I am proud to represent a company -- Shaklee Corporation -- that has been a leader in environmental stewardship since 1956. Dr. Forrest Shaklee was a man ahead of his time with a keen love and respect for the powers of nature. He believed in and taught the absolute necessity for man to protect our environment. Click here to hear Dr. Shaklee describe his mission in his own words. From creating one of the first biodegradable cleaners (Basic H) in 1960, which was later chosen as one of the first official Earth Day products, to becoming the first company in the world to earn complete Climate Neutral certification -- offsetting 100% of our carbon emissions -- the company has stayed true to Dr. Shaklee's commitment and for 58 years, has created truly sustainable products for people and the planet -- simply because it is the right thing to do.
We've all heard or seen the phrase, "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle." A slightly different, more powerful version that I prefer is one that I learned from Dr. Wangari Maathai, who frequently spoke to the Shaklee family. "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Respect and Do Not Waste."
