Take control of your health before it takes control of you–and your finances



There are simple preventative measures you can take now to help you stay healthy in the future. As part of our commitment toward a better, healthier tomorrow, we'll help you every step of the way with useful tips and product suggestions. One area that many people have problems with is blood sugar level. Diabetes is fast becoming a major health threat to so many and much of it has to do with our diet.

Read below for five tips to retaining a normal blood sugar level1) Achieve a healthy weight
In a properly functioning body, insulin, a hormone made by your pancreas, helps transport glucose into the cells of the body so it can be use for energy. However, in overweight individuals, cells of the body can become resistant to insulin's action. One of the best ways to retain normal blood sugar levels is to achieve a healthy weight. Try the
Cinch® Inch Loss Plan, an effective and clinically tested† program powered by leucine, an amino acid that helps preserve your muscle while you lose body fat.

2) Eat foods with a low glycemic index
When you're constantly on the run, it's easy to forget about giving your body the proper nutrition it needs. You may find yourself reaching for a bag of cookies, which most likely have a high glycemic index (GI), meaning the carbohydrates in those cookies are quickly broken down to glucose and released into the bloodstream. This quick release can then lead to a sharp rise in blood sugar, followed by a sharp drop in blood sugar leaving you with feelings of low energy. Help retain normal blood sugar levels by eating foods that have a low GI.
Cinch® Shakes and Meal-in-a-Bars are a great alternative because they taste great, fill you up and give your body the sustained energy it needs.

3) Enhance your health
So, you’re at a healthy weight and your blood sugar is where you want it to be. What else? How about the health of your heart, brain, digestive system, and other body parts? Keep the healthy momentum going and remember to take your vitamins and minerals on a daily basis.
Shaklee Vitalizer™ is the perfect supplement for daily nutritional support. Its 80 bio-optimized, clinically proven nutrients that enhance immunity, protect your DNA, and help manage your stress. It contains more than 20 antioxidant compounds and essential vitamins and minerals you need for a comprehensive approach to health, wellness, and vitality.*
4) Additional botanical support
Certain minerals and botanicals have been scientifically shown to help retain normal blood sugar levels. These include banaba leaf extract, which helps stimulate glucose uptake, and chromium, a mineral essential to insulin function.
Shaklee Glucose Regulation Complex® contains these plus other normal blood sugar supporting ingredients including magnesium, vanadium, zinc, taurine, and alpha lipoic acid.*

5) Stay active
Last, but not least, stay active. Try to get in 30 minutes of regular physical activity, such as brisk walking, bicycling or swimming most days of the week. If your busy schedule won't allow that, break your activity into sessions–10 minutes in the morning, 10 in the afternoon, and a short 10 minute walk in the evening. Being more active will not only make you feel good, it will enhance your body's ability to use insulin and help you maintain a healthy weight.

Save Money With Fabric Softener

Want to know how to save even more money with fabric softener? Try this.

Get a small container with a lid that will hold at least two cups of liquid.
Now take a measuring cup and pour ½ cup of this
Soft Fabric Concentrate into your container.
Next take the same measuring cup and add 1 cup of water to your container.
Now take a washrag that you will dedicate to your laundry as your “laundry sheet”.
Dip the rag in the mixture and squeeze out the extra. It doesn’t have to be squeezed dry – it can drip a little. You just don’t want it running out of the cloth – that would be wasting it.
Now toss it in your dryer with your clothes.

You now have a very inexpensive dryer sheet.
It saves you money and the environment because this
Soft Fabric Concentrate is non toxic and contains no phosphates.
It will not stain your clothes unlike other fabric softeners. And it’s gentle enough even for those who have sensitive skin. Great for baby’s clothes or people with allergies.


You can use a larger container. Just measure one part of fabric softener to two parts of water.

Hope you found this tip helpful. Don’t forget to share this with others.

Soak The Impossible

Think you have a stain on your clothes that is impossible to come out?

Try this solution:

Take the hottest water your garment can handle and in a small tub mix in the following:
¼ cup of this laundry detergent
Fresh Laundry Concentrate
¼ cup of this all fabric brightener Nature Bright
Scrub stain and let soak

The amount of soaking needed to remove the stain may take an hour or hours or it may take days. If it is set in, it may take days of soaking. Every day swish the solution around, scrub the stain and change the water and detergent mixture after three days.

I have let some items soak for more than a week before. These were stains that got by me unnoticed and were set in by the dryer. I just let it soak for as long as it needed and over time the stain lifted!

Try it, I have never had a stain that didn’t come out using this method.

These detergents are biodegradable, contain no phosphates and are great for those who have allergies and sensitive skin. I wash my baby’s clothes in them! And they are so concentrated, they actually save you money!

Let Your Kids Go Fish!



Do you feed your kids fish? Here are some questions to ask yourself about fish.

Do you think it’s not that important to eat fish?
It’s very important, because fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids play a significant role in brain development, IQ levels, immune system and helps kids with behavioral problems like ADHD according to some studies. The two most important omega-3’s are DHA and EPA.
Do you love seafood, but your kids don’t?
Have you tried them recently? Kids tastes change and there are many different ways to fix different fish and shrimp that may appeal to their tastes and yours. Check the Internet for recipes. Shrimp Pizza seems to be a favorite. (just make sure to watch for signs of allergies) And have them help you make it. Kids are more apt to eat something they helped make.

Do you think it’s too much trouble to fix?
How hard are fish sticks to throw in the oven? Now, I would offer more than the breaded and fried version of fish. Have you looked for frozen fish on sale? They don’t take long to bake and no thawing is required. It takes me longer to make the mac and cheese I often serve (along with a veggie of course) than it takes to bake the fish.

Do you think fish isn’t safe to eat because of pollutants?
Well, yes some fish are not safe to eat at all, some are ok to eat once a month or so and some are safe to eat a couple of times a week. Here’s the list of ok fish to eat a couple of times a week. These are low in mercury, PCB’s and are not overfished:
  • Anchovies
  • Catfish (farmed)
  • Clams
  • Cod (Pacific)
  • Crab (U.S.)
  • Crawfish (U.S.)
  • Flounder (Pacific)
  • Mackerel (Atlantic, U.S.)
  • Oysters (cooked)
  • Pollack (Alaskan)
  • Rainbow Trout (U.S. farmed)
  • Salmon (wild Alaskan)
  • Shrimp (U.S.)
  • Tilapia (U.S.)


Here are some OK to eat once a month or so:

  • Halibut (Pacific)
  • Mahi Mahi
  • Sablefish
  • Tuna

Never let your kids eat these. (Not that many of them would eat these kinds!):
  • King mackerel
  • Swordfish
  • Shark
  • Tilefish
  • Eel


Keep in mind, some farmed fish can be more polluted than wild caught fish depending on the ways they are managed. All fish have some contaminants in them, that’s how our world is nowadays unfortunately. All the more reason to change our ways. Beef and chicken are also tainted with pollutants, even the organic meat may have a small amount. So it’s almost impossible not to eat anything without some contamination. We just need to be smart about our choices.


Supplementing with fish oil capsules is also one way to add to your diet the essential fatty acids. If you wish to supplement your diet and your kids diets, make sure the vitamin manufacturer use a purification process that removes the contaminants, but doesn't compromise the essential nutrients. Here are some I recommend and take myself:


For adults:

OmegaGuard & Vita-Lea

For kids: Mighty Smart & Incredivites

For Infants & Toddlers: ShakleeBaby


So don’t overlook fish in your diet. Having smart, healthy kids is worth it.

Vivix - The World’s Best Cellular Anti-Aging Supplement*




The World’s Best Cellular Anti-Aging Supplement*

Would you like to live a longer, healthier life?
Isn’t that everyone’s dream?


Exploring longevity is truly the ultimate scientific quest, and researchers are spending billions of dollars to help us feel younger and live longer. In laboratories around the world, researchers are attempting to learn how to slow down the aging clock.

According to a 2006 study by University of Chicago economists, American life spans increased by 30 years during the 20th century. This improved longevity could be worth more than $1.2 million to each of us. Emerging laboratory research reveals that polyphenols—such as those found in red wine—may be able to influence the cellular aging process in a positive way.

Developed after years of research by Shaklee Corporation, the number one natural nutrition company in the U.S., Vivix Cellular Anti-Aging Tonic is a breakthrough dietary supplement in the fight against cellular aging. In laboratory studies, Vivix ingredients have been shown to impact the four key mechanisms of cellular aging.*
Just one teaspoon a day delivers the equivalent amount of resveratrol found in 100 glasses of red wine, and Vivix ingredients are 10X more powerful in slowing a key mechanism of aging than resveratrol alone.*

Tips for a Safe and Happy Summer





Summer's back—and so is fun in the sun! But before you hit the beach or stage a friendly water gun fight in your backyard, keep in mind that ultraviolet rays from the sun can do a number on your skin; in fact, they are the most common cause of premature aging. Here are some simple ways you can protect yourself—and your loved ones—and still have fun in the sun.


Reduce Sun Eposure During Peak Hours
UV rays are strongest and most dangerous between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., so the less time you spend outdoors during these hours, the better. That doesn't mean you have to ditch out on all the fun. For instance, instead of heading out to the pool at 2 p.m., wait a few hours and go at 5 p.m. The sun will still be up and there'll be plenty of light out. And don't be fooled on an overcast day—you can still get burned because up to 80% of the sun's UV rays can penetrate through the clouds. If you can, stay in the shade.


Cover Up
Be fashionably smart. Wear protective clothing that covers as much of your body as possible. Remember to cover your hair and head with a wide-brimmed hat. You might even consider carrying an umbrella for shade. The more protection you have the better off your skin will be.


Protect Your Eyes
Always wear sunglasses. Not only are they great for complementing your wardrobe, they also deflect harmful UV rays that reflect off of water, sand, and other surfaces. This helps reduce the risk of cataracts and other eye conditions. And, you won't have to squint!


Apply Sunscreen Generously
Don't be shy. Apply a liberal amount of sunscreen evenly on all areas of the skin—and don't forget your lips, nose, ears, neck, hands, feet, and head (if necessary). Do so at least 20 minutes prior to sun exposure and remember to re-apply every two hours, especially after swimming.


And Arm Yourself with Antioxidants!
What's the big deal? Environmental assaults such as sunlight, pollution, stress, and even normal metabolism produce free radicals in our bodies, that can damage cells, alter DNA, and cause skin to age prematurely. Phytonutrients such as carotenoids and flavonoids—antioxidants found in fruits, vegetables, and plants—combat these free radicals and protect your body against cellular damage. So be sure to include lots of antioxidants in your diet. Your skin—and your overall health—will thank you.


Shaklee Products Can Help You All Summer Long
In addition to providing broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection, clinically proven Enfuselle® sunscreens contain triple-patented Vital Repair+ ® complex—a synergistic blend of seven targeted antioxidants that produces results much greater than the sum of each ingredient alone. In other words, it protects against premature older-looking skin. Plus, all Enfuselle products are paraben-free. Keep these at home and in your beach bag:

Feel good every morning with this five-in-one clinically proven formula that meets all your skin's daytime needs for renewal, recovery, moisture, nourishment, and protection. Nonirritating and hypoallergenic, Time Repair A.M. SPF 15 also contains botanical photo-brighteners to improve skin color.






This clinically proven sensitive-skin formula filters out the sun's harsh UVA and UVB rays to protect against sun damage. The triple-patented Vital Repair+ complex adds extra protection against prematurely older-looking skin by neutralizing harmful free radicals. Oil free and easy to apply.





Drenched with vitamins C and E, as well as calendula extract and moisturizing plant oil, this nourishing lip treatment softens vulnerable and dry lips, smoothes the appearance of vertical lines, and prevents peeling and chapping. The broad-spectrum SPF protects against UV-induced collagen breakdown.


Supplement Wisely—Be Sure to Get Your Daily Serving of Antioxidants

People usually consume only a fraction of the phytonutrients they should on a daily basis. Many potent phytonutrients are found in parts of the plants that we commonly discard, such as peels and seeds. Shaklee FlavoMax® and CarotoMax®;contain 12 of the most beneficial phytonutrients—six carotenoids and six flavonoids—to help promote optimal health.*

• They help support*:• Long-term health of the eyes, heart, skin, lungs, prostate and cervix• A strong immune system• Proper circulatory and cardiovascular function.
CarotoMax and FlavoMax contain the phytonutrient power of more fruits and vegetables than you could possibly eat in one day – delivered in a convenient and potent supplement form. 100%guaranteed for purity, potency and efficacy

Vitamin D Linked To HDL Cholesterol


Shaklee Corporation Research Suggests an Important Role of Vitamin D for Supporting Cardiovascular Health


PLEASANTON, Calif. – May 19, 2009 – Research supported by Shaklee Corporation, the number one natural nutrition company in the U.S., shows that a lower blood vitamin D level is associated with metabolic syndrome and other risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

The study results were presented at the National Lipid Association Annual Scientific Sessions in Miami, Florida and suggest an important role of vitamin D nutrition for maintaining cardiovascular health.

“I am so proud to be associated with a company whose heritage has always been about improving people’s health and well-being. It’s very exciting that Shaklee has helped to bring this important research to the world. The findings may have significant public health implications related to new understanding about benefits related to vitamin D supplementation.”

In this study, intake of vitamin D from dietary supplements was strongly linked with vitamin D levels in the blood. The greater the intake of vitamin D from dietary supplements, the higher the amount of vitamin D found in the blood. More importantly, as vitamin D intakes increased, HDL cholesterol (or “good cholesterol”) levels increased as well. Future research is needed to determine if vitamin D from dietary supplements can lower risk levels for metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease.

“Our next study, which is already underway, is intended to confirm causality by showing that vitamin D supplementation improves cardiovascular risk factors,” says Dr. Jamie McManus M.D., Chairman of Medical Affairs, Health Sciences and Education, Shaklee Corporation.

Kevin C. Maki, PhD, the study’s Principal Investigator and the Chief Science Officer of Provident Clinical Research, Glen Ellyn, IL, says, “Results from population studies suggest that a low serum vitamin D concentration is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular mortality, but this is the first study to evaluate the relationship between vitamin D status and cardiovascular risk factors in a group that includes a large number of vitamin D supplement users.” He continues, “Additional research is warranted to assess whether increasing vitamin D intake will improve the metabolic cardiovascular risk factor profile.”

Just In Time For Father’s Day –
Men’s Health Pack


NATURE’S ANSWER TO A MAN’S SPECIAL HEALTH NEEDS




THE CHALLENGE

Men face many health challenges. Such challenges can be high blood cholesterol and high blood pressure, which in turn can also lead to heart disease and stroke. In fact, heart disease is the number one cause of death of American men, while stroke is the third leading cause of death. Men must also contend with possible prostate enlargement that can affect urinary flow.
Fortunately, there are steps that men can take to help maintain good health.
Eating a diet low in fat and cholesterol, exercising regularly, maintaining a
healthy weight and dietary supplementation are active steps men can take to
promote overall health.


SHAKLEE MEN’S HEALTH PACK


The Shaklee Men’s Health Pack utilizes a unique blend of natural ingredients to:
_ Promote heart health*
_ Improve arterial health*
_ Support overall prostate health*
_ Promote healthy urinary flow.*


WHO MIGHT BENEFIT FROM SHAKLEE MEN’S HEALTH PACK?


Men who:
_ Want to maintain heart health*
_ Are concerned about retaining normal cholesterol and blood pressure*
_ Who consume a diet high in fat
_ Are concerned with prostate health.*


WHAT’S IN MEN’S HEALTH PACK?


For both prostate fitness and heart health, Shaklee Men’s Health addresses
a man’s special health needs.* The Shaklee Men’s Health Pack contains one
bottle of
OmegaGuard and one bottle of Saw Palmetto Complex.


OmegaGuard (Take 3 capsules one or two times daily with meals.)

  • Rich in omega-3 fatty acids to optimize heart health*
  • Clinically tested to effectively raise blood levels of EPA and DHA, two essential omega-3 fatty acids recommended by the America Heart Association
  • Formulated from the oil of cold-water fish—the best source for omega-3 fatty acids
  • Consumption of omega-3 fatty acids, like those found in cold-water fish and Essential Omega-3 Complex, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease†



Omega-3 Fatty Acids— eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – Polyunsaturated fats, specifically the omega-3s, were first recognized as important to human health in the 1970s. Scientists discovered that the Inuit Eskimos of Greenland had a diet that was very high in fat, yet they suffered far fewer chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease. Further study revealed that their diet of whale, seal, and salmon provided benefits that reduce the risk of such disease.


Saw Palmetto Complex (Take 1 softgel twice daily)

  • Created from the finest standardized saw palmetto berry extract
  • Contains 85% to 95% fatty acids and sterols
  • Has pumpkin seed oil, enriched sources of beta-sitosterol, and otherphytosterols, ingredients found to support prostate health*
  • Helps maintain proper urinary flow*



Saw Palmetto Berry Extract
– For centuries, the aborigines of Florida consumed saw palmetto fruit. It eventually became a staple food in the diets of native Americans in the Southeastern states. The Indian medicine men also used saw palmetto to treat the prostate and as a general tonic to nourish the body.


WHY CHOOSE THE SHAKLEE MEN’S HEALTH PACK?


  • Offers natural support for heart and prostate health*
  • Created specifically to address men’s health concerns
  • Developed with the Shaklee Guarantee of impeccable quality, and thoroughly tested and proven for potency and purity.


Shaklee Men’s Health Pack combines two complementary products, designed specifically to address a man’s most important health concerns.
Together this all-natural “dream team” helps maintain cardiovascular health, prostate
fitness, and urinary flow.*

May Shaklee Newsletter

May is all about moms. But you don’t have to be just a mom to be a special woman. That is why May is about all women not just moms. It’s about grandmothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, nieces, cousins and friends. Think about all the women in your life and how they have shaped your life.

This month we would like to highlight women’s health. Women take care of so many people, but often times they get so overbooked taking care of others, they never seem to have time to take care of their selves. Help the women in your life (and help yourself, too) by making sure they take care of themselves.
Here are a few guidelines that we all know, but may need a reminder:


1 - Kick the Stress
Most of us experience stress every day. Daily stress and anxiety wreak havoc with our sense of well-being and the impact of prolonged stress can have severe consequences on our health.
In fact, the Centers for Disease Control estimates 75-90% of all visits to the doctor's office are stress related. One key to good health is to keep levels of stress in check.

Get started by:
Identifying Your Stressors — Whether it's money issues, traffic or the piles of laundry, the first step to managing stress is knowing what's causing the most stress in your life. Once identified, you can begin to figure out how to overcome stress or manage it better. So what’s bugging you?

Setting Priorities — Take stock to determine what's really important and learn to say "no". This can be one of the biggest favors you can do for yourself. You can’t do it all, so choose what is most important to you and learn to let the rest go.

Delegating Responsibilities — You don't have to be "supermom", learn to ask for help and assign tasks to other family members. The best “managers” are those who know how to delegate. Teaching kids about responsibilities is also good for them, not just to help you out. You are not helping them any by doing everything for them.

Relaxing and Meditating - Research has shown that taking time out of each day to relax and meditate can help reduce stress. This is so true. Taking just a few minutes a day to just sit and relax; breathe deep and empty your overcrowded brain can do wonders for your mood. Even if it means locking yourself in the bathroom with earplugs.

Exercise – Don’t forget the benefits of exercise. See our tip on exercise below.

Try Shaklee’s
Stress Relief Complex*, a botanical combination which includes a powerful stress reliever from green tea to help promote relaxation, alertness and concentration, and help relieve everyday stress in as little as 30 minutes.* This stuff works great.

2 - Get Enough Sleep

Emerging scientific evidence indicates that insufficient sleep can be harmful to our health.

Sleep Well and Re-energize - Maintain a regular bed and wake time schedule; establish a relaxing bedtime routine; and try not to eat a meal, drink alcohol or caffeinated beverages or exercise within a few hours of bedtime. There is nothing like a good night’s rest to help with your day. It can be hard though when there are so many things on your mind. Try meditation, reading and hey, here’s an idea! - talking with your spouse! Just keep the talks light, nothing stressful.


To contend with occasional sleeplessness and to help you get a good night's rest, try Shaklee Gentle Sleep Complex* which uses natural botanicals to promote a calm and restful sleep.

3 - Eat Right

Good nutrition is essential to health and poor food choices contribute to health challenges including weight gain. Start by improving your diet by eating a variety of foods, choosing whole grains, beans and legumes and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Don't forget to include some lean protein from fish, chicken, soy and nonfat dairy and select heart-healthy omega-3 fats from fish, avocado and nuts.

It’s hard to eat right everyday and who has time to cook a big meal every day? So to help fill in the gaps don’t forget your multivitamin. Shaklee has one for all ages and a good solid foundation is what you want to start with.

For women of child bearing years and teens –
Vita-Lea with Iron
For men or postmenopausal women – Vita-Lea without Iron
For men and women over 50 – Vita-Lea Gold with vitamin K and Vita-Lea Gold without vitamin K
For kids – Vita-Lea Chewable for kids ages 4-12
For Infants – Vita-Lea Infant Mix for children ages 6 months to 4 years

4 - Exercise

No brainer here. We all know that exercise is a healthy habit and it's never too late to start. You don’t have to train for a marathon to feel good. Just a 30 minute workout can boost your mood and you can literally kick stress out of the way. Walking is a great activity for everyone, too. Start with a 10 or 15-minute walk, especially if you haven't been exercising regularly. Then do your best to be active every day. Exercise helps lower stress, lose weight and increase strength which helps our stress level too.

Shaklee can help with your exercise program with their sports nutrition products. You don’t have to be just an Olympic athlete to reap the benefits from:

Stay hydrated with
Performance Maximum Endurance Sports Drink
Build muscle and recover faster with Physique

5 - Take a "Timeout" with Friends
A landmark UCLA study suggests that hanging out with friends can actually counteract the kind of stress most women experience on a daily basis. When women engage in this 'tending or befriending' with children and other women, studies suggest that the hormone oxytocin is released, which further counters stress and produces a calming effect.

We always knew that friends made us feel good and now there is actual evidence that they are good for our health!
So the next time you need a lift-me-up or simply want to relax, call up your closest group of girlfriends for a fun gathering.




Take care of yourself so you can continue to take care of those you love.

Happy Mother’s Day!!!

April Spotlight - Earth Day

Five Easy Ways To Go Green

Thought going Green was too hard or expensive? It really isn’t and we have five easy ways to do it.
Going green doesn’t need to be difficult or complicated. Even small steps count, and what you do every day can help keep your family and the planet healthy.

In honor of Earth Day which is April 22, 2009, here are some small steps for you that add up to a big impact.

1.) Clean Up Your Cleaning Products
Some conventional cleaning products can contain questionable chemicals like phthalates, butyl cellosolve, sodium hydroxide, ammonia, or formaldehyde. Why would you endanger your health or the health of the planet with harsh chemicals and toxic substances when you can choose natural and healthier alternatives?
Switch to
Get Clean®. Get Clean offers choices that are safe, nontoxic, and natural, and they work wonderfully. Many Get Clean products are formulated using sustainably sourced ingredients from natural sources, like activated enzymes or biodegradable cleaning agents derived from corn and coconuts. When you welcome Get Clean products into your home, you’re not exposing your family to many of the dangerous chemicals found in conventional cleaners.

2.) Start Using your Dishwasher!
Using the dishwasher is actually better for the planet than washing dishes by hand. The average energy-efficient dishwasher uses just 4 gallons of water per cycle, saving nearly 5,000 gallons of water per year compared with hand washing—as well as $40 in energy costs and 230 hours of washing time, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.Make sure to use a phosphate-free detergent. Phosphates spur algae blooms and are a major source of water pollution.
Get Clean Dish Wash Automatic Concentrate is one of the first phosphate-free automatic dish wash detergents.

3.) Ditch the Anti-bacterial Hand Soap

Triclosan, a common ingredient in antibacterial soap that kills microbes, ends up in our water sources and, at specific levels, is acutely and chronically toxic to aquatic life. Moreover, overuse of antibacterial and antimicrobial soap can help create antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which may weaken the effectiveness of currently useful antibiotics. Antibacterial soap doesn’t offer any better protection against illness than vigorous hand washing with plain soap and warm water.
Get Clean Hand Wash Concentrate is a great antibacterial-free alternative. It’s soap free, pH balanced, hypoallergenic, and has biodegradable surfactants.

4.) Bring Your Own Bag

Okay, we’ve all heard this one, but it’s true. Neither paper nor plastic is the ideal choice. Paper is accepted in more recycling programs, but only approximately 20% is recycled, and most bags can end up in landfills. Plastic bags not only can take a thousand years to decompose and but use up nonrenewable resources. The best choice? Bring your own reusable bag. A sturdy, reusable one can take the place of hundreds or maybe even thousands of single-use bags over its lifetime.
Get Clean offers lightweight, sturdy, reusable
shopping bags in a bright green color with the Get Clean logo, so you can spread the word while you shop. Let me tell you, these bags hold a lot and are tough!

5.) Buy from Socially Responsible Companies
Use your consumer power to support companies that are environmentally responsible and offer products that are safe for you and the environment. Shaklee has a long history of environmental responsibility, including introducing one of the first biodegradable cleaners in 1960.Shaklee is the first company in the world to obtain Climate Neutral™ certification and totally offset its greenhouse gas emissions.

That’s it. Not too hard is it? Most people do not need to take giant leaps to help the environment. Small choices made everyday all add up to big changes.
Shaklee can help you save the environment, save your health and save you money all at the same time. Nothing could be greener than that!
