We found several products we liked at this year's Expo…and a few that we could live without.

RODALE NEWS, EMMAUS, PA—Today we're closing out our coverage of Natural Products Expo East with an encore presentation of some of the products we found there—and a new video offering a closer look. Here are seven samples, starting with some items we really liked:

1. Klean Kanteen stainless steel baby bottles. Certain harmful chemicals such as BPA are found in many plastic water bottles, so stainless steel bottles have become super-popular in the last few years. Klean Kanteen created the first ever food-grade bottle, and in early 2010, the company will debut a Klean Kanteen stainless steal baby bottle for about $20.

2. Laundry detergent by Sun & Earth. Take a whiff of most conventional laundry detergents and you'll be overwhelmed by chemical fragrances that are unhealthy as well as unpleasant. Sun & Earth, based in King of Prussia, PA, has been producing safer cleaning products for 20 years, and now offers a new unscented version of its nontoxic, biodegradable laundry detergent. Unlike most detergents you'll find at the store, this one is plant-based, and free of dyes and harsh perfumes linked to allergies and indoor air pollution. A bottle runs about $10 and is available in some stores or at Or visit their King of Prussia warehouse and buy in bulk to save money and packaging!

3. Radius Source Toothbrush. The new Source Toothbrush from Radius is made of 93 percent recycled material, including recycled U.S. dollar bills. Other models are made from recycled flax or wood. You only have to replace the head of the toothbrush when it wears out, reducing waste by about 90 percent! They are about $7 each, with replacement heads running about $2.50.
