After all of the votes were tallied we are happy to report that Californians voted in favor of Proposition 67. This means single-use plastic bags will be banned in the Golden State.

I recently wrote a piece for TSNN about eco-friendly ideas for trade shows. Implementing eco-friendly strategies is a must if your company has established green objectives and goals, but even if your company does not take a stance on green issues, there is still a lot of value to going green at your next trade show.

Now that doesn’t mean that sales are not closed on the trade show floor, they are, but chances are, some type of a touch point or start to a relationship happened before the show that was a big factor in making the sales. Am I right?
