EnviroSystems Canada Tour 2020 - Pitching at the Bow Centre, Calgary

Graham had a successful first day yesterday pitching SlurryBugs and OptiSile Extra to Canadian delegates. Luckily his good friend 'Buster the SlurryBug' has travelled along to keep him company. Here's Buster looking out across Alberta from the Sky Garden on the 54 th  Floor of the Bow Centre, Calgary.
