Jen has been such an inspiration and joy to work with. She and her husband Andrew work side-by-side in her Norwex business. They live in Monroe, Wisconsin with their two adorable sons; Jayden is 3 1/2 and Bowen is 2. Andrew is a 6th grade teacher and coach during the school year. It has been fun watching him use his summer to help grow their Norwex business and making it a true “family business.”
Jen has been a hit with her customers and team since the very beginning. Her bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education and time teaching Pre-K before becoming a stay at home mom have come in handy as she educates customers and team members while making everything she touches so much fun! Jen’s success has been recognized by Norwex as she has regularly been a top recruiter and top salesperson since she started. She has developed a team of 38 amazing ladies in her short time with Norwex.
Jen is spreading Norwex through demonstrating at 10 – 12 home parties a month while also offering Norwex to those all around the United States through her fun and lively Facebook parties. The videos she has put together to educate and entertain are outstanding!
When I was younger, plastics were the new thing. In fact, until the introduction of the 2-liter container, most soda pop on a larger scale could only be found in glass bottles. Funny how far we have come from celebrating the advent of plastics to being a bit concerned. As we should be.
According the EPA, the amount of plastic entering streams and rivers has increased from one percent to twelve percent over the past almost fifty years. That is a rather staggering jump. What is the main culprit? Items from beverage bottles to cylinders of shampoo to cleaner containers. That is correct. While this blog has obviously addressed the harm that chemicals in cleaners can cause, have you ever pondered that the receptacle holding the cleaner cold be just as harmful?
The more cleaners we buy, the more containers are made. Even if you buy a refill bottle that will not help since that container is even bigger than the normal size. Perhaps you can recycle the bottle, yet would you really want the chemical residue from the cleaner being reduced into the atmosphere? Radically reducing chemicals in the home is always the goal of the Norwex products. All along this company has also radically been reducing plastics as well.
The California legislature just became the first in the country to ban single-use plastic bags at grocery stores and large pharmacies in 2015 and in convenience stores in 2016 (1). As it is with many laws, once we find this set into place in California, we can expect that other states may also consider similar action.
Norwex was one step ahead of California. Earlier this month, we announced the addition of Reusable Produce Bags to our product line. These washable mesh polyester bags are perfect to take you from the produce aisle to the refrigerator drawer. They are strong enough to carry a full load of fruits and veggies and are non-toxic, so your food stays fresh. Watch the video below to learn more:

Cabin time is so different from our day-to-day life in the suburbs. Our cute little cabin in the woods is a lot of fun, but definitely lacks the creature comforts of home. There’s no dishwasher or air conditioning, the kitchen feels like it’s practically in the living room, and we have one tiny bathroom that we share. It’s awesome though, because it’s ours, and it allows for great family bonding time. The cabin is one luxury that Norwex has allowed us to have, and I’m so thankful for it. It’s a great time for my family to get away from the rush of life and really slow down and enjoy nature and each other. It’s time when the kids forget about tv, computers and other electronics, and they play in the woods making forts and creating fun games for themselves.
As we’re doing these things, I’m constantly reminded of the changes Norwex has brought about in our lives. For example…the car we drive to get here. Before Norwex, we didn’t have a car that was really large enough to comfortably get our family and supplies to the cabin. When I promoted to the level of Vice President a few years ago, Norwex generously gave me a car allowance that provided the means for my family to be blessed with an SUV that we can travel in. Every time I drive it, I’m reminded how thankful I am for the career opportunity Norwex has blessed me with.
“Which cloth do I use for which task in the kitchen??” This seems to be one of the most frequently asked questions I get about Norwex cloths.
A few years ago, I wrote a post titled “So Many Norwex Kitchen Cloths…Which One do I use?” Most of the information is still valid, but we’ve had a few changes, so I want to give you a quick update.
My favorite of all of our kitchen products is the Kitchen Cloth and Kitchen Towel. We use them regularly in our home. The Kitchen Cloth Set that I referenced in my original post has been replaced by our new Kitchen Cloth and Towel.
One of my team members sent me this handy “Kitchen Cheat Sheet” that we re-worked a bit to add new items.
