Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care: World Environment Day

Today, people all over the world are celebrating World Environment Day. It’s an opportunity to reevaluate the impact each of us has on the environment and decide to make wiser, more conscientious choices regarding the place we all call home. This year, the theme is “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.” At Melaleuca, that theme is important to us. We work hard every day to make sure that our products and business practices are environmentally friendly. We are passionate about and committed to eco-friendly practices that contribute to sustaining Mother Nature and planet Earth:

No Harsh Chemicals
Instead of harsh chemicals like chlorine bleach, ammonia, and formaldehyde, Melaleuca EcoSense® products are powered by naturally derived ingredients including essential oils.

Concentrated Products
Melaleuca products are concentrated, which means that we use less plastic, less fuel, and less water. That leads to our using fewer resources and creating less pollution. If all the plastic that Melaleuca customers have saved since 1985 were turned into laundry baskets, there would be enough to circle the earth seven times!

Manufacturing
We use sustainably sourced and recycled materials in our, shipping materials and product packaging. We also recycle every material we can, from cardboard boxes to plastic bottles.

Energy
Our distribution facility uses skylights and energy-efficient lighting to cut back on electricity. Our Idaho Falls facilities are powered by 97% hydro and wind energy!

Shipping
We save you the cost of driving to the grocery store by shipping products directly to you. Trucks leave our distribution center packed to full capacity in order to maximize fuel use.

Packaging
Your Melaleuca orders are packed with air pillows instead of bubble wrap of Styrofoam peanuts, which create far less waste in landfills and require less fuel to ship to your door.

Distribution
Reusable plastic bins are used to move products at our plant instead of industry-standard, disposable cardboard boxes. Once the bins can no longer be used, they are recycled into fiber optic cables.

Formulation
Melaleuca EcoSense® products are formulated with natural, biodegradable ingredients that do not disrupt the ecosystem when they return to our waterways.

The products we make are processed, packaged, and delivered in conscientious ways and offer you a safe and effective alternative to store brands so you don’t have to compromise. Since 1985, Melaleuca Customers like you have helped save or avoid over:

  • 166,100,000 pounds of plastic
  • 34,800,000 gallons of gasoline
  • 37,000,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions
  • 84,082,000 pounds of algae-choking waterways

And they’ve done that just by switching to smarter, safer, cleaner products.

“Although individual decisions may seem small in the face of global threats and trends, when billions of people join forces in common purpose, we can make a tremendous difference.” –UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon

For thirty years, Melaleuca has made environmental wellness an important part of our company culture one person at a time. Make your own commitment to living sustainably.

    It is so great to know that I am also making a small difference in our environment by using consumable products that are not polluting the earth. But I am also helping in a larger way by sharing what I know to friends and family. When we all work together we can make bigger changes.
