Street teams will hand out roses and carnations by the thousands to the public at Penn Station, Grand Central, Times Square, and on Wall Street to promote a collaborative Land of Flowers campaign that aims to promote the South American nation’s booming floral industry. Apparently, Americans aren’t just buying their coke, but their fresh cut flowers too with Colombia exporting $1 billion worth to the U.S. in 2007.
