Celebrate Aveda Earth Month

Support Our Work Protecting Maine’s Clean, Beautiful Waters

Throughout April — Earth Month — Aveda salons in Maine promote NRCM's work protecting Maine's lakes, rivers, streams, and coastal waters. In past years, participating Aveda salons have hosted clean-ups of local riverfronts, beaches, parks, and other public areas to raise awareness and funds in support of NRCM's work for clean water. They have also held raffles, done "round up for charity" events, hosted cut-a-thons, and more. All funds raised from clean-up events were donated to NRCM in support of our work for clean water.

Here are some of the ways that your support is helping to protect Maine's clean waters:

  • Safeguard drinking water
  • Protect against mining pollution
  • Expand Maine’s "Bottle Bill"
  • Protect from pesticides
  • Engage future generations in protecting the nature of Maine
  • Learn more about this work.
