BEAUTY IS AS BEAUTY DOESSM
We are passionate artists—and passionate citizens. We support values that facilitate a sustainable economy and culture. And we believe in serving as agents of change—in our workplaces, with our families and friends, in our communities, and in our classrooms. The Aveda brand has always been rooted in environmental sustainability. We’re the first beauty company manufacturing with 100% certified wind power,* and our funding of new wind turbines generates enough wind energy to offset 100% of the electricity used by our primary manufacturing facility in the U.S. We use ethical ingredients, traceable from soil to bottle. Organic ingredients and practices. Plant-based alternatives to synthetic chemistry. And responsible packaging. We empower consumers by giving them choices that are organic and environmentally sound.
*Per a review of WWD Beauty Report International Top 100 Cosmetic Manufacturers’ corporate websites in April 2007. The wind energy goes into a utility grid from which we draw power.
WE’VE DRAWN A LINE IN THE SOIL.
Our commitment to the Earth runs deep. We don’t use organic ingredients just to be trendy; we led that trend ourselves. 89% of our herbal ingredients are certified organic* because it helps us ensure the integrity of the soil from which they come, and helps protect the health of those who work on it. It’s why we use the highest possible percentage of post-consumer recycled materials in our packaging, raise millions of dollars every Earth Month for causes like clean water, and pioneer programs—like Aveda Caps Recycling—that protect people, wildlife and planet. We set an example in the industry, because we believe it’s not enough for business to do well—it must also do good.
