Get Involved

Through the power of our salons, spas, stores, institutes, guests, and supporters like you, Aveda Earth Month strives to help those in need of clean water, decent toilets and basic hygiene. Aveda Canada participates annually as part of a global initiative with other Aveda Networks worldwide to raise money and awareness of water related issues.

We often take clean, drinkable water for granted. The reality is that 844 million people do not have access to clean water, 2.3 billion people do not have access to a clean bathroom, and 800 children die every day from diarrhea caused by dirty water and poor toilets

Aveda Earth Month is dedicated to ending the world water crisis. In partnership with WaterAid, we believe this goal is achievable. 

Stand Up for Clean Water

Collega + Aveda Canada has committed to something truly amazing.

From April 2016 to March 2019, we're going to achieve 100% water access in two of Madagascar’s poorest municipalities – Belavabary and Sabotsy Anjiro, together the size of Calgary. This means that every school, every health clinic, every village – everyone, everywhere – will have access to clean, safe drinking water.

Just imagine, we're going to make history for 20,000 children, women and men who will gain access to this precious resource, many for the first time in their lives. No more illness and death because of dirty water, no more hours wasted carrying water from distant sources – just better, brighter futures because of you.

Madagascar's water crisis

11.7 M people in Madagascar don't have access to clean water.


88% of people in Madagascar don't have access to decent toilets.


4,000 kids under five die each year from lack of clean water and decent toilets.


12 years of Aveda impact

Water, decent toilets and basic hygiene for everyone, everywhere by 2030. This will become a reality. At WaterAid we’re determined to make it happen, and we are thrilled that AVEDA is determined too.

We want to reach every community, every family, every single person with clean water to drink and somewhere safe to go to the toilet. We have the passion, expertise, experience and technology to reach a day where everyone, everywhere has access to clean water.

AVEDA has raised more than $4.5 million to help reach over 180,000 people with “taps and toilets”, and their engagement activities across the country have helped to keep this vital issue at the forefront of people’s minds.

On behalf of WaterAid Canada’s staff, Board, volunteers and community partners, congratulations to each and every AVEDA Earth Month participant for your hard work and dedication to this important cause! Your support of WaterAid’s vision of clean water, sanitation and hygiene for everyone, everywhere by 2030, is helping change the world. WaterAid is incredibly appreciative of AVEDA’s long-standing commitment to improving the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.
