Wondering why Jay-Z's face has recently appeared all over the Lower East Side, along with the hashtag #SYVW? It's because of Shop Your Values Week, a celebration of local and sustainable business that kicks off today. The event's goal is to highlight ethical retail around NYC, and some of the local businesses will be offering specials. Find out if your own favorite stores are involved on the event's website, where the map of participating businesses is packed with bullet points all over Manhattan and the western edge of Brooklyn.
