Cora’s Sustainable Guide To Hudson Valley, New York
My husband and I decided to spend Memorial Day weekend this year in Hudson Valley, right outside of New York City but still a beautiful spot for nature, hiking, antiquing, and farm to table eating. All of my favorite things! Here is my guide to some of our most sustainable stops in the area.
Where to Stay:
We chose Inness because it’s such a beautiful place of course, but also follows a seasonal and local menu, has re-wilded a good amount of their land, use heat pumps for heating, have all natural materials in the rooms, lots of vintage furniture and encourages a real sense of nature throughout the space. When we woke up in our cottage we had deer outside and wildlife is encouraged around the grounds. It was truly a gorgeous place to stay and a very thoughtful experience!

Essentials To Pack:
Designed for simplicity and made for everyday, So Elly clothing is handcrafted from thoughtfully sourced textiles. Sewn in small batches in New York City. Every So Elly piece is made with a commitment to versatility, quality of material and fine craftsmanship. Each item is designed to be mixed and matched, loved and worn for years to come.
Created with circularity as its main aspiration and a love of the ocean in its soul, Koraru is the Japanese pronunciation of the English word ‘coral’, home to one of the world’s most treasured, beautiful, but threatened ecosystems. Koraru’s swimwear is made with ECONYL® regenerated yarn from nylon waste, and our packaging materials are created with a range of new recyclable materials, each with its own amazing story.
Founded by Zi Xuan and Yijia Wang, Advene is a New York City-based accessories brand making subtle, functional bags that are thoughtfully constructed and responsibly made – advocating for best-in-class materials and craftsmanship above all else. Advene comes from the term ‘advenience’ meaning ‘art that stirs something inside of you’. It took a year for the New York-based co-creators to develop the style, one which is the result of six different prototype iterations and the consequence of multiple conversations with fabric tanneries, textile labs and hemp farms. The style has conscious design stitched into every seam.
