Kari Warberg Block founded EarthKind® and was the first to develop, manufacture, and commercialize plant-based rodent and non-toxic insect repellents for home use. Kari’s first product, Fresh Cab – the first botanical rodent repellent to be safe enough for household use, yet effective enough to meet Federal EPA standards for professional use – was created at her kitchen table. Until Earth-Kind entered the marketplace, 98% of pest control solutions sold were kill methods & poisons.
EarthKind® lauched its Stay Away® brand– for Rodents, Ants, Spiders, Beetles and Moths – in a pouch that holds natural oils that quickly repel – not kill – critters and rodents so they stay out of your home. And, since the products have no known risks associated, they are people, children, pet and earth friendly!
Dana Weinstein created LA Relaxed with a desire to create a clothing line that didn’t sacrifice quality for style, and always kept the environment in mind. She also set out to support local workers and pay fair wages for a job well done. From soft modals to breezy linen flax, each garment is designed to serve the comfort and style of the modern woman while maintaining the highest standards of its practice. All cotton used in her garments is certified organic.
Cyndi Prince created LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls to help others protect their family’s health by providing a natural alternative to toxic dryer sheets. She was determined to use only domestic wool in order to support American sheep farmers and the farming Industry. Cyndi also wanted LooHoo to help support the local economy. Less than 100 miles from the company’s headquarters in Camden, Maine, is a historic wool mill where they get all of their wool which is 100% domestic wool. Wool dryer balls are all natural, sustainable, biodegradable and durable plus they soften our clothes and reduce our dry time.
