Earth Day: 5 Aveda Products To Be More Sustainable

Young Farmer's Sustainable Christmas Message

With Earth Day being celebrated on April 22, let’s support the brands who are leading the change and consistently finding new and innovative ways to protect the environment.

What I love about Aveda is its belief in the importance of environmental sustainability when it comes to business. Just imagine if every brand took the same viewpoint.

Aveda’s focus this year is a limited edition NEW Shampoo bar, NEW sustainable scrunchie sets with Take 3 for the sea, No Wash Day products and litreship!

Skip hair wash days

Did you know you could save 45 litres of water by skipping a shampoo? Aveda’s no wash range encourage’s consumers to save water and extend good hair days four ways with the 4 no wash day products.

Purchase brands who use RECYCLED PACKAGING on their products

90% of the high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic bottles use a minimum of 80% PCR, made from milk bottles. By our calculation, it saves us over 600 tons of virgin plastic each year (HDPE, or PET).

Aveda also use PET from recycled soda and water bottles for many of our bottles and jars. Bottles with 80% or greater PCR make up nearly 90% of all retail and professional plastic bottles for Aveda. The remaining packaging is either glass, which is frequently recyclable, or plastic tubes that are not yet accepted by municipal recycling programs.
