EARTH MONTH 2010: WE’VE REACHED OUR GOAL!
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve raised $3.7 million, exceeding our goal of $3.5 million for global and local clean water projects this year; bringing us to a cumulative total of 18 million raised over all Aveda Earth Months so far.

ALL FOR ONE GREAT CAUSE
