While we may be looking forward to all the cozy evenings in our future, we are taking just a minute to recap the wildfire season we had this summer. It was bad, and projections don't see it improving any time soon - mostly due to the climate change situation. We've got a full recap and tips on how you can prepare for next year's wildfire season.

We know, hearing you should clean more often kind of sucks, but the benefits of fewer chemicals that cause problems like infertility and cancer in your body (and your kid's body) might be worth it.
