CLEAN WATER CHANGES LIVES
Local Aveda salon team undertakes fundraising for clean water in support of global $5 million goal
Snellville, GA (April, 2013) – April is Earth Month at Aveda. In 2013 the botanical beauty brand is committed to raising $5 million for clean water and Snellville’s very own Anazao Salon is stepping up to support the effort alongside thousands of other Aveda locations around the world.
Anazao Salon has set a fundraising goal of $2,325 and will host clean water fundraising events throughout April.
Aveda professionals in more than 30 countries have collectively raised more than $26 million in support of Earth Month since the campaign’s inception in 1999. Beginning in 2007, Aveda has donated Earth Month proceeds to organizations working to combat the clean water crisis – to date more than $20 million have been directed to support hundreds of clean water projects on six continents. Funds raised by Anazao Salon will benefit Chattahoochee Riverkeepers – a local charity who’s mission is to advocate and secure the protection and stewardship of the Chattahoochee River, its tributaries and watershed, in order to restore and preserve their ecological health for the people and wildlife that depend on the river system.
“We believe that good business is responsible business, “says Ginger & Brian Pendley.“ It is so gratifying to participate in a program like Aveda Earth Month that allows us to participate in a global initiative that directly benefits the community where we live and work.”
“Social responsibility has been a pillar of the Aveda ethos since the brand’s founding in 1978,” says Robert Navares – Aveda regional VP. “Aveda professionals are living proof that beauty and environment are inextricably connected – their Earth Month achievements are truly remarkable.”
