Alder New York has been selected as a finalists for Martha Stewart's American Made Awards 2015. This award honors makers, small-business owners, and creative entrepreneurs in the fields of crafts, design, food, and style, for creating beautiful, quality products and building successful American businesses and community. In addition to the makers chosen by Martha Stewart and the editors of Martha Stewart Living, one winner will be chosen through a vote by the community to win the American Made Audience Choice Award. American Made Winners should display innovativeness, workmanship, design aesthetic, and an embodiment of American made production.

As the founders of Alder New York, we come from a design background, which has given us a fresh perspective on the grooming and beauty industry. We believe good design is a combination of quality materials and aesthetic; and we apply this to all Alder New York Products. All our apothecary goods are synthetic fragrance, talc, paraben, sulfate, formaldehyde, petroleum, dye, and cruelty free, and are created with an emphasis on simplicity, adding no superfluous ingredients. Each ingredient used is known for its non-harmful nature and sourced ethically to the best of our abilities and scented with simple, clean fragrances derived from natural oils. Additionally, Alder New York products are made to be a part of a curated bathroom shelf, medicine cabinet, or travel bag.

We both feel a strong commitment to our country, our economy, and the laborers that make it up, which is why we not only produce everything here in the United States, but also try to source our materials locally whenever possible. By working locally we use less fuel and drain less environmental resources, and we can ensure that our laborers are being treated well and paid fairly. 

We feel we embody Martha Stewart's American Made Ethos and hope that you will vote for us if you agree. Please help us win the Martha Stewarts American Made Audience Choice Award by voting for us now until October 19th. We appreciate all your support. - The ANY Team
