Access to clean water is a human right. Unfortunately, not everyone in the United States has that access. From Flint, Michigan to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to the deep waters of the Gulf, pollution & toxins threaten the health of our families, animals & environment.
Aveda sees the importance of clean water not only in the services they provide - haircuts, spa treatments, hair & makeup products - but in the communities they serve. As a result, for the past 10 years, Aveda has committed to prioritizing and funding clean water projects around the world.
GRN is proud to be an Aveda Earth Month partner by joining with salons across the Gulf (plus Arkansas, Oklahoma, & Tennessee) who raise money to support GRN's clean water work. To celebrate the beginning of April as Earth Month, we put together a video to explain why protecting our Gulf waters is important to everyone.
Special thanks to our Water Program Direct, Andrew Whitehurst, for telling his story, and Erin Wilson for illustrating Andrew's words so beautifully.
Happy Earth Month!
