Replenish arriving at select Whole Foods locations
CHICAGO — An ultra-concentrated, multisurface cleaner in a reusable bottle system is being rolled out at select Whole Foods stores.
Replenish said its all-in-one bottle will be available next month in 33 of Whole Foods’ stores in the Midwest. The system, the company said, allows consumers to measure, mix with water, store and spray powerful cleaners using replaceable concentrate pods, instead of buying premixed cleaners.
Replenish is available in three scents: fresh lavender, sun lemon and green tea.

Nature’s Innovation rolls out Bed Bug Patrol travel spray pen
BUFORD, Ga. — Nature’s Innovation on Saturday announced the launch of its Bed Bug Patrol travel spray pen, a nonpesticide spray for the elimination of bed bugs.
“Six years ago, I started hearing rumblings that bed bugs were becoming a big problem again and the only way to get rid of them was with chemicals that contained carcinogenic ingredients,” stated Bill Carlson, CEO of Nature’s Innovation. “In 2004, as a certified homeopath and an avid natural products expert, I decided to come up with a formula using only 100% EPA-exempt natural ingredients. After a year of laboratory testing and reformulating, I developed Bed Bug Patrol as a green alternative to traditional pesticides.”
Bed Bug Patrol works by blocking an adrenaline-like neurotransmitter called octopamine only found in insects, Carlson said. By blocking octopamine, Bed Bug Patrol is able to stop key neurotransmitter and neuromodulator receptors that affect the bed bug’s central nervous system, shutting down key bodily functions. The essential oils also permeate the exoskeleton and eat away the hard cutin layer shell, he added.
