One Fragrant Way to Celebrate Earth Month
We love a good scent, especially one that gives back. This month, Aveda is doing just that with their Light the Way candles. We could all use a little Spring freshening and this one has added benefits. During the month of April Aveda will donate one hundred percent of the purchase price from Light the Way Candle to Global Greengrants Fund, a non-profit organization that channels high-impact grants to grassroots groups working to solve pressing environmental problems.
In case you’re curious, here are a few more deets about the candle:
The Candle: The Light the Way Candles are held in 100% reclaimed glass beverage bottles. The carton that holds the Candle is made from 70 percent PCR paperboard, with a portion made from Aveda ‘make-ready’ materials, or, sheets of scrap paperboard that would normally go into the recycling stream. This year’s Light the Way™ Candle carton is decorated with artwork made by students of the Association School in Ampasimanjeva, Madagascar, a village that has received two Global Greengrants Fund grants for water projects. The children, who previously had drunk from a dirty, crocodile-infested river, created drawings to show how their lives changed after the community built a safe community water source close to home.
The Scent: Madagascar-inspired aroma, blended with one hundred percent certified organic essential oils including vanilla, cinnamon and ylang-ylang, all sourced from Madagascar
