  1. 1. JULY 2014 Kristi Hubbard Chief Executive Officer, USA I am so excited about our upcoming 20th Anniversary National Conference! We’re just two months away, and everyone at the Home Office is working to bring you the best, most powerful Conference yet. And as we prepare all the great things we have in store for you—products and programs that are sure to have a dramatic effect on your Norwex business—I can’t help but also reflect upon Norwex’s proud heritage. Although I joined the Norwex Family relatively recently, I am already extremely proud of who we are and how far we’ve come over the last 20 years in creating safer havens across the world. Seeing the great strides we’ve made globally over the last two decades just makes me that much more excited about the future! Over the next 20 years I believe we’ll open up a world of possibilities, transforming even more homes, touching more lives, and expanding into new geographical areas. What an amazing time to be a part of Norwex! I’ve often thought that one of the most comforting aspects of being a Norwex Consultant and helping others reduce chemicals in their homes is the fact that you don’t have to be an expert! You can start out by taking one small step at a time, creating Chemical-Free Zones throughout your own home. Then, as you gain confidence and learn about cleaning with just water and an Enviro Cloth, you naturally want to tell friends and family. It works in a similar way at our Home Office, too. As part of our June birthday celebrations, we’ll be encouraging local community members to turn in chemical-laden cleaning and skin care products for safe disposal. With each bottle, can or jug turned in, that’s one more home made that much safer! This month, think about all you are doing to make a small ripple of difference in your corner of the world. And be proud of your role in the very large impact that we’re all making together. I am! impressions The Norwex Mission: “Improving quality of life by radically reducing the use of chemicals in personal care and cleaning.” Debbie Bolton Chief Sales Officer, North America Hear those cheers echoing across North America? Mop Month is back by popular demand! Many of you will experience for the first time the joy of offering all your July Hosts a free Norwex Mop in this month’s Host Specials. And seasoned Norwex Consultants know that our mop is a long-time favorite of customers and Hosts as it makes cleaning a breeze. Paired with the Envirowand, even dusty ceiling fans will be sparkling in minutes. Those who have one Norwex mop frequently want a second. They make wonderful housewarming or bridal shower gifts and are perfect for the second home or even the office. Year after year, Consultants tell me how Mop Month has helped them to jump-start their summer business, which leads to Fall bookings, so I’m thrilled to bring it to you again. Don’t forget that you too can be your own Host and earn the July Host Special. Doing so provides a cost-free way for you to have a“loaner mop.”When you do, you can offer Hosts the chance to use your loaner mop prior to their party. This enables them to share with guests the many benefits of our Mop System, which not only supports your Host’s party sales, it’s yet another reason for her friends to book with you! Make the most of Mop Month right now by calling everyone and offering them your next available July party date. Mop Month is also a terrific time to join Norwex as it helps new Consultants fill their party calendars, too. Be sure to follow up with those who’ve expressed interest in joining and see if now is the right time. New Consultants can jump-start their businesses and earn a“loaner mop,”too! We know that soon many will begin budgeting for holiday spending, and when your new Consultant starts her business in the summer, she can be well on her way to a debt-free holiday season before it’s even Halloween! COSTA RICA’S Calling! See page 3 to learn how to bring a guest.

  4. 4. Message from Bjørn Dear all members of the Norwex Family, It is with great pleasure I realize that I have now been doing Norwex for 20 years! Those years have gone by so fast, and incredible things have happened. First I would like to mention Britt, the manager of Norwex Holding in Norway – she is the only one that was with me from the start – we have come a long way together, Britt! The Norwex journey was not always smooth or easy. There has been lots of worries, challenges, and in the early days there was even huge threats against us. But we have overcome all of that, and during the last 10 years or so we have seen incredible, unbelievable growth. I am proud to say that we now have more than 50,000 active Consultants worldwide, and this year again we are seeing unfathomable growth. This is all due to you out there in the field – you are the ones creating Norwex, making the Norwex Family what it has become. So I want to humbly thank you for all you are doing to spread the word of improving quality of life by reducing chemicals in our homes. And I am extremely proud of what you are doing as well – you all know you are not only building businesses, but more importantly, you are contributing to make the world a better place to be, both for the present and for future generations. This is why Norwex is so unique – this is what makes the Norwex Family so special. Having seen what has happened during all these years, I can safely say that for all of you out there the sky is not the limit. I know that if you are brave enough to believe in yourself, your achievements would be practically unlimited. So whoever you are and wherever you are, please dare to dream, dare to live your life the way you want it to be. If you do that, the next 20 years will be even more incredible!!! Best Regards It All Started with a Little Red Cloth ... It all began 20 years ago this month with a little red cloth. On June 28, Norwex celebrates its official 20th global Anniversary! To commemorate the event, our famous Red Enviro Cloth will feature a special 20th Anniversary white label in honor of two decades of creating Chemical- Free Zones around the world. This special-edition Red Enviro Cloth will be substituted in all orders, incentives, collections and specials through the end of the year, or while supplies last. Turning Homes into Chemical-Free
  5. 5. Encourage June customers to begin eliminating chemicals from their homes, creating Chemical-Free Zones. Download this Chemical Free-Zone Checklist and share it with your customers to show where chemicals often lurk in the home—usually unbeknownst to the people who live there! Then share these Chemical Free-ZoneTags so they can proudly indicate areas of their homes where they’ve removed chemical- laden products. Make sure your customers have your contact information; then ask them to send you their best photo of what they eliminated from their homes, along with a sentence describing how it made them feel. (Example: “What a powerful feeling knowing I am eliminating chemicals and making a positive difference for my family!”) Post your favorite photos (including your own) on www.NorwexRace.com. Each day during the week of June 23 – 27, we’ll draw four lucky winners of a Let’s Do Laundry Pack! See the rules for all the details! • 20 lucky Hosts will receive calls from the Home Office letting them know they’ve won a Household Package Plus* A milestone anniversary deserves to be celebrated! And you’ll especially want to have parties on your calendar Saturday, June 28! • Two Consultants who hold parties June 28 will each receive a Safe Haven Package! $59.99 VALUED AT $72.99 VALUED AT $146.99 VALUED AT Plan to Party June 28!

Zones for 20 Years! How Safe Is Your Haven? CHEMICAL-FREE ZONE CHECKLIST Use this checklist to help rid your home of common toxic chemicals and learn about safer alternatives. KITCHEN o Do you use plastic food containers? Glass is best for storing foods and beverages, especially for baby. Another alternative is BPA-free plastic. Never use plastic in the microwave; always use glass or ceramic to reheat. o Do you filter your tap water? Check your local municipality’s water quality report and consider using a filter for your water. Options range from simple and inexpensive carafe filters to under-the-counter units to provide purified water from the tap. o Do you drink bottled water? Approximately 1,500 bottles end up in landfills and the ocean—every second. Reducing your use of plastic bottles can help! Use an aluminum bottle or glass. Add fresh fruit or mint for a refreshing drink, without a plastic taste. o What’s under your kitchen sink? Typical household cleaning products (all-purpose cleaner, window cleaner, dishwasher detergent, dish- washing liquid, scouring paste) may contain toxic and harmful chemicals. Ditch them and replace with water, a Norwex Enviro Cloth and a Norwex Window Cloth for all your chemical-free cleaning needs! o Do you cook with nonstick cookware? Nonstick cookware may contain chemicals such as PFOAs and PTFEs. Both of these kinds of chemicals are used for stick and stain resistance, but they come at a price to your health. Choose cast-iron, stainless steel or glass/ceramic pans. o Got cans in your pantry? Most canned foods (including liquid baby formula) use a liner that contains BPA, a toxic chemical that can leach into the food. Use fresh or frozen whenever possible—no BPA, plus more nutrients! BATHROOM CH EMICAL FREE ZON E o Do you use air fresheners? Don’t. They may contain toxic chemicals like phthalates at very high levels. Use plants to filter your air, ventilate by opening a window, or use essential oils for natural fragrance. Enzyme-based Norwex Odour Eliminator is also a great way to freshen the air, naturally. o Do you use liquid hand soap? Check for ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, and triclosan, which the AMA recommends not using. There are far less-toxic alternatives, including Norwex Peppermint Foaming Hand Wash. o Do you have a shower curtain? Chances are very good that it contains PVC, a chemical used to make plastic more flexible. This chemical has been linked to a host of health problems, including respiratory irritation, nausea and central nervous system damage. Use a greener alternative, like ethylene vinyl acetate, which can be found online. o What’s in your personal care products? Check the ingredient listings for these big no-nos: parabens, phthalates, sulfates, triclosan, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes. Babies and children are especially sensitive to these ingredients. Switch to greener formulas, especially for those products you use every day, like shower gel, body lotion, hand cream, etc. Norwex has a full line of safe, effective, moisturizing skin care products to help you transition away from chemicals. o What’s under your bathroom sink? If you have a toilet bowl cleaner, descaling product or all-purpose cleaner, chances are good they contain toxic chemicals. Norwex offers products with ingredients that work and won’t harm you or the environment, including Blue Diamond All-in-One Bathroom Cleaner, Descaler, Bathroom Scrub Mitt, Ergonomic Toilet Brush and Holder, as well as our Enviro Cloths to make cleaning easier, faster and healthier. 10848 - 0514

It’s a fun way to connect with other Consultants in your country and share business-building tips and success stories! To join, simply send a request to ConsultantConnection@Norwex.com. New to Norwex? “EverythingYou Want,You Can Achieve” We might be tempted to think that not speaking someone else’s language could be a barrier, and prevent us from sharing the Gift of Norwex. However, as the experiences of Spanish-speaking Consultant Lucila Hubbard clearly show, success is really a matter of mindset. Lucila joined Norwex in February after attending a party at her sister’s house. As mom to a special-needs child, she immediately understood that Norwex could be a great opportunity to help protect her son’s health, as well as the whole family’s, by reducing the use of chemicals in her home. But even though Lucila studies English, she didn’t feel comfortable doing parties in English. At the urging of her Upline, however, she booked a party with her neighbor (an English-speaker) and soon had eight guests confirmed. Despite “extreme nervousness,”Lucila made up her mind to have a successful party. Lucila’s first party was a success by all accounts. Her orders totaled more than $800, and she even booked a party. The Host was so impressed with Lucila’s presentation that she wrote a congratulations letter. “Hi Alisa: I just wanted to let you know what an incredible job Lucila did last night!! WOW!!! I was very impressed. My friends loved her! I could not believe how good her English was, and her product demonstrations and her real-life examples of using the product were so convincing and so sincere. I think Lucila can do really well with this. It’s just a matter of finding people to put her in front of!” Lucila now feels more confident and is motivated to hold more parties, regardless of any language“barriers.” Here’s what else she learned: • Objections are a mindset • Focus on the products • The key is the party • Demonstrations are easy and fun • Language is not a barrier No matter what language is spoken, everyone wants the healthiest home possible for their families. Equipped with a“Can do”mindset and Norwex marketing tools, you can break through any“language barrier”and experience success too great for words! Monica Hysong Regional Sales Manager, USA Featured Products for July The featured products for the July Ripple Effect will be the Norwex Floor Systems.

  10. 10. Magnificent Mop Month! Throughout July, your Hosts can earn a Norwex Mop based on sales and bookings at their parties. What a great time to let Customers know about all the ways our Norwex Floor Systems and products help them create Chemical-Free Zones! Norwex Floor Systems—One for Every Size and Space Each of our four Norwex Floor Systems comes with the Telescopic Mop Handle and either Small or Large Mop Base, Small or Large Wet Mop Pad, and Small or Large Dry Mop Pad or Superior Dry Mop Pad. Use a Norwex Floor System at your parties to teach customers how to rid their homes of harmful chemicals in products like floor and window cleaners. The Norwex Floor Systems pick up everything using only water! Mini Mop System—Item #: 1212, $81.99; Mop Starter System— Item #: 1211, $92.99; Superior Mini Mop System—Item #: 1210, $94.99; Superior Mop Starter System—Item #: 1209, $112.99 Add the Norwex Tile Mop Pad for extra cleaning power on hard surfaces! Small—Item #: 350105, $24.99; Large— Item #: 350106, $32.99 Mop Conversion Kit—Great for Cleaning Windows These handy brackets convert either the Small or Large Mop Base into the perfect window-cleaning machine. Just snap them on; attach a Window Cloth, Envirotowel or Car Cloth; grab your Spray Bottle (filled with water of course!) and you’re ready to clean even the highest windows completely chemical-free. Item #: 356400, $11.99 Rubber Brush—Give Dirt the Brush Off! Quickly brush debris from Dry Mop Pads into the trash after use. The Rubber Brush also removes hair, lint, crumbs and dust from textiles, pets, car seats, furniture and carpeted stairs. Item #: 357010, $14.99
  11. 11. Sue Thomson, Senior Executive Sales Leader – Colorado Just AddWater! Make Every Party Successful with the Norwex Mop! “One of my top Norwex favorites is the mop, as it has literally changed my life. When I first started selling Norwex, I had a dog that shed clumps year round. I went from vacuuming multiple times a week to using my Norwex Mop to remove the hair from my house!” Personal stories like this catch your guests’interest and give them a concrete idea of how the product can help them. Once all the guests have gathered in the kitchen, I open with,“Does anyone suffer from animal hair?”It usually gets a little chuckle of understanding. I begin the demo by doing figure eights with the Dry Superior Mop Pad and showing guests how it grabs the dog hair, dust and crumbs. I also discuss the uniqueness of the angled edges and how it gets into the corners. With the Host’s permission, I like to be adventurous and swipe under the refrigerator. I say things like,“Should we go under the fridge? Oh, this gets me so excited!”I then proceed to the trash can and demo how to use the Rubber Brush to release the dirt from the bottom of the pad. It’s important to me that my customers understand they can clean their floors with just water and our mop by using the Antibac pad.“Remember, blue for wet!”I tell them to get it wet and wring it out, and remind them that this fiber is just like the fiber in my Enviro Cloth. It’s going to do the same thing to our floors—pick everything up from the surface and hold it in the pad. If customers have a larger area to clean, they’ll need to rinse the pad a couple of times. If they have stickies on the floor from little ones, I show them how to step on the base and rub a bit harder to release it. The mop is then passed around for others to try. In conclusion, I share one last benefit—that it can wash windows! I suggest they use the blue pad to wash the window, and then use the Mop Conversion Kit along with the Window Cloth to polish up the glass. Don’t forget to share Booking and Recruiting Seeds! Here are two that I like to use: “Many women choose to host a party so they can get the mop for free.” “If you’re in love with Norwex and can see yourself doing what I’m doing, the mop is in the Starter Kit!”
  12. 12. Creating Safer Havens—Tips for Avoiding Flame Retardants Problem: Flame retardants (aka polybrominated diphenyl ethers, or“PBDEs”) are among the most common and pervasive chemicals in our homes. They can be found in carpeting, mattresses, children’s pajamas, computer casings and televisions. As they leach out of these items into the air, they attach to dust particles floating in our homes. Unfortunately, they’re at the root of many health concerns, including thyroid issues, cancer and reproductive issues. Solution: It can be hard to completely avoid flame retardants. But you can minimize your family’s exposure by dusting and mopping thoroughly and regularly. Norwex Mops and the Dusting Mitt are perfect solutions! Also, frequent hand-washing throughout the day helps to remove the dust particles—this is especially important for toddlers and children who are usually closer to the floor, where dust settles. Inspect any furniture that contains foam, like sofas, children’s car seats, changing pads, nursing pillows and mattresses. If foam is exposed, replace it. When replacing carpet in your home, be careful with the foam pad underneath; it may contain flame retardants. Consider closing off the area while the carpet is being removed. Exciting news! Soon, you will begin to notice our new BacLock logo in place of“Antibac”on many Norwex Microfiber product labels. As you are probably aware, many of our Norwex Microfiber products are described as“Antibac,” indicating that the cloth contains an antibacterial agent for self-cleansing purposes. The antibacterial agent is designed to inhibit bacterial odor, mold and/or mildew growth within the product. Please note that the cloths themselves are not changing in any way, nor is the antibacterial agent within them changing in any way. However, the logo and the word“BacLock”will now appear in place of“Antibac”on these products’labels, as well as marketing materials describing them. Why the change? Quite simply, Norwex was able to trademark the name“BacLock.” We own the name and it is exclusive to Norwex, which is good news for us all! Is the New Antibac! Envirotowel Modification Notice The Envirotowel (Item #: 306001) was recently modified as follows: • The color is now a slightly darker shade of green. • The label now includes the word“polish”to better describe how the product should be used. Please note, these updates do not affect the product’s usage in any way.
