I entered the Saku New York show partially exhausted and admittingly with minimal knowledge of the brand. Little did I know, the show would be one of the highlights of my NYFW 2017 experience.
This time around, I attended a couple of shows as a photographer rather than a guest. And for Saku, a photographer. Ten minutes late to the show photographer, unfortunately. As you can imagine, upon arrival, I stumbled out of my Lyft car like a tumbleweed, only to be greeted by a line as long as time. Luckily for me, a photographer's pass meant bye bye line.
I strive to eat healthily and be as environmentally friendly as possible in my daily life. Therefore I love scouting out restaurants that both serve healthy options and aim to lower their carbon footprint. Homegrown Sandwiches is a recent foodie discovery that not only serves delicious, healthy eats but is committed to being environmentally responsible. I joke that they are the superhero of food because that is what it is! Check out their mission statement:
“We’re so often asked, “what’s a sustainable sandwich?” And we get it, on the surface, it’s just a sandwich! But we believe that something as simple as a sandwich can do big things in the world.
