Earth Month

Earth Month is here and that means that Aveda Institute Los Angeles is buzzing with activity. Join us for one of our events listed below!

Earth Month

Aveda’s 2016 Earth Month campaign will inspire its network of beauty professionals and consumers in more than 30 countries to raise $5 million for the protection of clean water — a basic human right that nearly 900 million people worldwide fight for daily.In support of achieving this goal, the school of cosmetology and skin care, during the months of March, April and May, hopes to raise $20,000 in donations to benefit its Earth Month partner, Surfrider Foundation, through a variety of student-focused activities.


This years Earth Month partner is Heal The Bay.

Our rivers, our beaches and our ocean are incredible natural resources that serve as special spiritual sanctuaries.  But our coast provides not only intangible, emotional value, a healthy marine ecosystem also serves as a critical source of real economic wealth in southern California, from the bounty of seafood, recreation and tourism it provides.  When we protect the watersheds in which we all live, from the most inland neighborhood streets to the furthest edge of the sea, we protect our own well being.
