Aveda salons have partnered with the Gulf Restoration Network Healthy Waters and BP Drilling Campaigns to raise funds and awareness to end water pollution problems for earth month. Aveda Institute Tallahassee will be selling Aveda Earth Month Light the Way Soy Wax Candles that have organic spices from Madagascar. The purchases from these candles will help raise money for the Global Greengrants to fund hundreds of water projects. This type of organic farming will result in safe drinking water and food supply reducing water contamination.
Our institute is also selling 100% organic earth month T-shirts with artwork from kids that benefit from clean water projects in Madagascar. The students at Aveda Institute Tallahassee Florida have been hosting fund raising events to help our institutes goal to raise 4,000 dollars for the month. We are eager to help the Aveda Institutes raise money for earth month. Because our products are plant derived and natural, our goal is to help keep the earth clean from pollution and contamination.

Our masters class sold reusable water bottles to students at Aveda Institute Tallahassee for $3.00 or $4.00 if you wanted to add jewels to your bottles. When you use a reusable bottle you save money and you will not produce as much plastic waste for the environment. I loved our idea because it also goes with Earth month theme for clean water, we are so lucky to have the option to have clean water available so easily. I’m so excited to help raise money for Earth month. It’s awesome to see all the students using their water bottles at school, knowing we are all making an impact on the world by our small changes.

Aveda’s fundraisers for Earth month hits close to home for me because my family comes from Haiti. Anyone who’s been to Haiti knows, running faucet and bath water is uncommon in most of Haiti. It’s been like that even before the major earthquake disaster in 2010. Families have to collect their own clean water from wherever they can find it.
Even though Aveda’s fundraising doesn’t directly affect Haiti the concept of women walking miles away from home in similar economic distress to collect jugs of water for their families is relative. The fundraiser helps them to get water without the struggle to last them at least up to 6 months at a time. This helps prevents dehydration and starvation amongst children globally.
My class is selling reusable decorative water bottles to raise money for Aveda’s Earth month fundraising and Walk for Water. Good luck to all supporting this powerful cause.
