Natural Products Expo West, in Anaheim, California, is amazing. Huge. Inspiring. Occasionally confounding.

Lots of great green companies, small green companies, a few pretenders…and lots of brand-new-to-Planet Earth companies. This one was one of my faves—because every little detail was 1) elegant and 2) truly green. The cloth was organic. The plastic was recycled, and affixed without the use of (toxic) glues. The filling was latex, unlike a competitor (see the photo of foam interior of another company’s product).

These people are stylish, caring, they walk their talk. Our kind of company.

About Alex Myles

Alex Myles is qualified as a Yoga teacher, Reiki Master, Teacher of Tibetan Meditation, Dragon Magic and a Spiritual coach to name just a few. Alex has no intention to teach others on a formal basis for many years to come, instead, she is collecting qualifications along with life’s lessons. One day, when the time is right, Alex will set up a quaint studio, in a quirky crooked building where she will breathe and appreciate the slowness of those days as life is just way too busy right now! Reading and writing has always been one of Alex’s passions. Alex likes to consider herself as a free spirit rather than a commitment-phobe. Trying to live as aligned to a Buddhist lifestyle as is possible in this day and age, she just does not believe in "owning" anything or anyone. Based on the theory that we ‘cannot lose someone that was not ours to lose’ she flails through life finding joy and magic in the most unexpected places. Mother to a 21 year old daughter and three adorable pups, she appreciates that some of the best moments in life are the 6am forest walks watching the dogs run, play and interact with one another and with nature. Connect with her on Facebook and check out her blog, Love and Madness.
