On May 7, I joined a group of folks from Clorox to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange to celebrate Clorox’s centennial anniversary. It was an incredible feeling to see our centennial banners wrap the façade of the stock exchange and even more incredible to “ring” the bell with hundreds of folks on the trading room floor cheering for the company. (Side note: You actually push a button, but the NYSE actually used a Chinese gong when continuous trading was first introduced around 1870.)

Clorox celebrated its centennial anniversary by ringing the bell at the NYSE.
Clorox has come a long way since 1913, when five men each invested $100 to start a company based on one product: the iconic Clorox® bleach. A century later, Clorox bleach is still used in millions of homes around the world for whitening laundry and disinfecting hard surfaces, as well as in hospitals, schools and daycare centers, where it’s important to kill germs that make people sick.
