Their goal to find affordable, organic, and non-Genetically Modified Organism products led to the formation of The Green PolkaDot Box (GPDB). Popularly called “The Box,” their mission is to provide affordable organic and clean products directly to the homes of their rapidly growing pre-launch membership of over 12,000 people.
Rod A. Smith chose Patty James as their new product brand reviewer because she is passionate about the art and science of cooking and natural health.
