Organic Style Achieves 34 Percent Revenue Growth In Third Quarter of 2009
Orlando, FL --- Tuesday, November 3, 2009 - Organic Style, a leading web-based retailer of certified organic flowers and gifts, announced today a 34 percent revenue growth in the third quarter of 2009. With a new CEO at the helm, a new headquarters in Orlando, FL. and over 80 new products to offer socially conscience consumers, Organic Style has successfully positioned itself for a green future.

Organic Style’s 34 percent revenue growth in the third quarter of 2009, compared with the same period in 2008, is just one result of the tough turnaround tactics implemented by CEO, Robert McLaughlin. Since taking office in June 2009, McLaughlin has centralized the firm’s operations, including relocating the company’s headquarters from San Francisco, CA. to Orlando, FL. “It was clear that centralization, cost consolidation and new marketing blood needed to be pumped into this company,” said McLaughlin. “The double digit revenue growth that we achieved organically in spite of the economic climate, coupled with the annual cost savings of $3M USD from centralizing our operations, will allow Organic Style to implement an aggressive growth strategy for 2010.”

CEO, Robert McLaughlinTransforming Organic Style into a thriving, socially responsible company is personal for McLaughlin. “I started my career in the packing sheds and greenhouses of Central Florida working as a laborer. I watched our head agronomist die at an early age from toxic chemical exposure. I knew there had to be a better way,” explained McLaughlin.

With a mission to make a positive impact on the world and to inspire consumers to make choices that matter, Organic Style is more than an eco-luxury online shopping destination. “We are a company that cares about environmental, social and economic sustainability. Being sustainable is not just about our company. It’s about our partners, our industry associates and our customers. A sustainable product is more than just one farm and one plant; it’s about an industry, a country and a global understanding,” said McLaughlin.

With revenue growth expected to exceed 70% over previous year in 2010, McLaughlin hopes that Organic Style’s mission-based business model will serve as an example for other businesses by illustrating how two distinct strategies, social responsibility and financial success, can simultaneously coexist within an organization. “Our company has an opportunity to make a difference while enhancing our shareholder value and grow to new heights financially and spiritually. The higher we climb the more good we can do,” said McLaughlin.

Highlights to be proud of:

Kochi, India
In 2008, Organic Style chose to address the issue of families working near the mills not able to afford to send both sons and daughters to school. Organic Style agreed to purchase scrap remnants from the cotton mill where our sheets are manufactured and pay to have them sewn into bags that we use to package our sheets and other gift items. The agreement to purchase the scrap material produced enough funds to send 300 girls to school for the first time. We are proud to say that this project continues today. If you have purchased a product from Organic Style and it arrived in a cotton bag, you know you have helped educate a child.

Andean Highlands, Ecuador
This year, Organic Style added an outreach program aimed at helping the farmers in the Andean Highlands of Ecuador finance the purchase of flower seeds. Organic Style financed 100% of the seeds empowering these farmers to grow an exportable crop and make a fair livable return, all while preserving the local ecosystem.

Andean Highlands, Ecuador & Colombia
In 2010, Organic Style will expand their outreach program to include a no interest loan to finance the cost of certification. This program will further contribute to the economic and environmental sustainability within the region.
