As part of our Earth Month  efforts, Aveda also donates 100% of the purchase price (based on its SRP $12) of our signature limited-edition Light the Way Candles, $12 to Global Greengrants Fund, a non-profit that channels high-impact grants to grassroots groups working to solve pressing environmental problems.  The images on this year’s  Light the Way™ Candle carton were drawn by children living in the Umbari, India village who benefited from a grant supported by Aveda and Global Greengrants Fund to AWARD (Action for Women in Rural Development)  to improve the local water system. The illustrations express the joy that having easy access to clean water has brought to their lives: clean water for people, plants and animals. www.aveda.com
