I tested this product personally and was able to capture our fire on video, with time-lapse technology. The fire lasted for over four hours, with little maintenance, by adding a few additional logs as the original ones burned away.

About the Founder

Fire. Fire. was created by Aaron, a firefighter with over 15 years of experience hosting and tending fires for friends and family across the United States. From cutting and splitting wood to the smell of it burning, Aaron wanted to share his joy with others. He offered his services to those who wanted fire but did not want to tend or rely on their guests to maintain it. Hence the birth of Fire. Fire. the first full-service fire company dedicated to the whole process of providing a one-of-a-kind experience. Starting from designing and arranging fire pit locations to maintaining the fires throughout the event, Fire. Fire. is there.

About the Founders

Beauty by Earth was founded by two friends searching for safe skincare products for their young children. Their mission is to provide premium organic and natural skincare products at an affordable price, thereby making them accessible to all. To them, words like “organic” and “natural” aren’t marketing gimmicks: they’re a promise.  Beauty by Earth products are Certified Cruelty-free, created from responsibly sourced ingredients abd proudly made in the USA.

About the Company

Recognized by the Inc. 5000, Beauty by Earth has had ground breaking success with their products since the company’s debut in 2014.

The founders passion for natural, high-performing, safe ingredients was born with the birth of their kids (pun intended). They were fed up with the skincare industry’s casual disregard for our family’s health. Every time they put on sunscreen, they traded protection from the sun for exposure to harmful toxins. Enough was enough!

That’s how two friends became founders and co-owners of one of the fastest-growing natural skincare companies in the U.S.

About the Founders

Murphy’s Naturals was named after Philip, the founder’s best friend, Murphy. Murphy is a standard brown poodle that loves the outdoors. Philip’s passion for finding a natural mosquito repellent stemmed from the outdoor explorations he and Murphy loved to do. Unfortunately, most of Murphy’s favorite fetch spots were also the buggiest. So Philip got to work on developing a natural, mosquito repellent formula where he could enjoy being with his friend in any fetch spot Murphy’s heart chose.


About the Company

Murphy’s Naturals is a B Certified Corporation that takes pride in formulating powerful, plant-based blends that other natural manufacturers have overlooked or skimped on. They avoid DEET altogether. Instead, they look to nature for natural mosquito repellents. In their sprays, you get 30% lemon eucalyptus oil—the only plant-based mosquito repellent recommended by the CDC. For the other products, candles and incense harness proprietary blends of citronella, lemongrass, rosemary, and peppermint to shield you from the pesky biters.

About the Founders

zaca-brothersTwo brothers moved to the mile-high city of Denver, CO, in 2005. They both found the adverse effects of the altitude change almost unbearable. From intense pressure headaches to feeling exhausted every time they exercised, the happy hours made waking up a misery. We sought out a solution and had a eureka moment. So they set out to design a formula to help counteract dehydration’s effects, and Zaca was born.

About the Company

Founded in 2005, their tablets have aided in thousands of people feeling better that were struggling with the effects of dehydration. Also, featured in Buzzfeed, Forbes,The Doctors, and NBC.zaca-featured-in
