From the time she was three years old, Megan M Riley knew she was different. She spotted spirits in her house, communicated with deceased relatives, and even witnessed her grandmother's apparition at her cousin's wedding. At first she tried to ignore her gift, but then she decided to embrace it instead. After studying with shamans, yogis, and other mediums, Megan began using her abilities to help others connect with loved ones who have passed on and identify deep-seated emotional issues. No matter what the concern, Megan focuses on providing positive, enlightening sessions that offer clients a sense of empowerment.

Whenever Brian Corby bathed his dog Presley, she shook and squirmed, flooding the bathroom and exhausting her owner. Taking her to the groomers was hardly better: careless clippers nicked her belly and chipped her nails too short, dashing her dreams of modeling in poker dog portraits. Fed up, Brian enlisted his long-time pal Greg to come up with an alternative, and the result was Green Dog Wash. They staff professional dog groomers whose exacting standards dictate that fur is cleansed with natural shampoos, teeth are brushed, and ears and eyes are cleaned. Owners can also bathe their furry companions themselves in a professional grooming center with tubs, shampoos, and towels, avoiding the hassles of cleaning up at home.
When pets drop by one of Green Dog Wash's two locations, they often pull their owners over to the gift section, which stocks eco-friendly treats and toys. The goods, including Natural Balance dry dog food, West Paw Design beds, and K-99 natural treats, double as enticing bribes for dogs reluctant to shower off.
Since 1921, Art Cleaners' meticulous wardrobe washers have been giving stains and blemishes the boot with a full roster of dry-cleaning, laundry, and alterations services. Today, they harness the cleansing power of the GreenEarth cleaning system, which eschews harmful petroleum-based solvents in favor of liquid silicone derived from pure, natural sand. This eco-friendly solution thoroughly but gently expunges stains and grime from all types of clothing and furniture fabric before dissolving back into its natural states—water, carbon dioxide, and sand. Like a skunk that's studied Emily Post's Etiquette, it leaves behind no odor. The staff at Art Cleaners also picks up and delivers clients' laundry for free within Boulder County.
