Christmas is the season for giving, and while you’re picking out gifts for your loved ones, know that each Aveda holiday gift set purchased can make a positive impact on someone else’s life. That’s because the wrapper used to parcel up each set isn’t just paper — it’s the brand’s signature lokta bark paper.
This is handcrafted by the people of Nepal and is based on an eight-year partnership with the Himalayan Bio-Trade Limited paper-making cooperative. Over the course of this collaboration, more than 5,500 people have been hired to make more than 2 million sheets of paper. In practical terms, this means schooling for 6,100 children has been made possible, and 2,475 families can buy food, repair their homes and plan for the future.
With the recent earthquakes in Nepal, every helping hand counts. So this holiday season, do your part by donating directly to the Global Greengrants Nepal earthquake relief efforts here.
Of course, knowing that you did good will make enjoying what’s in the feel-good gift sets even more fulfilling.
Aveda Holiday 2015 gift sets are available in limited quantities from Aveda Experience Centres at Capitol Piazza, Ngee Ann City, TANGS at Tang Plaza, and Aveda Salons and Spas.
