MIAMI, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Innovations Ltd. (OTCQB: GNIN) (OTCBB: GNIN) ("Green Innovations" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has expanded its recently formed Strategic Advisory Board. 

Second to join the Green Innovations Strategic Advisory Board is Mr. Mark DeFilippo, who brings with him to the Company over 20 years of Category Management experience with Walgreens, many in high profile categories, including candy, batteries, and over-the-counter products, such as cough-cold, pain and sleep remedies.  Mr. DeFilippo currently serves as a sales and marketing consultant to the consumer products manufacturing and distribution sectors.

Mr. Harmon continued, "Mark's experience at Walgreens should provide our team with the insight and knowledge of what is needed to continue to build distribution of all Green Hygienics products at major chains across the U.S."

The Company anticipates making further complementary appointments to the Strategic Advisory Board over the next several weeks.
