Natural Products Expo West!

The biggest, baddest, greenest (both in terms of eco and in terms of [triple] bottomlines) expo this side of the Miss-iss-ippi will magically appear, this weekend, in Anaheim. Magically weighed down by my mortgage as we continue to transition ecopaper elephant journal to paperless, I won’t make it this time—but Claire Burstein, who I met at Eco Gift, will do a write up of her and our favorite companies, and be sure to (kindly) call out any greenwashing in evidence. So if you want to be included in our write up, natural products cos, and you haven’t already emailed [email protected], please do so—we aim for our write up to be top 10 in Googleland, and will do three day-of write ups as well.

Here’s our writeup of last Natural Products Expo East, for those of you who want to get in the mood or, like me, will be missing out on the Ecopalooza this time round. Our Natural Products Expo West 2009 write up will, we hope, be equally comprehensive—and as with Expo East we’ll follow in the months after with countless product reviews of all our favorite new companies, or new offerings from favorite old companies.
