While Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd, at Waters + Co, we love that we celebrate all year long being an Aveda salon! Aveda was founded on caring for our planet. The company’s mission is “….to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At Aveda, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.”
Aveda accomplishes this by striving to always be on the leading edge of providing amazing products with the least impact on the environment. From manufacturing, to ingredients, transport and more, the goal is to always produce products with the least impact on our planet.
How Aveda Helps
All of Aveda’s hair care products are 90% derived from plants, and as of 2021, all of their products are now vegan. Their manufacturing facilities are 100% wind and solar-powered and they are a leader in the use of PCR – post-consumer recycled – packaging. And every order placed on aveda.com has the delivery carbon emissions offset.
Earth Month Extras
During the month of April, Aveda highlights a charity partnership. This year the company is focused on providing clean water sources to those in need across the world. Aveda has partnered with charity: water who has raised $300M for clean water initiatives, funding over 44,000 water projects, and served 10M people across 27 countries since 2006. To date, Aveda has helped to secure nearly 1,700 water sources across the globe for those facing safe water crises.
How You Can Help
Help celebrate our planet and provide clean water sources to those in need by participating in the Aveda Earth Month RunWalk to benefit chairty:water. You can also make a personal commitment to reducing the amount of water used by purchasing a Shampure Shampoo Bar to replace your regular shampoo. Most shampoos are 70-80% water! By using the bar form, you are reducing the amount of water used, as well as packaging and shipping impacts as well.
