Norwex in China

Over my past 6 years as a Norwex consultant, I’ve occasionally heard this question.  “Why does Norwex make their cloths in China?”.  Simply put, China offers the highest textile expertise in the world, which is necessary for our extremely high technology and quality of our cloths!

So what an incredible honor that In June, as one of the Senior Vice President Norwex Leaders, I was invited to personally GO to China to visit our factory!!  What a privilege, and it confirmed to me that China is the right place for these amazing cloths to be made!

As we arrived in Shang Hai, we could have easily been in any North American city… except there was both English and Chinese writing on all the signs.  The people around us were friendly, and we had a very warm welcome!  After the long flight, we were excited to be on ground, and it seemed surreal that we were half-way around the world!

Famous Street China

We enjoyed touring Shang Hai and learning more about the local culture, and we were all giddy about getting to finally visit the Norwex factory *in person*!   We could not possibly impact and bless homes all across North America (and beyond) if it were not for our incredible production team!  It was such a privilege to spend time with Norwex Global CEO, Eivind Schakt; Global Chief Sales Officer, Debbie Bolton; CEO of Norwex Canada, Judy Letain; Regional Sales Manager, Brian Dill; Chief Product Officer, David Peeters; and the factory managers and staff.  Once again, confirming that Norwex has the right people in the right positions to support incredible long-term success & growth!!  What an incredible, heart-centered, mission-driven company to be a part of!

At the factory, we were welcomed by the staff, into an air-conditioned, immaculate entrance.

Factory Tour 2015

The Norwex factory is owned and run by Norwex.  China is the textile leader of the world, which allows us to bring the highest quality cloths, with the embedded silver technology, to market.  (I still can hardly believe I have the opportunity to bring these amazing, life-changing products to market!  Blessed to have something I’m so passionate about and also the ability to earn an amazing income!!)

When they told us that we were going to ‘make a cloth’, I didn’t know quite what to expect, but it was a memory to cherish!  At the factory, we watched each and every cloth being thoroughly inspected, hand-sewn, sealed, and checked again.  The love that goes into each one made me appreciate these cloths even more!  The staff were as excited to see us, as we were them, knowing that neither of our jobs would be possible if it were not for the other.  I couldn’t believe they were going to trust us to sew on those fancy machines.  But they did!!! They gave us a sewing lesson on our practice cloth and then we got to make our “real” one!!!  It was with great pride that I sewed on that Norwex tag!

Once we had tried our hand at making a cloth, it was with even more appreciation we watched them all do it perfectly and with ease!

Sonya Delores learning from an expert    My very own framed pink Enviro cloth that *I* made! Wow!!!  My very own framed pink Enviro cloth that *I* made! Wow!!!  Thank you Norwex for giving this very special gift!!!

I have only scratched the surface on our trip, but what I can tell you is that Norwex is making a difference GLOBALLY… blessing their staff in China, our Global Headquarters, Dallas, TX, Canadian HQ in Dauphin, Manitoba, and all around the world.  Norwex is bringing thousands of jobs to North America, where consultants have the privilege to share this ‘new way to clean’!   I’m so blessed to represent this company and these products!

NEW Norwex Products are HERE!!

Check out the new Fall 2014 Products!!  These are fantastic!  Check out the new product videos and details here:  http://www.norwex.biz/pws/sonyaeckel/tabs/new-products.aspx

So here’s my top faves so far:
1) Bottle Brush with Enviro Sleeve!!!! AWESOME!!!!  It cleans dishes SO well, and you don’t have to have your hands in the dish water.  And the Enviro Sleeve is great for drying out damp glasses/ cups.  It fits right over the brush, but you won’t need to use it all the time.
2) Stainless Steel Drinking Straws with the cleaning brush!! (I’d recommend 8 per house of these with one cleaning brush!  America throws out 60 MILLION drinking straws per day (and we think that’s a pretty low estimate since McDonalds alone sells to 60 million per day!)  My boys have given these straws their hearty stamp of approval!!3) Silicone Lids!!!  These are SO AWESOME!!!  They seal beautifully, even on plastic or wooden bowls!  Keep food fresh and protected WITHOUT using Saran Wrap!  These also make great gifts!!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swxqgEj6wug&feature=youtu.be   I’d recommend a couple packages of these!
4) Reusable Produce Bags!!!  These are AWESOME!!!  I had customer commenting on mine at the grocery store yesterday, and it felt so good to not be taking more plastic bags!!  I’d recommend at least 2 packages of these (they come in a 3-pack).  You can wash your produce RIGHT IN THE BAG, let them dry and put them in the crisper.  “From grocery store to produce drawer!”
5) NEW & IMPROVED Optic Scarves!!!These now work similar to the Optic Cloth but are also safe on anti-glare!!!  New patterns and MORE effective than ever!!  Just breathe lightly on the glasses/ phone/ sunglasses/ etc…. and wipe them clean!6) Entry Mat!!  85% of contaminants are brought into the home in the first 4 steps! The Norwex Entry Mat features super-thirsty microfiber and stiff polypropylene bristles so dirt and other pollutants get trapped in the mat instead of being tracked into your home. Use the Norwex Rubber Brush to keep it looking fresh between washings. For floors, try the new Double-Sided Mop System, one mop does it all! It swivels and flips for double cleaning duty. Saves you time and storage space!

Check out the new product catalog!!!!!!!!  It will download as a PDF to your computer.
