A Greener Tomorrow

 
 
Purchasing from local store, co-ops and independent distributor allows you to follow the delivery route your products take to you. Did you realize that purchasing from the #1 health and wellness company, Shaklee, is a great way to do this and support your local economy?

Shaklee is Climate Neutral(c)-certified, meaning that every step of the way, from harvest to manufacturing to package delivery is certified to not give off excess carbon into the atmosphere. Products are sustainably sourced, tested at two points in manufacturing for 386 chemicals, and minimally packaged to further reduce waste and pollution.

"Investing" your purchases with a local Shaklee distributor who you shares your concern for the environment allows you to control the carbon chain of your purchases. It also invests your money in the local economy, as it supports a local entrepreneur. That entrepreneur is active in connecting with and supporting other local enterprises in the area, as well as supporting their family while working from home.
 
 
I had the pleasure this morning of speaking with a group on new mothers about the toxins in our cleaning products. It's tough, because as moms, especially new moms, we're already worried about everything and don't need one more layer of fear added to our lives, so I printed up a list taken straight from Sloan Barnett's Everything Goes With Green .

Seeing these adorable children crawling around (and yet somehow able to resist the call of another baby so far!) reminded me why it's so important that we prepare the world for them. They don't know what they're eating, and we can't always tell what they're eating, either.  Clorox goes so far as to tell us we can soak the toys that babies mouthe in water and bleach!

I have attached the file here so you can read it at your leisure. Again, it is taken completely from the book - I admit that I copies all of it, but I'm sure Mrs. Barnett would understand the importance of getting the word out there.
