EarthKind®, makers of naturally smarter® no-kill pest deterrents Fresh Cab® and Stay Away® is expanding its commitment to innovation, education, and maximizing the benefits of a global community working in harmony with nature by partnering with 1% for the Planet. Working together is the next exciting step for the brand to continue its 15-year legacy of creating purpose-driven change through sustainable business in every way; environmentally, economically, socially, educationally, and politically.

“Commercializing insect and rodent control solutions that work in harmony with nature has been our contribution to creating the change we want to see in the world,” commented Kari Warberg Block, Founder, and CEO, of EarthKind®. “We have proven that it is possible to safely and effectively control pests, reduce toxic pesticides, and prevent expensive property damage through plant-based innovation, eco-education, and partnering with stakeholders who believe in taking an earth-kind approach.”

“By joining 1% for the Planet, EarthKind® is united with a network of businesses and individuals who are driven to support actionable solutions to our current environmental crises. We’re thrilled to begin displaying the 1% for the Planet logo on our packaging and promotions at partnering retailers like Lowe’s, Target, Grove, Hive, and many more,” Warberg Block concluded.

For Kari Warberg Block, education and innovation were the keys to her business success—and the same is essential for future generations, too. Because of this, she created a K-12 education program celebrating 2021’s Year of the Monarch: The Harmony Hero Award. Each month, a board of entomologists, scientists, and conservationists nominated a K-12 teacher committed to offering hands-on programming that connected students with nature and protected the monarch butterfly- an iconic symbol for environmental health. The chief goal of Harmony Heroes was to promote trailblazers in eco-education and to share their stories. A hands-on education of children not only improves their math and science skills and social and emotional intelligence but also fosters their desire to create positive change for the Planet. “Kids are the inventors of our future,” Warberg Block says, “so it’s the teachers who need our support.”
