09 Mar Aveda Earth Month 2015Reading Time: < 1 minute
Every day, millions of women and children in developing countries walk miles to retrieve water for their families. In most cases, even after their difficult and tiring trek, the water they retrieve is undrinkable.
Not only is water extremely heavy, many times the journey can be dangerous.
Help us make clean drinking water an essential worldwide by joining the Aveda Institute Madison for our Earth Month efforts in April.
All proceeds benefitted the Alliance for the Great Lakes.
