In light of the events that have unfolded in the past month, this post seems even more appropriate that it is our first one and right before Earth Month 2011. Aveda is launching a new candle in time for Earth Month and our goal is to increase awareness of the need for clean water around the world. The limited-edition soy wax candle is made with 100% certified organic ingredients and contains lavender, lavvandin and clary sages to create a beautiful aroma.
“In its 12th year, Aveda created Earth Month in April 1999 to raise awareness and funds for critically important environmental issues around the world, and has since raised more than $18 million for organizations that directly affect environmental change, and $12 million for water-related causes alone over the past four years. During the month of April, Aveda’s 2011 Earth Month campaign will connect its network of hair and skin professionals and consumers in more than 30 countries around the globe seeking to raise $4 million for awareness and protection of clean water.”
Join us this April and celebrate Earth Month by purchasing a candle for a great cause!
We will be celebrating Earth Month this year with some new events in the month of April.
Our first Edition of our Earth Month Cookbook will be available for purchase the second week of April in the salon and online. Earth Month Cookbooks will retail for $29.95 and $10 will go to our local Manhattan Sunset Zoo!! Be watching for more information!
Secondly we will be hosting a Gaia Garage Sale at Mary’s house April 16th. Our team has been cleaning out their closets, basements and kitchens to provide things to reuse, recycle and reclaim at our 1st annual Gaia Garage Sale. All proceeds of our garage sale will go to raise awareness for clean water.
Finally, we will have a bake sale towards the end of April to also raise awareness for clean water. Be looking for the date we will post it very soon.
