Event adds healthy pubs to GNC, Vitamin World sponsorship

SILVER SPRING, MARYLAND July 3, 2008 – The HerbDay Coalition invites manufacturers and retailers to take advantage of marketing opportunities with national consumer magazines by joining GNC and Vitamin World as sponsors of HerbDay. 

“Since Herb Day began in 2006, Taste for Life (the leading in-store consumer magazine on natural health) has supported this event with its editorial and by promoting HerbDay in the 1300-plus stores that receive our magazine,” says Associate Publisher/Editor in Chief Roon Frost. “Once again, Taste for Life and its sister publication, Remedies, will dedicate several articles to educating consumers on the importance of herbs and herbal medicines.”

“Herb Day provides an ideal opportunity to raise public awareness about herbs and the natural world,” says The Herb Companion editor Vicki Mattern. “By collaborating with other organizations, we can reach more people, more effectively, helping them discover the many ways herbs can enrich and enhance our lives.”

The Herb Companion, Taste for Life and Remedies are offering special advertising opportunities for sponsors of HerbDay 2008.
