Shaklee, through its philanthropic arm Shaklee Cares, has committed to expand its investment in the nutritional and environmental health for the next generation. As part of this commitment, Shaklee will partner with Vitamin Angels, a global public health nutrition organization that provides interventions for underserved children and pregnant women, to provide nutritional support for 120,000 children over the next year. To address environmental stewardship, the company has also partnered with American Forests, an organization focused on reforestation, to plant 10 million trees over the next 10 years.
“For over 25 years, Shaklee Cares has supported individuals, families, and communities,” said Roger Barnett, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Shaklee Corporation. “Our partnership with Vitamin Angels and American Forests amplifies our impact and supports our mission of working together to build healthier communities and a healthier planet.”
To date, Shaklee has provided essential nutrients to 60,000 at-risk children and has planted two million trees.
“Through its partnership with American Forests, Shaklee is supporting some of the most impactful forest restoration projects in the country,” said Austin Rempel, Senior Manager of Forest Restoration at American Forests. “In Michigan, these projects have helped to bring the Kirtland’s warbler back from the brink of extinction, and in Oregon, they’re contributing to reforestation after 2020’s record-breaking wildfire season.”
