASY is based in New York City, but aims for a global impact with its distinctive collection of sustainable designs, principally from Brazil. Our personal accessories, including jewelry and handbags, and home décor objects are hand-made from natural and renewable materials such as palm fibers, seeds, silk, natural and recycled fabrics, cork and responsibly managed wood.

ECOSTASY buys directly from innovative designers to artisans and indigenous communities in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest working harmoniously with nature. ECOSTASY expands the market for their goods and raises cultural and environmental awareness through our highly informational conscious commerce destination. We also showcase inspiring images of biodiversity on our website and are delighted to collaborate with internationally renowned nature photographer Luiz Claudio Marigo whose images bring us closer to Brazil’s magnificent biodiversity.

ECOSTASY was launched in 2010 by Katherine Ponte after working as a lawyer and banker. Katherine pursued this mission inspired by her rich experiences living in Brazil and life-long appreciation for nature and handcrafted objects. Katherine received a BA at the University of Western Ontario, a law degree at Osgoode Hall Law School and an MBA from the Wharton School.
