This holiday season, Best Organics Inc. is giving local shoppers three more reasons to spend. Two weeks ago, the Boulder-based company launched a new product line, called America’s Best Organics, featuring three gourmet gift baskets overflowing with artisan foods, organic personal care products and other eco-friendly items all made in the United States.
“With the new product line, DeYarus said, “I think we’ll appeal to patriots who want to support ‘Made in the USA,’ and we’ll also attract those who really care about the Earth and making a difference with how they spend their dollars.”
