When Is Earth Day

by AntiAgingByDesign

If you are asking when is Earth Day in 2018, It’s Sunday, April 22nd. 

But the real answer for when is Earth Day should be EVERY DAY!

Earth Day is the day we celebrate the planet, and every day is when we should be taking care of the planet – and that includes our own personal environment.

Scroll down for an awesome way to celebrate Earth Day this year:  a chemical-free home cleaning starter kit that also makes a  GREAT GIFT!


Earth Day 2018




We are living in a day and age where nature, and living in harmony with nature, is getting more important to more people.

And we continue to learn more about toxins and chemicals and the way they can hurt all of us, as well as our planet. We need to learn more about chemical-free, natural products and how they can help us take care of ourselves, our families, and our earth at the same time.

Are you tired of being around chemicals? Are they making you sick? Impacting your health in any way? Check out our page on TOXINS for more about how chemicals are affecting our health.

While you can’t control all of the chemicals you are exposed to in the outdoor environment or indoor areas other than your home, one of the most important things you can do is to get rid of the chemicals in your home.

Study after study are confirming that chemicals in cleaning products have such a negative effect on your health. Doctors and scientists are tracking all allergies and in many other elements of health


We chose the Shaklee brand back in 1982 — 36 years ago — and one of the first products we used was the green, non-toxic, chemical-free, all-purpose cleaner:  Basic H.

Basic H was one of the very first official Earth Day products back in 1970, and it is an unbelievable, fantastic cleaning product. It actually gets under the dirt, and you just wipe it away.

Shaklee Basic H

(Basic H2 can be purchased separately from the Get Clean Starter Kit.)


One Family at a Time Can Make a Difference

Basic H2 helps you reduce the chemical load in the products you use because it can do a lot of different cleaning jobs in your home, replacing many different chemical-filled cleaning products. And it saves you money because Basic H2 is so economically efficient that it can save families several thousand dollars using it as a window cleaner, or several hundred dollars using it as a multi-purpose cleaner.

One Small Action Can and Does Make a Difference

Basic H2 can help our planet in multiple ways because Shaklee pioneered the idea of super concentration. You mix super concentrated Basic H2 with your own water to make a powerful cleaning solution, and at the same time 1) save hundreds or even thousands of bottles from ending up in landfills, and 2) help keep more chemicals from polluting the air.

Safe Healthy Home


I love how I can make an impact on the environment by helping people get healthier at the same time, both my own family and others who I work with who like the holistic idea of wellness.

Spring has sprung and many of us are planning our Spring cleaning schedule.

You can purchase a 16 ounce bottle of Basic H2, along with a 3 pack of spray bottles with directions for mixing right on the bottles, and it will last you a long, long time since it is super concentrated.

Through the years since Basic H was introduced and updated to Basic H2, more products have been added to the Shaklee brand of all-natural cleaning products.


The better option is the Get Clean Starter Kit that helps you clean your entire house and get rid of the most chemicals in your home!
