Want to Know What’s New in Natural Products? Follow Me at Expo West!

Expo West 2015 coverage on mindfulmomma.comIt’s that time of year again! This Thursday I’ll be flying to Anaheim, CA to attend the Natural Products Expo – the bi-annual mecca of natural and organic products.

Since I know you love greener, safer, better products – I want to keep you updated on all the cool stuff I find out there. I’ll be meeting with my favorite brands (this is where they introduce new products) and also discovering tons of new companies making awesome products we’ve never even heard of yet. Many products are debuted for the first time ever at the show – so it’s the place to be to stay on top of what’s new in natural.

Organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, raw, fair trade….quinoa, chia, baobab, kale….kombucha, meat substitutes, chocolate, yogurt….probiotics, fish oils, vitamins….skincare, cosmetics, home care….you name it and I’ll be looking for it!

Follow me on social media

Throughout the show, I’ll be posting on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Please follow along! Look for the hashtags #mindfulproducts and #expowest. 

After I get back, I’ll share some more – including some of the wackier products I find and my take on the trends I see happening in food, personal care and home.

I’ll be wearing my comfy shoes and walking the expo halls ’till I drop – can’t wait to share what I find!

What types of products are you most interested in? Leave me a comment and I’ll be on the lookout for you!
