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. This year, participating Aveda salons held 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. All funds raised from their clean-up events will be 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
  • Face down federal threats
  • Engage future generations in protecting the nature of Maine
  • Learn more about this work.

Thanks to All Who Signed Up for Our Online Action Network During Aveda Earth Month 2018.

Congratulations to Heidi E. who won two tickets for a Hardy Boat cruise of her choice this summer!
