Green Product Placement (GPP) was launched in early 2012 by ecopreneur Beth Bell. The concept was conceived during a TED.com conversation with filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (“Supersize Me,” “Pom Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold”). GPP is a unique product placement company providing services exclusively to companies with a focus on green, sustainable, socially enterprising and local entrepreneurial products. What makes GPP different from conventional product placement companies? Promoting Green products in mainstream entertainment not only increases brand awareness for “good brands” but, in turn makes sustainability much more appealing to the consuming public. They like to call what they do “positive placement.” GPP is also committed to sustainable practices in how they run their business, as well.
Over the past two years, GPP has placed over 34 “good brands” in over 75+ productions including feature films and major network television shows both in the US and Canada. They are slated to begin working with UK productions in 2014.
Today, as GPP continues to grow, so do product placement opportunities within the mainstream TV and Film market. To learn more, visit: www.greenproductplacement.com/us.
