Our Ideology At Norwex, we believe that there is a strong and direct link between our health and the health of the environment. That’s why we have made it our purpose to reduce the harmful chemicals and waste that challenge our quality of life and the future of our planet. Did You Know? • O  ver 80,000 chemicals have been created in the last 50 years, and fewer than 300 have been tested for their impact on human health. • 9  3% of people age six and older had detectable levels of BPA in their systems. • N  early 80% of all waste on our land and shorelines and in our oceans now consists of plastic debris. • I  f we don’t make a change, by 2050, we may have more plastic than fish by weight in our oceans.
