Today we donated to a local nonprofit,My Block, My Hood, My City. We've been reading about a lot of good things they've been up to during the pandemic and wanted to give money to a Black-founded organization that focuses on direct, positive activity and building connections between neighbors here in Chicago.
Earlier this year, Kind Earth Alliance came by our warehouse (when that was still a thing) and interviewed us about our products.
I spoke to Kind Earth Alliance (KEA) personally about the inspiration behind our brand, how we differ from commercial cleaning brands and our general business philosophies.
You can check it out the entire podcast here on the KEA site or on Soundcloud.
