Shaklee Corporation's CEO Roger Barnett, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Dr Wangari Maathai from Kenya, planted Shaklee's One Millionth Tree today at Shaklee Corp. Headquarters in Pleasanton CA. Shaklee’s One Million Trees, One Million Dreams program has planted enough trees to fill Disneyland 18 times, stated Governor Schwarzenegger. Think of all the people who participated in this program, the lives that have been affected by this program in the past 3 years. Governor Schwarzenegger had praise for Shaklee Natural Supplements since he has known the value of Shaklee Supplements, vitamins, minerals and protein from his body building days!
Roger Barnett stated that in using Shaklee’s Green Eco Friendly super concentrated cleaners, we have saved enough plastic bottles from going to the landfills to go around the earth more 19 times in the past 3 years alone. Shaklee has been green since it was started in 1956 by Dr. Forest Shaklee. Shaklee is about make people and planet healthier. Shaklee is the first company in the world to be Certified Climate Neutral by totally offsetting its carbon footprint.
“You can flourish and do well by doing good at the same time”, according to Roger Barnett. He announced a new campaign to provide an economic opportunity for One Million Americans to become Eco-Entrepreneurs with Shaklee. Shaklee is waiving the entire cost of joining Shaklee for the next 30 days(till mid-May 2009) to help create an income opportunity for One Million People this year, said Barnett. So you can start a Green Business by sharing green and natural and healthy products with friends and family. Dr Shaklee once said that Shaklee might be the last opportunity for the little person to build a business without a lot of money.
Dr. Maathai has been instrumental planting 30 million trees in her home country of Kenya to deal with the de-forestation of the countryside. Her plan not only re-plants much needed trees it also employs women in need of jobs! Dr. Maathai is working with the UN to plant One Billion Trees in the world! She suggests that each individual plant 10(ten) trees in their lifetime. So if you have not planted a tree, now is the time to get started. Dr. Maathai was awarded Shaklee’s First Eco-Entrepreneur of the Year for 2009.
