We’re Open: Leaf People
In our continued effort to keep the local residents informed on which businesses remain open, The Aspen Times has started the “We’re Open” feature to profile local businesses working through the coronavirus crisis. We want to connect consumers with the work businesses are doing to stay open.
You can also find our continuously updated “What’s Open” list of businesses that are operating on our website at http://www.aspentimes.com.
To be featured as a business profile, email staff reporter Austin Colbert at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Aspen Times: How have you gotten creative during this time? What have you done to keep your customers engaged?
Leaf People: I started making Instagram TV segments to educate our followers on various herbal topics — herbs for colds and flus, nerve tonics, allergies — with a little dose of humor. This has been a challenge for me since I typically stay behind the scenes, but I think people have enjoyed them.
AT: What’s the most important thing the community can do to support you?
LP: Stay connected with us! We love to hear from our clients and usually have more direct contact since we are a community-based business. We miss that! I love hearing ideas for new products they would like. For instance, we received many requests for a more “healthy” hand sanitizer. After a few intense weeks in the lab, we now offer organic, herbal infused hand sanitizer that does not strip your skin and it meets FDA regulations. I am also working on a variety of new, very nourishing hand washes and soaps. So we are answering requests as we get them. And continue your daily Leaf People regime! Healthy skin is important for a healthy you!
AT: Where can we find your most current offerings and updates?
LP: At leafpeople.com and through our social media channels @leafpeople.
AT: What has been the best customer experience or comment you’ve had since the crisis started?
LP: Many of our customers have reached out to say that continuing their daily Leaf People regime has provided a sense of normalcy for them and they are very grateful for that. It’s such a part of people’s everyday life and is associated with positive thoughts and feelings and those positive connections to our products make them feel better during difficult times.
AT: Is there anything else you’d like to add regarding your business during the pandemic?
LP: We are here for you in ways that go beyond our products. Please feel free to reach out, even if it’s for a seemingly unrelated reason and we will do our best to help or offer ideas on how to get to the right place.

Wildfires, mudslides and a nationwide jet fuel shortage have combined in recent weeks to create an unpredictable climate for the availability of jet fuel at Aspen’s airport.
