Lowe’s is committed to enhancing the economic growth of its diverse and small business suppliers. EarthKind, a member of the National Women’s Business Council, is one of those suppliers, and is guided by a simple idea, “Preserve the good. Prevent the rest.” They practice what they preach. EarthKind’s pest control products use all natural ingredients, sourced from family farms in the U.S.
“We partnered with EarthKind because it provides our customers with natural alternatives in the pest prevention market, and its hiring practices positively impact the communities we serve,” Lowe’s Director of Corporate Sustainability Chris Cassell said.
EarthKind strongly focuses on workforce diversity and inclusion. Approximately 20 percent of its workforce has a disability; EarthKind provides those employees with fulfilling long-term jobs that take advantage of their abilities.
Founder and CEO Kari Warberg Block said. “When people are happy in their work, it makes for a happy world, a happy family and a happy community. Developmentally disabled people need that just as much as we do if not more.”
It’s a relationship that exemplifies how Lowe’s is committed to serving customers by doing much more than selling products.
