When We Plant Trees, We Plant the
SEEDS OF PEACE
AND THE SEEDS OF HOPE.
We aso secure the FUTURE
OF OUR CHILDREN.
Dr. Wangari Maathai,
2004 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
At Shaklee, we’re a part of a movement to make people and the planet healthier. Inspired by the visionary works of 2004 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dr. Wangari Maathai and her Green Belt Movement, Shaklee began a tree-planting campaign across the United States and Canada in April 2006, encouraging the company’s 750,000 Members and Distributors to organize tree-planting events at the grass roots level in their respective communities.
With Dr. Maathai acting as the Global Ambassador for our A Million Trees. A Million Dreams™ campaign, Shaklee has set a goal to plant over one million trees throughout North America.
“Trees clean the earth. They clean the air. I am really happy that Shaklee is involved in this fantastic planting campaign. We will join them. We will be together.”
– Dr. Wangari Maathai
