Collaboration is expected to increase the Company’s presence in one of LA’s most sought-after retail locations
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — February 8, 2021/ CNW/ PlantX Life Inc. (CSE: VEGA) (Frankfurt: WNT1) (OTCQB: PLTXF) (“PlantX” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a new collaboration with Farm Cup Coffee.
The collaboration presents an exciting opportunity for PlantX to display and sell its houseplants, which range from succulents to an exotic variety of potted flora, in Farm Cup Coffee’s new physical location in West Hollywood, California. A selection of PlantX’s indoor plant collection will be retailed and exhibited at this location by Farm Cup Coffee. The collaboration is intended to increase PlantX’s brand awareness in a partnership that is in tune with PlantX’s values of community empowerment and living healthy lifestyles.
“Displaying our indoor plants in the highly attractive Farm Cup Coffee store in West Hollywood will expand PlantX’s reach to its customers and boost our brand visibility,” said Sean Dollinger, PlantX founder. “We are thrilled to collaborate with the Farm Cup Coffee team, whose passion for sustainability is echoed by PlantX’s aim to inspire people to adopt healthier, more eco-friendly lifestyles.”
Farm Cup Coffee’s story began in 2017 in a Citroen van outfitted as a mobile and stylish coffee shop, which was a manifestation of the founders’ profound commitment to living life sustainably. Farm Cup Coffee focuses on organic coffee that is ethically sourced from farm owners around the world. Founders Tony Yuan and Emerson Haro were joined by Diego Torres-Palma, a developer, investor and podcast host of Startup to Storefront, and together they started expanding Farm Cup Coffee’s narrative.
“Our brand focuses on positivity and ethical direct sourcing whenever possible. We not only want you to drink good coffee, we want you to feel good drinking it, too. This harmonious partnership with PlantX at our West Hollywood location will help promote a happy and sustainable lifestyle for the local community,” said Tony Yuan, co-founder of Farm Cup Coffee.
