Earth Month with Aveda.

I love this.

As Aveda was one of the pioneers in revolutionizing the beauty industry by way of nature and natural beauty, I could not let the week end without pointing them out.

Each year during the month of April, Aveda salon and spa professionals, employees and guests work together to raise funds for grassroots organizations that protect biodiversity and address environmental issues around the world. The Earth Month campaign focuses on a specified environmental topic each year, helping to raise awareness around the issue, cultivate and educate supporters, and contribute funds to dedicated non-profit conservation organizations.

What started out as a day of awareness in 1990 has grown into a month-long international effort to involve the entire network in Earth Month activities. Salons, institutes, experience centers and offices are free to tailor their Earth Month effort according to their own strengths and creativity. Some contribute a portion of all sales that month, or work during a “Day of Beauty” when they’re not normally open and contribute all sales from that day. Others partner with local environmental groups to hold silent auctions, online auctions and fashion shows.

Each year, the proceeds benefit various environmentally-focused nonprofit groups, such as the Greenhouse Network, Clean Air-Cool Planet, Global Greengrants Fund, Chicago Wilderness, Potomac Conservancy, the Gulf Coast Restoration Network and more. Since 1999, Aveda has raised over $8 million dollars for over 70 Earth Month Partner organizations worldwide.

Eco-Friendly Everyday - Pure & Natural.

Continuing on with our celebration of Earth Day and going Green this week, it’s important to remember how using eco-friendly products protects both you and the environment- and it’s best to start with your shower and bath products! Pure & Natural is the perfect way to start.

All of the Pure & Natural products are eco-friendly, with the cleansing bar having biodegradable packaging embedded with seeds so when you plant it baby’s breath will grow. Also, the company donates a minimum of $100,000 annually to World Wildlife Fund as a commitment to protecting the future of nature.

Pure & Natural
consists of three new products including a Body Wash, a Liquid Hand Soap and Bar Soap, each reflecting a comprehensive environmentalist standpoint. All Pure & Natural products are biodegradable: the Body Wash and Liquid Hand Soap packaging are 100% recyclable, and the Bar Soap packaging, like I said, is made of 100% post consumer paper with seeds embedded inside. Love that!

These new products contain ingredients that come together to moisturize, cleanse and renew skin. Enriched with pure glycerin , all three products are hypoallergenic to leave skin feeling soft, clean and healthy.

The Pure & Natural Body Wash, Liquid Hand Soap and Bar Soap are each available in three great ingredient combinations:

  • Almond Oil & Cherry Blossom : to moisturize, nourish and soothe skin.
  • Rosemary & Mint : to cleanse, refresh and revive skin.
  • Grapefruit & Pomegranate : to gently exfoliate and renew the skin.
Pure & Natural products can be found at mass retailers nationwide.
