The Natural Products Expo offered thousands of companies a platform to showcase their goods. There were thousands of visitors as well so apologies for the poor sound quality in the videos below. Here are notables in the category of To Use:
EZ Squeezees – EZ Squeezees, a refillable pouch, was created with two things in mind: cost savings and providing a convenient way to carry nourishing meals on-the-go. I tried them with my son’s morning smoothie with good results. Ideal for younger kids as the capacity is somewhat limited. EZ Squeezees are easy to use with a pinch zipper allowing you to refill the pouch with your squeezable food (soup, pureed fruits, smoothie) of the day. Even better? EZ Squeezees are dishwasher safe.
Full Circle – Full Circle introduced me to my new favorite water bottle. Their Wherever Water Lemon On-the-Go Glass Water Bottle allows you to juice citrus directly in to the water bottle. If there are pits? No problem – the juicing contraption keeps them from entering the bottle. That’s what I call smart sipping. Add a couple packets of Nektar Natural crystalized honey and you have a healthy alternative to Gatorade.
Woolzies – Woolzies Dryer Balls are a product to make drying laundry more efficient by cutting down drying time by 25%. Handmade in Nepal, Woolzies are pure wool dryer balls that act as a fabric softener when drying clothes, minus all the harsh chemicals.
Savvy Green – Savvy Green offers eco-friendly laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent and oxygen brightening powder. The laundry line is ideal for those with sensitive skin as it is free of harsh chemicals and doesn’t leave residues which build up in machines. Recyclable packaging makes this line extra savvy and green.
Pivotal 5 – Pivotal 5 offers practical, well-styled and reasonably priced yoga and pilates mats and accessories.
Kid Konserve/U-Konserve – If a waste-free lunch package sounds appealing to you than U-Konserve products should be on your list of things to invest in. Whimsical and colorful packaging and stainless steel leak proof containers make this line smart and hip. U-Konserve products are a natural alternative to the brown bag way of lunch.
Sili Squeeze – The Sili Squeeze is an ergonomic alternative to those chemical-ridden sippy cups that were impossible to clean and dangerous when thrown. BPA- PVC- and Phthalate- free, Sili Squeeze bottles are a reusable food pouch intended for homemade smoothies for both children and adults.
Bum Boosa – Bum Boosa products are an innovative line of bamboo-centric diapering and toilet paper products. Created by a group of mothers in Massachusetts who wanted healthier bathroom products for their family, Bum Boosa is an environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional bathroom products.
