We had another great experience at this year’s Natural Products Expo West 2015 in Anaheim, California. It’s always so motivating and encouraging to be completely immersed in a sea of like-minded individuals and companies dedicated to the same values of sustainable, organic, and fair-trade established products.
This year there was reported to be over 60,000 people in attendance – wow! We think it signifies a major movement in the right direction within our society toward sustainable values.
Needless to say, there is quite a vast sea of exhibitors that are presents at a nearly overwhelming number. We’re honored to be included in Conscious Living TV’s Hot Natural Products list of their favorite products they found at the show!
To narrow down their results, products had to contain one, some or all of the following:
1) Products sourced from transparent farmers/companies/facilities who produce a clean product.
2) Products are organic, biodynamic and non-gmo certified.
3) Products are made with care, intention and respect for their product and the consumer.
4) Product that use recycled packaging, vegetable dyes and can be recycled, biodegradable or re-used.
5) Product is raw, vegan, gluten free, dairy-free, soy-free and corn-free.
6) Product is fair trade or profits are donated back into community or service related projects.
7) Product is produced by a dedicated team who provide excellent customer service
Many of the exhibitors present at Expo West are food-related, hence the criteria above. However, we have a hunch that we qualified due to reasons #3, #5, and #6.
Our new and improved Snap-On Toothbrush Sanitizer was first on their list of favorites. Here’s what they had to say:
Most of us don’t know that germs from our toilet can make their way to our toothbrush heads. Gross! However, there is something we can all do to help sanitize our precious brushes. Dr. Tung has a new and improved snap on cover that contains anti-bacterial lemon, clove, peppermint, tea tree, and thyme oil. You may have seen these covers in drug or health food stores already, but this updated version will put the rest to shame. These covers come with small circular refills that easily slip on the cover so that we don’t need to buy an entirely new cover every two months. Not only that but the entire package is biodegradable. So let’s keep the bacteria out of our mouths and out of our waste bins, shall we?
