2017 Charitable Initiative
Since the beginning of our Charitable Initiative in 2013, Norwex has donated over $550,000 to Consultant-nominated nonprofit organizations through our worldwide giving programs. This year, we hope to create a bigger impact in our communities by donating at least $50,000 to organizations focused on creating brighter futures for our children.
Create a Safe Haven for your children while helping us reach our goal, with your purchase of a Kids EnviroCloth!

“Shiloh Field, at 14.5 acres, is the largest community garden in the USA... The quality of crop that Shiloh Field produces and donates is pure, homegrown, healthful organic food free from chemicals and fresh from the garden... Over 14 local charities, food banks, and non-profits receive crop donations from Shiloh Field. Amazing!”

“KidKnits was founded by a nine-year-old knitter, Ellie Zika... I am awestruck by the great work that the organization does... Through the fair trade import of handspun yarn from women living and working in poverty in developing countries, KidKnits offers a simple craft kit for a student that is integrated with a comprehensive service learning."

“Seeing [a friend] give her hostess specials to Mt. Hope inspired me… Mt. Hope is a non-profit, faith-based program that assists women and their children who are committed to achieving self-sufficiency... Why shouldn’t they live in a safe haven?”
