Celebrated by millions of people across the globe, Earth Day (April 22nd) is a special day dedicated to appreciating our planet. It’s also a good time for businesses to evaluate ways to help conserve resources and protect our planet for future generations. Aside from adopting internal business practices to recycle, conserve energy and reuse or repurpose goods, we also encourage business owners and employees to use BizX to give back.

Founded in 2002, Nature’s Inventory is a thriving woman-owned international manufacturer and distributor of natural and certified organic wellness and beauty products that are sold by hundreds of domestic and international retailers and wholesalers. The concept was hatched when Founder LouAnn Brandjes was crippled with extreme pain that was later diagnosed as incurable lupus. Determined to find a cure, she initiated a focused search for natural remedies. LouAnn cured her disease by making healthy lifestyle changes and using natural wellness oils.
Fast forward to 2013 and Nature’s Inventory’s products include an expanded line of natural wellness oils for women, men, seniors, children, babies and even animals. It also has a line of herbal teas, natural skin care and cleaning products.
