SHAKLEE CORP. LOOKS BACK ON A 'GREEN' YEAR

 SHAKLEE CORP. LOOKS BACK ON A 'GREEN' YEAR
 SAN FRANCISCO, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Two years after the 20th


Anniversary of Earth Day launched a decade of environmental awareness, Shaklee Corp. celebrates a year's worth of accomplishments by its employees, independent distributors and customers who are helping to keep the planet healthy.
 In every state across the country this weekend, Shaklee independent distributors are participating in environmental fairs, tree plantings, stream and beach clean-ups, recycling programs and other grass roots efforts. They are part of a national corporate program called "Make Time to Make a Difference" which is collecting pledges of volunteer time for local environmental projects through the month of April.
 The company did its part by launching Basic-D, the first major brand of automatic dishwashing concentrate that is completely phosphate-free, in the fall of 1991. An environmental task force made changes in a number of products to reduce packaging waste and make recycling easier.
 Shaklee corporate sponsorships echoed this commitment to the environment. Support went to organizations including the Sierra Club, The Cousteau Society, The Arctic and Antarctic Education Fund, Trust for Public Land, The Global Cities Project, Earth Train, USA and the San Francisco Greenbelt Alliance.
 Employees at the corporate headquarters got into the green spirit through a program that recycled 2,438 tons of office paper wastes saving 41,454 trees and 926,611 gallons of oil; brown bag lunches with environmental speakers; and a corporate 2-for-1 matching gift program for any nonprofit environmental cause.
 The Shaklee Corp. is a multilevel company that manufactures and distributes nutritional supplements, personal care and household products as well as home water treatment systems. Not available in stores, Shaklee products are sold directly by a nationwide independent sales force.
