At Aveda the month of April is designated as Earth Month, and since starting this even in 1999, with the help of guests and their network of salons, Aveda has raised more than $14 million for grassroots organizations that protect biodiversity and address environmental issues around the world. For the past three years they have concentrated on the issue of water – raising funds and awareness for equal rights and access.
Did you know that 1 in 7 people globally (that’s nearly 1 billion people) do not have access to clean water on a daily basis?
To help us learn of their impact on global/local water issues, they have created this water foot print calculator. Check it out here . The calculator provides great tips on conserving water and is quite an eye-opener for us ! Not to mention that for every completed calculator, Aveda will donate $1 (up to $500k) to their global partner, Global Greengrants Fund, to help fund clean water projects.
