One category brought Ginna Mouchet, CEO of Bowersville, Georgia, distributor Image Marketing and Promotions, to the Product Pavilion. “I’m looking for anything that’s made with recycled materials,” she said. Green Products, like the Carton Garden, has everything a recipient would need to grow a mini garden. This unique gardening kit has three types of seeds, six starter soil pods and three blank wooden seed stakes to organize the plants. As recipients tend to their gardens, your client’s brand will stay top of mind. Smell the roses in the Fields Manufacturing booth 3939.
