Toxic World

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

In the coming months watch for Shaklee to be ramping up its marketing efforts, especially with image marketing and through social networking. Here’s an example of a great new video that is not a hard sell on Shaklee products, but a powerful message that reinforces what Shaklee is all about. An easy video to share with people.

New Get Clean Water Refillable Filters fit Brita and PUR pitchers!

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

As you are aware Shaklee has launched Get Clean Water, the most advanced pitcher water purification system available. Not only does it provide the cleanest water, Shaklee’s new product also has many advantages.

Because of the concern people have for safe, clean and good tasting water you will want to talk to everyone you know about new Get Clean Water! Be sure to point out the following features:

Better water filtration (rated to remove many more contaminants than other brands, including Brita and PUR)
Less filter waste. Get Clean Water utilizes a refillable housing unit. Only the filter needs replacing, and it lasts twice as long as other brands!
Sustainable filter design. The first solid block carbon filter for pitchers that is made with sustainable coconut.
Advanced pitcher incorporates a meter that measures how much water is filtered.

(For more information on Get Clean Water visit MyShaklee.com and listen to our recent conference calls on the topic)

But, here’s the good news: existing owners of Brita and PUR pitchers can use the new Get Clean refillable housing unit and filters! This is important because some customers have invested in their pitchers are not quite prepared to get rid of them. They don’t have to! Simply tell them that Shaklee’s new filter design should work in most Brita and PUR pitchers.  This way they can keep their current pitcher but take advantage of Get Clean Water’s better filtration and superior environmental qualities!

Of course, many will want to replace their pitchers too to take advantage of Get Clean Water’s advanced pitcher design.

(By the way, Brita and PUR filters will NOT fit in the new Get Clean Water pitcher!)

Protecting children

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

A recent article from the Pediatrics Journal reminded us that Earth Day needs to be celebrated every day.

“Despite advances in recent years and the decrease in fatal poisonings, unintentional child poisonings remain an important public health concern” said U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) investigators Robert L. Franklin and Dr. Gregory B. Rodgers.

Through improvements in product packaging has lowered the occurrence of child poisonings, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (USPC) found that in 2004, there were over 86,000 accidental poisonings of children under 5 years old.

According to a recent study in the Pediatrics Journal (Dec 2008),  55% of the involved products had “child-resistant packaging”,  most often oral medications. The most common cause of poisoning in the remaining 45% of cases involved cleaning products.

Parents and caregivers need to recognize that child-resistant does NOT mean child-proof, and that all potentially toxic products (meds, cleaning products, lighter fluid, antifreeze etc.) must be kept out of the reach of children.

This is the most important single reason for switching to Shaklee’s Get Clean products. Then you can remove toxic cleaners from your home forever! Get Clean is 100% nontoxic, they are 100% biodegradable, they work marvelously, and they will save you a ton of money in the long run, because they are so concentrated. And for a gift bonus, think of all the packaging that won’t end up in your landfill.
