Have you noticed what the new media buzz word is? Some recent ones for food have been "Low Fat!", "No Sugar Added!", "High in Omega 3!" Of course the low fat stuff was loaded with sugar and the sugar free stuff is loaded with fat or horrible artificial sweeteners. The latest buzz word which I predict we will be seeing EVERYWHERE is.......... NATURAL! 

I have seen it in 2 ads today. One for a cleaner that starts with a V. I looked on their website but could not find what the "natural" ingredients are. Just because something is natural does not mean it is not harmful to us or the environment. I am grateful to my Norwex Enviro Cloth so I can clean 99% of the time with just water! No money spent on cleaners. Nothing going down the drain or being left behind as a residue and no garbage created from the packaging. Not to mention the environmental impact from manufacturing and shipping the product to stores. I LOVE NORWEX! 

The 2nd time today that I saw the word NATURAL used was in a pasta (starts with an O) commercial. At the end of the commercial they said, "Now made with natural ingredients." !!!!! What was it made of before? LOL What does it say about food (or what we call food) that natural is now an exception (that's why it's a buzz word) rather than a rule? Food for thought! LOL

About Norwex The Company

Norwex started in Norway as Eidsvoll Milijoprodukter in 1994.  Debbie Bolton and Gerd Doroshuk brought it to Canada (Manitoba) in 1999 at which time it was named NORWEX which stands for NORWegian EXperience!  
"The goal has always been to produce a more environmentally friendly and efficient cleaning product (microfiber)  requiring ONLY WATER."
The Norwex mission is to improve quality of life by radically reducing the use of chemicals in personal care and cleaning.

Norwex's core values are integrity (honesty/morality), trust and respect.  These values match my own.  My research and personal experience with the company and it's products have proven to me that the company has integrity and I trust and respect them.  It is also VERY important to me that:
  • Norwex does not sell products that are tested on animals.
  • All of their products are produced in as environmentally friendly manner as possible.  
  • Anything purchased from a third world country is fair trade. 
"At Norwex we say, we are not building a business but we are building a legacy.  Together we are trying to build something that is going to grow beyond us.  It will go on for many many generations.  We want to leave this planet in better shape than we came into it."
Debbie Bolton, Norwex North America CEO
