Shaklee Sponsors Arctic Explorer's Latest Expedition on Climate Change
Shaklee Corporation’s history with the National Geographic award-winning polar explorer, author and educator Will Steger spans more than 20 years. Long before global warming became a worldwide environmental concern, Steger and Shaklee have nurtured a deep respect and interest in the environment.
Over the years, Steger focused his environmental efforts on exploration, scientific research and education. He completed several record-setting expeditions across frozen tundra, measuring ice cap melt rates, tracking glacier depths and amassing vital scientific data, which he later presented at Congressional hearings on the environmental health of this remote region.
At Shaklee, our founding philosophy of Living in Harmony with Nature® has driven development of products that improve the health of people and the planet for 50 years. For his expeditions, Shaklee has provided not only nutritional expertise, but nutritional and biodegradable cleaning products. In addition, the company has provided financial contributions in support of Will Steger's efforts to inform residents south of the ice caps what’s happening on top of the world.
