The year 2022 was one of forward-thinking products that featured plant-based ingredients, sustainable packaging and regenerative agriculture practices.
New Hope Network’s editors had abundant opportunities to experience new and innovative products from a multitude of categories that included personal care, supplements, meat and dairy alternatives and household essentials. There was also a plethora of pantry staples and both savory and sweet snacks. All of this and more were discovered at Natural Products Expo East and Natural Products Expo West, through both shows' Pitch Slam events and, of course, the NEXTY Awards.
Specifically, our editors were particularly impressed by products that highlight environmentally friendly business practices in the sourcing, developing and packaging of materials. Brands such as Humble, Loop, The Unscented Company, Viv and Nimbus all featured products with eco-friendly materials and packaging: Viv offers biodegradable bamboo feminine pads and liners, while Loop partners with a vegan fast-food chain to tackle food waste by upcycling sunflower oil and repurposing it in its soaps. These types of sustainable products help contribute to a positive impact on people and the planet by mitigating waste.
