("Green Hygienics"), in the coming week, will commence presentations to key distribution groups in the southeast United States who have a mission for the conversion to environmentally friendly products for the hospitals that they supply. Tauriga has been making great strides since the execution of the Licensing Agreement ("Licensing Agreement") with Green Hygienics, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Green Innovations Ltd. (OTCQB:GNIN), for the North American exclusive distribution for commercial use of its 100% tree-free, bamboo-based, biodegradable, hospital grade wipes along with other complementary green products. The Company's long-term vision, pursuant to the license agreement, is the successful marketing of 100% tree-free, bamboo-based products including, but not limited to, wipes, bath tissue, paper towels, diapers, sanitary napkins and more, to the commercial marketplace of North America. All Green Hygienics' products are available through exclusive licensing agreements between Green Hygienics and its strategic partners and their respective manufacturing facilities in mainland China.

In addition, Tauriga is pleased to report to shareholders that the Company has now paid a total of $128,750 to Green Hygienics pursuant to the Licensing Agreement, therefore the Company has now received 321,875 shares of GNIN for that paid in capital. To completely satisfy the financial terms of the previously announced 5 year exclusive North American Licensing Agreement, the Company is required to pay a total of $250,000 to Green Hygienics on or before September 1, 2013, for which the Company receives 625,000 shares of GNIN restricted stock. Both companies and their respective management teams are working diligently to generate meaningful revenues during calendar year 2013.  

Commenting on the Licensing Agreement progress, Tauriga CEO Seth M. Shaw expressed, "The Company is excited to start its presentations to the commercial marketplace and has great confidence in both the quality and social benefits of the Green Hygienics' product line. Our initial strategy will be to target U.S. and Canada based hospitals, adult and nursing homes, school districts, private medical practices, and the distribution companies that service these industries. It is of great importance to establish relationships with major distributors servicing large medical establishments and educate them as to the merits of our licensed product line. The Company expects to fully satisfy the financial terms of the Licensing Agreement in the near term and will notify shareholders when this important milestone is accomplished." 

According to the American Hospital Association (AHA), as of 2011, there were 5,724 registered U.S. hospitals and, according to the U.S. Census Bureau Statistical Abstract of the United States: 2012, as of 2009, there were 15,700 nursing homes in the U.S. with approximately 1.4 million residents.
