A Million Trees, A Million Dreams.™
A Million Healthier Lives
"When we plant trees, we plant the seeds of peace and the seeds of hope. We also secure the future of our children."
– Dr. Wangari Maathai
At Shaklee, we're 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 on Earth Day 2006, encouraging the company's 750,000 Members and Ambassadors to organize tree-planting events at the grassroots level in their respective communities.
On Earth Day 2009, Dr. Maathai, Global Ambassador for the Shaklee A Million Trees, A Million Dreams™ campaign, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Shaklee Chairman and CEO Roger Barnett plant the one-millionth tree at Shaklee World Headquarters in Pleasanton, California.
"Shaklee led the way in achieving carbon neutrality in 2000 and has mobilized its networks to plant a million trees for the planet, which is not only a great achievement, but an inspiration to all of us–especially in the corporate sector."
–Dr. Wangari Maathai, 2004 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, founder of the Green Belt Movement, and Global Ambassador for the Shaklee A Million Trees, A Million Dreams™ campaign
