For 3 days, booth  #5239S was home to Plyboo’s best and brightest reps.  Representatives from Smith & Fong Co. and its Canadian distributor, Taproot were there to meet sustainability enthusiasts in the most anticipated tradeshow of the year.  Thousands came out to see what’s new in environmentally friendly products, and Plyboo did not disappoint.
