MIAMI, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Innovations Ltd. (OTCQB: GNIN) (OTCBB: GNIN) ("Green Innovations" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Green Hygienics, Inc. ("Green Hygienics"), has appointed the first member to its recently formed Strategic Advisory Board.       

"The last few months have been very exciting and productive for Green Innovations and Green Hygienics.  A Strategic Advisory Board will help to take advantage of the momentum that we have started to build," stated Bruce Harmon, Chief Executive Officer of Green Innovations.  "The Strategic Advisory Board is intended to complement our existing team with additional experts that can offer guidance to the Company as we execute our growth strategy going forward."

First to join the Company's Strategic Advisory Board is Mr. Kalpesh Parmar, a Shanghai-based entrepreneur with more than 15 years of global business operations, sales, and marketing experience in the disposal hygiene industry. Mr. Parmar is considered a pioneer in the wet wipes sector in China and has been credited to developing innovative improvements and products in the disposal hygiene segment. In 2001, he co-founded American Hygienics Corporation (AHC), a privately-owned Shanghai-based company focused on developing and manufacturing wet wipes products for the medical, industrial, and consumer applications. Mr. Parmar has since helped build AHC into one of the largest private label wet wipe export manufacturing facility in China and the largest manufacturer of bamboo-based wet wipes in Asia, exporting products to over 45 countries with over 200 dedicated employees.

"I am amazed at the growth that Green Innovations has shown over the last three months.  As a pioneer and leader in this industry, I see many similarities in the progress at Green Innovations to the way in which I started and grew AHC," stated Kalpesh Parmar.  "It is very exciting to have been invited to join their strategic advisory board and know that my many years of experience will be a huge benefit to the Company and their future growth.  I look forward to bringing creative cutting edge ideas and products to Green Innovations and to help make them our best partner to date."

Mr. Harmon continued, "We are extremely honored to have someone of Kalpesh's caliber to become to first member of the Green Innovations Strategic Advisory Board.  His extensive industry knowledge, experience, position, and insight into new potential high demand product opportunities should provide us with an immediate competitive advantage and help to further establish Green Innovations as a leading supplier in the tree-free and bamboo products sector."

The Company anticipates the appointment of additional members to the Strategic Advisory Board over the next several weeks that will further enhance management's ability to direct the future growth of the Company.
