"We really enjoy working with MCG Biocomposites because it gives us a chance to support an in-state company and utilize a recyclable product made from sustainable materials. These markers find a variety of uses in our institution, particularly for seasonal displays and are a cost effective way of connecting information about plants to a visitor's experience."

"When I made the decision to label the plants in my garden, I went on a search for quality markers. I didn't really like what I found anywhere in Cedar Rapids; most being imported. And then one day, purely by accident, I took my sister to a nursery I had almost forgotten about. Without naming names, Cedar River Garden Center, was the only place in the Cedar Rapids area carrying this particular product. They had in stock ... Bio-Markers, made from recycled plastic with corn cob fiber. This is an excellent product, thought of by a gentleman right here in Cedar Rapids; MCG BioComposites, LLC, is the company behind this quality, recycled product.
Where is everyone else? Why is CRGC the only gardening center in Cedar Rapids to try this? This time I will not name names, because you know who you are. All it takes is a brief comparison, and anyone with any common sense, will quickly see the best product. So why no luck with all these other gardening centers? Can you say imported from China ... ? I only use them because they seem to be the fave choice these days.
American retail companies put cost before quality. And the sad thing is, these markers will sell themselves. Why? Because it IS a quality product, and this one has a home right here in Cedar Rapids. So I would challenge all the gardening centers in the Cedar Rapids area to WAKE UP, and take the time to do a comparison. There are still some of us out here that believe in quality products.
Thank you, MCG BioMarkers!"

"The stakes were exactly what I needed. I have used them in several different occasions and I am really happy with the purchase."
"For historic Sunken Gardens, in St. Petersburg, FL, I ordered new plant labels more than a year ago, and I have been extremely pleased with how well they are holding up. In spite of extreme heat and humidity, and having endured numerous tropical storms and a hurricane, they still look like new. I certainly intend to order more. Great quality!"
Working with Sam McCord is a pleasure. He is open, sharing, knowledgeable and cares about providing the best product for my needs. These plant markers and labels are great easy-to-use products that seem likely to last a long time. I am using them in our Master Gardener demonstration garden at the zoo as well as in my home landscape. We have received many compliments on their size, design and visibility. I highly recommend them.
