Earth Day Should Be Every Day

At NorwexMovement.com We Love Earth Day!

In fact, we believe every day should be Earth Day! After all, members like you are making small, conscious choices every single day to help create a better world.

So what better opportunity than Earth Day to applaud the actions you’re taking at home, in your car, at work, with your kids—all those little changes are collectively adding up to have a big impact! You’re living more sustainably to help conserve resources. You’re reducing chemicals in your homes. Forgoing that plastic straw. Recycling! And we love you for it!

Kudos to you, Movement members!

We want you to know that you are not alone. Our home office team here at corporate headquarters is right there with you. Recently we polled our internal staff to ask which planet-friendly organizations they support or admire (in addition to Norwex Movement) that are helping to make the world just a little better. So today, we bring you the results of our internal poll and invite you to share your favorites too.
