- Shaklee has been going green long before it was cool--1960, in fact, was when Dr. Shaklee first came out with an organic, concentrated cleaner so there would be less packaging and an "all-in-one" cleaner that doesn't pollute your house more than when you started. To give you a hint, I use my h2 for bug repellant, dusting, windows/glass, bathrooms, bubble bath, and many other things!!!
- In 2007, Shaklee became the first company in the world to offset its carbon emissions by providing sustainable energy to electrify villages in Africa in partnership with Millennium Promise.
- In 2006, Dr. Wangari Maathai, winnder of the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize, becomes the Global Ambassador for A Million Trees. A Million Dreams, a Shaklee environmental campaign that raises awareness of global climate change and initiates efforts to plant trees in North America and Africa. To date, they have planted millions and millions and millions of trees...5 more for every Get Clean starter kit purchased!
- In 2000 Shaklee opened its World Headquarters, one of the first green, energy-saving, award-winning buildings designed using sustainable materials, including certified sustainable wood, recycled carpets, and recycled plastics.
There are SO many more things, but this is a little taste! I started just using the cleaning products, but now I use their shampoo/conditioner, vitamins, make-up (minerals), and face regiman! I know I seem like an addict, but I really am sold. I just feel like it's a good choice overall for my family and myself...and the world.
I have recently gotten a website (for at least another 5 months!) so feel free to visit (although the newly launched kids/baby line isn't on there yet!) If you have any questions, please contact me. It really is a good move for everyone! Happy late Earth Day!
