VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada (jan. 28, 2011): Spoonk Space announces its latest line of innovative and eco-friendly hemp acupressure mats to the U.S. and Canadian markets.

This green movement has encouraged retailers to embrace products that are both ethical and earth-conscious, and the decision has not gone unrewarded. Retailers who offer eco-friendly products enjoy the benefit of increasing their customer base. With so many retailers yet to realize the value of carrying green products, stores that do offer eco-friendly items reap the benefits of having exclusive customers.
