Earth Month 2018: Aveda and Sulis
Earth Month 2018 takes place this April and Aveda and Sulis will be doing their bit to support this drive for sustainability and a healthier world
From candles that raise funds to ongoing commitments towards achieving a zero-waste world, we’re doing what we can to support this year’s month of awareness and action for our environment.
Discover more about Earth Month, what we’re doing and how you can get involved.
Earth Month 2018
IN HONOUR OF EARTH DAY, AVEDA HAS SET ASIDE A WHOLE MONTH TO LOVE, CELEBRATE AND RAISE FUNDS TO PROTECT THE EARTH AND ITS PEOPLE.
Since 1999, thanks to the passion of the Aveda network and our guests, Aveda has raised more than $56 million (US) to help support organisations that directly affect environmental change, more than $50 million (US) has supported projects that protect clean water at home and around the world since 2007.
How Aveda makes the world a better place
Aveda’s light the way candles are part of this eco-conscious company’s commitment to sustainability.
Most of the money raised has gone to clean water projects, and 2018’s fundraising effort is no different. Every light the way candle will support WaterAid Australia to deliver water-related projects. That’s 100% of the $18 each candle costs, directly donated to a charity bringing clean water to people across the country.
You can buy your light the way candles in-store at Sulis.
Beyond Earth Month, sustainability is one of Aveda’s key foundational promises. Their products are created in ways that don’t negatively impact the environment and many are water-based, meaning they are less harmful to the environment and your body than other hair and beauty products.
How Sulis helps to reduce Plastic Pollution (and more)
2018’s Earth Month theme is Plastic Pollution – an issue close the hearts of all of us at Sulis.
As part of Sulis’ commitment as a Sustainable Salon, all the plastics in our salon are recycled. They become outdoor furniture, NBN cable covers or other plastic packaging thanks to the work of recyclers such as Plastic Forests. This keeps our plastics in use and out of our oceans.
But we don’t stop our sustainability at plastic. Sulis also recycles 95% of our paper, metal, chemical and even hair while applying a sustainability mindset across a wide range of our day-to-day decision making.
