The Authentic Green

"The Authentic Green / North Carolina's Green Industry" a new promotional video produced by the NC Green Industry Council about the dynamic and diverse aspects of the green industry in our state was shown at this year's State Fair in Raleigh. The video was part of a NC GIC promotional display depicting the different segments of the green industry as the center piece of NCDA's Got To Be NC tent.  The display and the video illustrate the strong partnership between the NC Green Industry Council, its member associations  and NCDA in promoting North Carolina's green industry. Water Wise Works brochures, the Environmental Benefits of Turf Brochures, The Real Christmas Tree/The Environmental Choice and other green industry consumer education materials were distributed to the 1 million plus, record attendance at this year's fair! Take a few minutes and watch the video here and see why the green industry is so important to North Carolina!

The North Carolina Green Industry Council is an umbrella organization, representing 11 green industry trade associations with over 2,500 member companies within the state.
