Dr. Wangari Maatthai

I was saddened this morning to hear of the passing of Dr. Wangari Maathai.

She was a Nobel Peace Prize winner and the Global Ambassador for Shaklee’s A Million Trees. A Million Dreams. Campaign.

Shaklee began a tree-planting campaign across the United States and Canada on Earth Day 2006. Earth Day 2009, Dr. Wangari Maathai, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and CEO Roger Barnett plant the 1 millionth tree at the Shaklee World Headquarters in Pleasanton, California.

"Shaklee led the way in achieving carbon neutrality in 2000 and has mobilized its networks to plant a million trees for the planet, which is not only a great achievement, but an inspiration to all of us—especially in the corporate sector"

– Dr. Wangari Maathai

Take a few moments to watch this inspiring video of Dr. Wangari Maathai’s involvement with Shaklee!

In honor of Dr. Wangari Maathai
