A lot of brands are involved in charity and offer a part of their revenues to good causes, either the whole year through or with special projects on special moments. Aveda has chosen Earth Month to be their special time of the year to raise big bucks for charity. This year again you can purchase a limited edition candle for €15.00/$12.00, of which 100% of the purchase price goes to charity. Yep, not a percentage or a fixed number - but really every penny you've spent on it! This Light The Way Candle is packaged in a recycled glass jar and a recycled carton box and has a spicy aroma of certified organic vanilla & cinnamon, grown in Madagascar. I am a big fan of these types of scents - anyone who loves those warm Autumnal candles will be smitten with this one too. The candle isn't very big, but should last you about 27 hours of burning time.
In Belgium specifically Aveda Benelux is working together with Justdiggit, an organisation that is devoted to the battle against climate change and aims to prevent and reverse the disruption of the natural balance resulting in water scarcity, hunger and natural disasters. The company digs ditches in dry areas, allowing collected rainwater to penetrate the soil again. This results in the surrounding areas becoming greener again & the area restoring itself.

If you need a gift this month for someone who's into candles.. Don't hesitate and go find your nearest Aveda salon. With the whole retail price going to charity, it's a double gift your giving.
