Leave a Comment
Assalamualaikum & Selamat membaca

Hujung minggu lalu saya berkesempatan menghadiri Anugerah Bintang Popular Shaklee atau nama sebenar 2013/2014 National Conference. Nape Ia digelar sebegitu? Sudah pastinya kerana ianya kerana ianya satu event utama yang dinanti-nantikan oleh ramai SID seluruh malaysia.

Pada tahun ini, ia lebih istimewa kerana kehadiran Pengerusi & CEO Shaklee Corporation, Mr Roger Barnett. Apa yang menarik perhatian saya adalah mengapa beliau membeli Shaklee pada tahun 2004. Keluarganya memiliki jenama & empayar perniagaan yang besar seperti  Burberry tetapi mengapa beliau memilih Shaklee? 

Nak tahu kenapa? Jom baca..

For years, the Barnett family lived like most Americans. Then, in 2004, they got an unexpected wake-up call that changed the way they clean their home and treat the environment.

Sloan and Roger say they began to notice their son Spencer's health problems when he was just 3 years old. At first, Sloan says her son coughed continuously. One day his heart was racing, so she rushed him to the emergency room.

"I don't think we knew whether we were going to lose him or not," Roger says. "They told us that he had a respiratory issue. They thought he might be developing asthma."

Sloan says she began researching chemicals that can irritate the lungs and found them in a startling location…inside her home. According to a physician, some household products—like bathroom cleaners, disinfectants, floor cleaners and oven cleaners—contain toxic chemicals that can trigger an asthma attack.

As soon as the Barnetts learned that cleaning products can be hazardous to their health, Sloan says they cleaned out their cabinets and made their home a place where everyone could breathe easier. 

After throwing out common household cleaners, Roger discovered the Shaklee Corporation, a company that had been producing natural cleaning products for 50 years.

Sloan and Roger began using these eco-friendly cleaners inside their house. "We thought they worked terrifically," Roger says. "The great news is that Spencer has never had to go back to the hospital since we switched our products and that really speaks it all for us."

The Barnetts liked the products so much, they bought the company! Now, Sloan says she tries to live in a way that's responsible to the health of her children and to the health of the planet.

Shaklee products, which include everything from dryer sheets to stain removers, are made from pure ingredients and won't leave your house smelling like a lemon tree. "Clean, real clean, doesn't have a smell," Sloan says. "Real clean is good for our children, good for our families."
