2017 Charitable Initiative
Since the beginning of our Charitable Initiative in 2013, Norwex has donated over $550,000 to Consultant-nominated non-profit organisations through our worldwide giving programs. This year, we hope to create a bigger impact in our communities by donating at least $50,000 globally to organisations focused on creating brighter futures for our children.
