There was a huge smile on my face when this news item came across my desk yesterday. It’s all about a friend and fellow cloth diaper advocate, Kelly Wels, and her success with Green Team Distribution (aff). Green Team is the distributor behind some brands you probably already know and love, including Earth Mama Angel Baby, Eco Nuts and Eco Sprout, Lunette, Piggy Paint, Grandma El’s, Diaper Dawgs and Buncha Farmers.
Anyway…..here’s what Kelly has been up to!
PRESS RELEASE: South Paris, ME (January 16, 2014) – Manufacturer sales rep agency, Green Team Distribution (aff), today announces it has achieved triple digit growth in 2013, distributing 30 eco-friendly children’s brands to more than 185 children’s products retailers. Kelly Wels, the founder of Green Team Distribution, says the significant year-to-year growth shows the increasing need for manufacturers to streamline their fulfillment processes, as well as the desire for manufacturers and retailers to improve their relationships.
“We help manufacturers get their products into the hands of the retailers who in-turn sell those products to their customers. Retailers trust the brands we carry and enjoy the benefits that come along with working with a distributor, such as one-stop ordering of multiple brands within a single e-commerce platform, no minimum order limits that tie up a retailer’s capital, and pre-qualified products by someone with deep understanding of the industry.”
For 10 years, Wels ran an eco-friendly ecommerce site, which she sold in 2010. In September 2011, she started Green Team Distribution. “We work hard to strengthen relationships between brands and retailers by helping each party work together harmoniously,” adds Wels.
Piggy Paint, Green Toys, Earth Mama Angel Baby, Lunette and eco-kids are among the 30 eco-friendly children’s products Green Team Distribution distributes.
Kip Weeks, the founder of eco-kids, the manufacturer of environmentally-friendly art supplies for kids, says distribution through Green Team Distribution has helped him improve his retail sales and streamline the way he works with retailers.
“Green Team Distribution has made it easier for us to handle wholesale orders of all sizes without creating additional burden on our fulfillment staff. Plus, I know retailers trust the products Kelly sources because she is extremely knowledgeable about the industry, and she infuses instant credibility in the brands she carries,” says Weeks.
