IT’ S TI M E FO R A Change More than 20 years ago, Norwex Founder Bjørn Nicolaisen discovered a better way to clean, with fewer chemicals and less waste using a microfiber cloth. It was a small change, but now millions of people just like you have cleaner, healthier homes. Did you know? • More than 85,000 chemicals have been created in the last 50 years. • Only a small percentage have ever been tested to determine their impact on human health.* • About 300 million tons of plastic is produced globally each year; less than 10% is recycled.** Harmful chemicals in household cleaning products affect our health and damage our environment. We are just like you—we want to do better, be better and create Safe Havens for our families. And we are doing just that, one healthier home at a time. Improving quality of life by radically reducing chemicals in our homes. *“Think Those Chemicals Have Been Tested?” New York Times, April 13, 2013: https://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/14/sunday-review/think- those-chemicals-have-been-tested.html **Plastic Oceans Foundation: https://plasticoceans.org/the-facts/ 3
