Plastic Pollution in our Ocean

Plastic is a problem. CBC recently reported that “there are more than 79,000 tonnes of ocean plastic in a 1.6 million square kilometre area of the North Pacific Ocean, often referred to as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. That’s 16 times more than previous estimates.”  Plastic is a material that does not decompose.  It never goes away. It does break down into small pieces, called microplastics (pieces measuring less than 0.5 cm in diameter), which “marine life can consume and potentially die from”.  The Ocean Cleanup Foundation commissioned an expedition in 2015 and found 1.8 trillion pieces of microplastics, including “plastic bottles, containers, packaging straps, lids, ropes and fishing nets… that have been accumulating for decades.” In this CBC article, Marcus Eriksen, founder and research director of the 5 Gyres Institute spoke about how the clean up efforts are important, but “not a solution by itself. ” Eriksen and Laurent Lebreton, lead author of Scientific Reports agree that they “would like to see less single-use plastic as well as a focus on cleaning up beaches and shores, before it makes its way into our oceans.”

What Is Norwex Doing about Plastic?

The truth of ocean plastic pollution is staggering… but, I believe that one household, who makes environmentally-friendly choices, does make a difference in the world. When you add up all our households, we do make a big difference! I am so grateful that Norwex recognizes the impact of plastic and is dedicated to helping people make conscience choices to reduce plastic waste.  This month, Norwex’s “Pitch the Plastic Pack” Customer Special provides sustainable solutions to reduce our need for plastic straws, plastic wrap, plastic produce bags and plastic grocery bags.  Isn’t that AWESOME?  Plus, to celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd, Norwex is giving a couple FREE products with some of the specials!!!

Just like the EnviroCloth is perfect for cleaning surfaces in your home, the Body Pack and Bath Towel are perfect for cleaning and maintaining your skin.

Spring Cleaning Basics

You will be amazed what you can accomplish with an EnviroCloth and a dab of Cleaning Paste. With just the EnviroCloth and water, you can clean all the hard surfaces in your home.  Norwex microfiber has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions.  This cloth is superior because it is made with microfiber that is 1/200th the size of a human hair and there is more than 3 million meters in length of microfiber in each cloth. It is powerful. Use an EnviroCloth with Cleaning Paste to remove rust spots, hard water stains, scuff marks, permanent marker, dirt, grime, soap scum and more. BONUS: When you buy the Spring Cleaning Basics, you will receive an additional FREE EnviroCloth!

Sustainable Sink Set

The kitchen sink is a busy place… from washing dishes and hands, to cleaning produce, to soaking pots and rinsing out the kitchen cloth.  It is great that Norwex has the products to make our sinks sustainable.  The Sink Mats (set of 3) are made of highly-absorbent microfiber and foam that are perfect for placing near the sink to provide a convenient resting place for wet or messy glasses, cups, bottles, toothbrushes and soap dispensers.  They are a perfect “landing pad” for all those wet or sticky objects. The Bottle Brush with EnviroSleeve is a great tool for quickly cleaning bottles, vases, glassware, coffee to-go cups, etc.  The brush is made of flexible and sturdy ThermoPlastic Rubber bristles that do a great job cleaning right to the bottom of your bottle without scratching it.  When paired with an extra-soft EnviroSleeve with Baclock™, it is perfect for delicate items.

Pitch the Plastic Pack

Pitch the Plastic NorwexThis special is packed with sustainability products that can help reduce our consumption of plastic straws, plastic wrap, plastic produce bags and plastic grocery bags. Reducing the use of all these ‘single-use’ plastic products is worth it.  The Produce Bags (set of 3) are made of a washable polyester that don’t leach chemicals, are washable and super durable.  They are the perfect size to bring your produce home, are light enough so your produce can be weighed inside the bag and you can even wash, rinse and store your produce in the bag when you get home. The Reusable Grocery Bag is awesome because it has Baclock™ in the lining, making it the cleanest reusable bag you own.  It is also the perfect size and super durable. The Silicone Lids (set of 2) are constructed with food-grade silicone and are designed to create an airtight seal on food containers.  They keep food fresh, can be used in the microwave and oven (up to 425º F) and won’t hold food odours.  A perfect reusable alternative to plastic wrap and foil.  The Stainless Steel Drinking Straws (set of 4) are a great way to avoid single-use straws because although they are usually recyclable, they don’t usually get recycled. Did you also know? More than 500 million plastic straws are used daily.  They are one of the top 10 debris items ingested by sea life. These straws fit most cups and bottles and even make your drink taste colder… which is perfect for smoothies.  The Norwex Cleaning Brush is the perfect tool to quickly clean out the straws so they are ready to use again. BONUS: When you buy the Pitch the Plastic Pack you will receive a FREE Special Edition Optic Scarf.

Isn’t it amazing that there are sustainable options for the day-to-day choices we make. I empower you to believe that the choices you make do impact the health of our environment.  Even switching from using traditional plastic straws to reusable Stainless Steel Straws would save 38,000 straws from entering the landfill or ocean in your lifetime.

Tis the Season to Host a Norwex Party and Get Rewarded!

Tis the Season to Host a Norwex Party and Get Rewarded!

Tis the season for getting together, sharing time, enjoying each other’s company, celebrating Christmas and the holidays, enjoying the snow and outdoor activities.  It’s a time of shopping and thinking of how to bless others. There are lots of wonderful things to do and to prepare for. Are you hosting Christmas this year? Do you need to restock your cleaning supplies and freshen your cleaning cloths? Or maybe you want a fun reason to get your friends together and get some of your Christmas shopping done at the same time? Norwex has a beautiful line of natural cleaning products that will allow you to get your home ready for Christmas in an eco-friendly, green-clean way.

Give a gift that will be enjoyed for MANY years to come!!  Norwex offers 50% of their product line… for under $25!!!  

Host a party in December and choose your festive style… we’ll make it a FUN night out:

  • Delores’s Must Haves… just like the Oprah Show!!  (ask me for details)
  • Spa Party… everyone will soak their feet, experience the Olive Oil Salt Scrub… along with other relaxing products!

The Norwex Host Rewards Program is extremely generous, I often refer to it as a 4-Star Rewards Program.  For the month of December it is actually a 5-STAR Rewards Program (There is a BONUS reward!). Keep reading and I will explain how the rewards program works.

Norwex Host Rewards December 2017

Host Rewards – CDN – PDF    Host Rewards – US – PDF

Norwex Host Reward #1

The first reward is a variety of different green clean, environmentally-friendly, easy-to-use Norwex products. Let me highlight a few that are available for hosts in December. Click on the highlighted products for more information and images.

Travel Pack, set of 4 with Baclock™ – Seriously, think of these as wipes… to go. They are smaller versions of the EnviroCloth and still work to clean hands, little faces, a stain of our your dress, etc.  When you are out and about, these little cloths can be a life saver.

Veggie and Fruit Scrub Cloth – Did you know that many of our fruits and veggies contain most of their vitamins in the peel? When we remove the peel, we remove the best part of the fruit. The Norwex Veggie and Fruit Scrub lets you scrub and polish your produce with one cloth — a rough side for scrubbing away dirt and pesticide residue and a smooth side for drying and polishing your produce.  Did you know that a kiwi has more vitamin C than an orange and more potassium than a banana… mostly found in the peel? Most of us don’t enjoy the fuzzy peel but if you use the rough side of the Scrub Cloth and knock those little hairs off your kiwi before adding them to your morning smoothy — you will reap the benefits of the peel, while still eating a well-cleaned beautiful fruit.

If you don’t want to feed your family food contaminated with pesticides, the EWG Shopper’s Guide helps you make smart choices, whether you’re buying conventional or organic produce,” said Sonya Lunder, an EWG senior analyst.

Read the EWG’s 2017 Dirty Dozen post to find out what produce is best for your family.

Microfiber Variety Pack with Baclock™ – A brilliant little pack.  It consists of a sample of my top-3 selling cloths; including an EnviroCloth, a Window Cloth and a Body Pack Cloth.  They are a smaller version of the original cloths and are perfect for travelling or as a gift for someone.  Think about it, you can remove your makeup, clean your face, clean the surfaces around you and polish any finger prints you come across, all in one little pack.  I love suggesting this pack to those who want to try Norwex cloths.

Square Silicone Bakeware Lid – Perfect for this time of year, when baking and leftovers are in abundance.  They replace plastic wrap by creating a perfect seal on your glassware, ceramic, and most other bowls. They are better than plastic wrap as they are reusable (do you ever reuse or recycle your plastic?), they are made from foodgrade silicone that doesn’t leach chemicals into your food and they can be used in the microwave and oven. The only problem… they don’t crinkle when you steal a Christmas cookie (or 2) after dinner, so no one will stop you. Did you know that plastic never biodegrades? Every piece of plastic wrap we use will be around forever.

Bathroom Scrub Mitt with Baclock™ – This is a bathroom must-have! It has a scrubby side to remove soap scrum, grime, hard-water stains and toothpaste residue, Turn it over for a fluffy side that is super absorbent that quickly wipes surfaces areas clean, drawing the particles of dirt and grime up into the cloth.  It scrubs, cleans and polishes all in one cloth. It has Baclock™, the micro silver agent in the cloth that works to self-purify, it can be used with Norwex’s Blue Diamond, Cleaning Paste or Descaler, and it can be laundered with your other Norwex cloths.

Vintage Body Pack with Baclock™ – Pure luxury for your face and body.  These cloths are soft and perfect for all types of skin but cleans with just water and even removes your makeup (no chemicals required). Use with warm water and enjoy the soft microfibers on your face as they gently remove oils, makeup, environmental gunk, while helping you maintain the balance of delicate skin.

Looking for the Perfect Bridal Shower?

Looking for the Perfect Bridal Shower?

You don’t marry someone you can live with – you marry the person who you cannot live without. – Unknown

Are you or someone you love getting married this summer?  Do you want to bless the bride-to-be with a shower to help set up her home in a way that will create a safe haven?  Whether the bride-to-be has never heard of Norwex or she already loves Norwex products and can’t wait to stock up her new home… a Norwex bridal shower is always a great choice.  I have helped set up their home with Norwex products that they will love and use for 10+ years to come!

Getting together with friends and family to celebrate an upcoming wedding is always soooooo much fun, so much excitement, so many hopes & dreams, and such a great time help brides-to-be set up her home so that it is free from unnecessary chemicals to create safe place for her new family to live and grow.

When I started my Norwex business in 2006, in the greater Edmonton area, I met many people who had never heard of Norwex. Often their young daughters would hang out during the party, watch and learn how to clean their home. It is amazing to teach people about Norwex, because it is a radically different way of cleaning homes.  It is chemical-free, uses green clean methods that actually work, saves time and saves money.  Now, 11 years later, nothing brings me more JOY than helping the daughters of the individuals I first met and help them set up their homes.  This generation truly cares about their environment and believe that they can make a difference.  They are also busier than ever and need quick solutions to keep their homes clean. Some of these daughters are lucky enough to have always cleaned with Norwex… so they have their favourite products and a long wish list for their bridal party.

How does a Norwex Bridal Party work?

Whether it is a request of the bride-to-be or a surprise shower, she will be able to stock her new home with LOTS of free product! So the bride-to-be needs to make herself a Wish List (this can happen during the party or before).

The bride-to-be earns free product through the generous hosting rewards:

  1. Everyone who attends the party can purchase product for themselves… just like any regular party.
  2. Invite friends and family who live near or far across the country to place an order.

The Norwex Host Rewards increases as the amount of total guest sales, the number of buying guest, and the number of new party bookings increase.  When family come together to shower the bride-to-be, the Norwex reward program will also supply her with free product to compliment the gifts she receives.  Every month the host rewards change; check out April  host rewards to get an idea of what she will receive.

Options for blessing the bride-to-be: 

  1. Friends and family can add anything off the bride-to-be’s wish list onto their orders… as a gift!
  2. Friends and family can bless the bride-to-be by placing cash or a cheque into an envelope to help her purchase anything on her wish list!

*** Remember that each purchase increases the bride-to-be’s host rewards!!!

What will the party be like?
Feel free to plan the party to suit the bride-to-be!  There will be a time of teaching about Norwex; it is fun, short and interactive. There will also be time required to place orders and get that organized. But the sky is the limit to how you plan the shower.  Whether you serve elegant wine and hors d’oeuvres or have a more casual gathering with drinks and finger foods… a Norwex Shower will certainly be a blessing.
The bride-to-be is always THRILLED with all her FREE product.  Once a home is set up with Norwex… they are set up for years to come!  Seriously, my mop is over 11 years old!!  Norwex products save time, money, our health and the environment.  I can’t think of a better gift than that!  Contact me today to set up your bridal party!

Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile. – Franklin P. Jones

Are you moving into a new home?  Consider having a Norwex housewarming  party!  You will earn all the host rewards and make your new home a safe haven.
