Lowe’s is rolling out EarthKind pallet displays in 1,700 stores across the county. A big achievement for a small brand that stands clean and green against the traditional kill methods that currently make up 90% of all retail DIY pest control.

“Lowe’s is making a serious commitment to diversify its pest control offering for its customers, and I’m proud to be a part of its environmentally conscious corporate policy,” says EarthKind Founder and CEO Kari Warberg Block. “While it has not always been easy, there’s a great deal of satisfaction that comes with knowing you have stuck to your values and got everyone aligned to achieve business success.”

“We knew there was a gap in our set. Kari’s product can supplement the traditional products, or be used by itself,” said Lowe’s Merchandising Manager Jason Miller. “Stay Away® Moths, Rodents and Spiders can be found in-store at Lowe’s next to cleaning, and storage/organization aisles.”

Ciaran Blumenfeld, the blogger behind Momfluential, recently tried Stay Away® Spider from the line of pest prevention products manufactured by EarthKind, Inc. Ciaran lives in Southern California, an area where venomous spiders like the black widow and brown recluse are common, so preventing spiders in the home is vitally important.
