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!!!

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.

Norwex Pitch the Plastic Spend and Get

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.

Host a Norwex Party to Celebrate Earth Day (plus earn a FREE MOP)

earth day free mop host rewards

Did you know that on April 22nd it is Earth Day?  Earth Day Canada “leads an annual Earth Day campaign in conjunction with free, year-round, award-winning programs that get people of all ages outside, interacting with the natural environment — this, in turn, fosters an intrinsically motivated, enduring commitment to stewardship and conservation.” Earth Day should not just about the day, but it is a springboard for making eco-friendly choices all year round. Did you know? Residential dwellings contribute more to global pollution than industry does.  Although this fact is hard to swallow, it also means that we have the power to change our world!!!

Norwex Movement

I love being part of Norwex because it is a Company that promises to create a brighter future for your Family, their Consultants and our PLANET.  Did you know? Norwex has a Norwex Movement, spear-headed by Norwex’s CMO, Amy Cadora. It is committed to joining together to create a chemical-free environment by making small, conscious choices and becoming educated about our world.  The Norwex Movement accomplished their first goal to donate to a non-profit, community-based organization “Washed Ashore” whose mission is to educate and raise awareness about marine debris and plastic pollution through art. Read more about “Washed Ashore” here. I have learned so much from being a member of the Norwex Movement and I encourage you to join this worthy movement.

A great way to start your environmentally-friendly journey (or continue along) is to host a Norwex Party.  It is a great opportunity to gather friends and family to learn about all-natural cleaning/personal products, learn methods to reduce your cleaning time by 75%, learn how to reduce the amount you spend on cleaning products and have the opportunity to earn FREE Norwex product.

Norwex Host Rewards

The Norwex Host Rewards Program is fabulous and incredibly generous.  The rewards change every month (THIS MONTH IS MOP MONTH… WooHoo!) and there is the opportunity to earn lots of FREE product.  I call it the 4 STAR Rewards or 4 ways to earn FREE Product and they are all based on 3 criteria: Amount of Guest Sales, Number of Buying Guests and Number of New Bookings.  If you have always wanted the Superior Mop Collection (worth more than $125.99 and includes both the large and small bases), you want to reduce your environmental footprint in this world, while improving your quality of life, keep reading and host a party!

Earth Day Norwex Host Rewards

*1   More Buying Guests = More FREE Product

The first reward is all about the Number of Buying Guests!  Invite everyone you know… the more, the better. Hosts are sometimes nervous about the number of guests who will attend.  But don’t worry, I always suggest inviting all your family and friends, from near and far (Norwex ships right to your door).  It is a gift to invite those you love… a gift of improving their quality of life by learning how to clean without chemicals.

The beauty of the Host Free Dollars is that you get to choose your own reward (products).  I suggest you write yourself a Wishlist of products to fulfill this reward.

Let me highlight a few products:

Slate Norwex Napkins with Baclock™

These are a relatively new product that address the need for less disposable products like napkins.  Did you know? On average, a family of 4 uses more than 3000 paper napkins per year. That is a lot of paper.  Norwex Napkins are constructed of microfiber with their exclusive Baclock™ technology, plus they are made from 50% recycled materials or the equivalent of 5 – 500 ml plastic bottles to help clean up our environment. These napkins are convenient, have self-cleaning properties and are reusable!!!

Norwex Kitchen Scrub Cloth

This checkerboard patterned Kitchen Scrub Cloth is specifically designed to tackle hard-to-clean jobs in the kitchen… like dirty pots and baked-on food. It is also tough enough for cleaning the bathroom… perfect for removing stubborn soap scum and grime from the bathroom surfaces.  The special blend of nylon and Norwex’s microfiber does not scratch surfaces, not even teflon or tile. If you like it in the kitchen, consider getting a second one for your bathrooms.

Norwex Kitchen Cloth

This is the best tool to maintain all the hard floor surfaces in your home. It is one of my top-selling products because it cleans your floor quick and easy without chemicals. When your party sells $550, you will receive the Telescopic Mop Handle, Small Mop Base, Small Wet Mop Pad with Baclock™ and a Small Dry Superior Mop Pad for FREE.  When your party sells $750 you will receive the Large Mop Base, Large Wet Mop Pad with Baclock™ and Large Dry Superior Mop Pad.  The Large Mop Pad is perfect for large living spaces in your home and the Small Mop Pad is perfect for smaller areas like your camping trailer or even if you are cleaning your bathroom floors.

Norwex Mop System Info

You now know that residential dwellings contribute to global pollution more than industry does.  That piece of information gives me another reason, besides my family’s health, to choose eco-friendly cleaning products. The Host Rewards makes filling your home with safe, efficient, non-toxic products easy. This April, host a Norwex Party, earn a Free Mop and start a fantastic Earth Day tradition.

What do you do on Earth Day? Let me know in the comments.

Norwex Customer Specials January 2018

Norwex Bathroom CleanerSwirl & Shine

This special will equip you with what you need to clean all the surfaces in your bathroom!  The sink, countertop, tub, shower, even the toilet, everything but the mirror! The Blue Diamond All-in-One Bathroom Cleaner works perfectly with a damp EnviroCloth to clean it all without corrosive fumes or harsh chemicals. It cleans and descales in one application, effectively removing dirt and stains and leaving the surfaces shiny.  For your toilet, simply squirt a light stream of Blue Diamond in the bowl area and disperse it around the bowl and under the rim with the Ergonomic Toilet Brush. Let sit for 3 – 5 minutes, then flush clean.

 

Did you know? ‘Scale’ or calcium carbonate is the milky white substance that collects around faucets and drains because of mineral deposits left by hard water. This build up is usually difficult to remove without abrasive cleaners. Norwex’s Blue Diamond is non-abrasive and uses natural organic salts and citric acid  to effectively remove hard water stains without damaging your surfaces or the environment.

Fun Fact: The Norwex Toilet Brush is constructed of durable ThermoPlastic Rubber (TPR) that is ergonomically designed to reach all the nooks and crannies in your toilet. PLUS, it has an antibacterial agent to help suppress the growth of bacteria and mold to protect the brush.  Isn’t that how all toilet brushes should be?? Antibacterial and Ergonomic? Cheers!

Another FREE Norwex Mop Month for Hosts!

Another FREE Norwex Mop Month for Hosts!

I love my NORWEX MOP!

We have been using the same one in my home for the past 13 years and it is still doing a fine job!!! It is one of my favourite products in the Norwex line up as it harnesses the power of static electricity and water to get your floors completely clean — leaving no chemical residue behind. As a Norwex Host, you are able to take advantage of the Host Rewards Program and receive a variety of efficient, effective, green clean, eco-friendly, natural cleaning products.  The Host Rewards Program is based on three criteria: Total Amount of Guest Sales, Number of Buying Guests and Number of New Bookings.  This month Norwex’s rewards their hosts in 4 different ways…  and these 4 ways can add up to a lot of product, making hosting a party an amazing way to fill your home with Norwex products for free.

The first reward – package of various products – is based all 3 criteria: amount of guest sales, the number of buying guests and the number of new bookings.  Please note that there is FREE SHIPPING for all hosts who reach at least the $350 category!!! Let me highlight a few of my favourite products available this month from each category (if you would like more information, click the highlighted products) …

Veggie and Fruit Scrub Cloth – Summer is the time for all the beautiful berries, pitted fruits and melons.  To make sure your favourites are free from dirt, waxes, debris and pesticide residue, use this two-sided cloth to scrub (with the rough side) and polish (with the smooth side) your fruit and veggies. I love this cloth because it saves me time when I prepare carrots.  Simply scrub your carrots and you will find you don’t need to peel them, which is better, as many nutrients are found in the peel.

Superior Mop Collection – As a host, you have the opportunity to earn a FREE Mop System when your party sells $550, has 3 buying guests and 1 new booking!  In my experience, an average party reaches this level.  Let me share a few facts from Norwex’s product information sheet about why their mop is superior. The Superior Mop includes a Telescopic Mop Handle, making it a perfect size for anyone in your family, just twist the handle and adjust it to fit right under your chin.  The aluminum Mop Base that can be locked into position when you are using it to wash more than your floors, like your windows and walls, it also has a velcro fastener to attach to the Mop Heads making them simple to change as needed. The Large Dry Superior Mop Pad is constructed of Norwex Microfiber and uses static electricity to draw and lift even the tiniest particles into the cloth.  Open spaces in the fibers are created by the splitting process to enable the dry pad to lift dust and debris and allow it to absorb several times its weight in water. The Rubber Brush is perfect to clean the Dry Mop Pad, after mopping the floor, flip the mop upside down over the garbage and brush out the debris. The Large Wet Mop Pad has Baclock™ agent that self-purifies the mop so you can use it more than once before cleaning and leaves your floors perfectly clean and streak free.  I love the mop because it is simple to use, light-weight, and actually cleans your floor without leaving chemicals behind. Do you have a baby or little children at home?  You will love that the floor is ready to play on as soon as it dries and I love that our dog Bentley can lick the floor (if he wants) after I mop and it won’t harm him a bit.

The last product I would like to highlight are the Limited-Edition Aqua & Tangerine EnviroCloths. These beauties are constructed just like the regular-coloured EnviroCloths with Baclock™ agent that goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth in the cloth. These cloths can be used damp to clean any surface that would normally be used cleaned with soap and water; like, kitchen surfaces and appliances, bathroom surfaces, walls, windows, vehicles etc. The Microfiber is 1/2ooth the size of a human hair, which makes these cloths super-absorbent and able to pick and hold lots of dust, dirt and debris. I always like to remind people to flat-fold your cloth so that you have 8 separate cleaning surfaces… so you get your cleaning done faster. If you already own a collection of EnviroCloths, read this post on how to deep clean your cloths. Both the Aqua and Tangerine are a vibrant and gorgeous colours and if you are like me and like to colour coordinate your cloths according to job, you now have the opportunity to add another cloth.

AquaEnviroCloth

I’m new to the company… but cleaning my house used to be something I’d dread. My hands would always crack and bleed after a day of cleaning. No more with Norwex! ~ Rebecca Austin

I just mentioned a few of my favourites that are available to my amazing hosts this month, but I’m sure you will enjoy the variety of products offered in this reward.

The second reward is all about the Number of Buying Guests. With a minimum of 3 buying guests, you receive FREE shipping and handling; at 5 buying guest, you receive an EnviroCloth; at 8 buying guests you receive a Kitchen Cloth… and so on.  On average, in my experience, when a host invites 40 friends or family members, 8-10 will be able to attend.  I always encourage my hosts to invite EVERYONE that is on their heart so that their party is a success. Why not invite everyone? Everyone cleans their home and deserves the opportunity to do it without chemicals!

The third reward is the Host Free Dollars! It is based on a percentage of the Amount of Guest Sales and gives my hosts the opportunity to choose a product from their wish list. I love this reward, as hosts always have a product (or two) in mind.

 

The fourth reward is simple… with each new party booking, my host receives a Window Cloth.  Who doesn’t want a FREE chemical-free cloth to polish windows, mirrors and stainless steel?

 

Well there you have it for the August Host Rewards!!! I love watching how excited my hosts get when they find out how much product they receive for hosting a party at their home. I sincerely appreciate every host for opening their door and giving me the opportunity to educate them and their friends about a Norwex products and how to make their homes not only clean but clean without chemicals. Take advantage of the FREE Mop Month… it only happens once in a while.
