As many of you know, earthkind® is committed to clearing the cloud of toxic chemicals this year. Each month, we’ll be bringing you tips on ways you can #ClearTheCloud to remove toxic chemicals from your home and replace them with natural alternatives.

Over the last five weeks, during our #PlayForPets campaign, we’ve focused on our furry friends, because our cats and dogs are as sensitive to chemicals as we are.
