As one of the largest purchasers of organic ingredients in the personal care industry, Aveda is eco-conscious all year round. During Earth Month, however, the company really kicks up their efforts, having raised $11 million for environmental causes since they started their Earth Month campaigns in 1999. This year, Aveda is hoping to raise a record $3 million for global and local clean water projects, through their first-ever Aveda Walk For Water. Participating Aveda salons and spas throughout the country will host walk-a-thons. To join in or donate, find your local salon or spa here.
