The boutique will be located in Grand Central Terminal's Vanderbilt Hall, 42nd Street and Park Avenue.

“We are pleased to host EcoLux in Grand Central Terminal to present the most stylish and sustainable clothing designers to New Yorkers and commuters alike. Our “Be the E” campaign encourages everyone to do their part to protect the environment. These designers will make it easy to do the right thing when purchasing apparel and look great at the same time." said Pamela Lippe, Executive Director of Earth Day New York.
