First Certified Carbon Neutral Company in the World Commits to Planting 10 Million Trees in 10 Years.

Shaklee Celebrates 65 Years of Commitment to People, Planet and Purpose.

PLEASANTON, Calif., April 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As a pioneer in health, nutrition and sustainability for over 65 years, Shaklee's mission is to bring true wellness to the world. Founded by Dr. Shaklee, who invented the first multivitamin in the U.S. over 100 years ago, Shaklee reinvented the nutrition industry by formulating and creating products that are now backed by over 70 patents/pending and 110 published clinical studies. Not only did Shaklee launch the first-ever Earth Day product and first plant-based protein shake, but Shaklee is also the first company in the world to be certified Climate Neutral and totally offset its carbon emissions, resulting in a net zero impact on the environment. To honor Shaklee's anniversary and 20 years of being carbon-neutral, the brand is doubling down on their commitment to the planet with a 10 million trees in 10 years pledge, kicking-off with a week-long tree donation match for all purchases made on Shaklee.com between April 18 and April 24.

"For 65 years, we have been helping millions of people live healthier lives as well as helping families from around the world to earn extra income by providing over $10 billion in commissions, all while taking care of our planet," says Roger Barnett, Chairman and CEO at Shaklee. "Our commitment to the planet started decades ago, including our partnership with the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dr. Wangari Maathai, to plant one million trees. From how we source our ingredients to how we run the company, we always put people and our planet first, and we are excited to be celebrating this 65-year milestone with our 10 Million Trees in 10 Years pledge."

Shaklee products are available through more than two million distributors and on the brand's website: https://us.shaklee.com/
