Hope for the Holidays
Every Aveda gift set brings joy, light and hope this holiday to mothers, daughters, families and wildlife in Nepal. In the spring of 2015, massive earthquakes devastated Nepal as millions lost their homes and livelihoods. This also happens to be the source of Aveda’s *lokta bark paper for its holiday gift sets, and has been for over nine years. Aveda immediately took action back in the spring and donated much of its Earth Month proceeds to help support the disaster-relief efforts. Today, those efforts are still taking place which is why this partnership is even more important to us this holiday season.
*The paper-making cooperative in Nepal was created by the Himalayan Bio-Trade (HBTL).
We’re bringing hope to the mothers who are able to continue paper making, allowing them to rebuild their homes and keep their children in school.
We’re bringing hope to daughters who can remain in school and continue to have bright futures.
We’re bringing hope to families who rely solely on income from paper-making.
We’re bringing hope to wildlife because our purchase of the Certified Wildlife Friendly, and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper helps protect more than 40,000 acres of forest habitat in Nepal.
Each holiday gift set is wrapped in the lokta bark paper and ensures the 4,900 full and part-time paper makers can continue their work and support their livelihoods. The protected forest habitat provides a home to the Red Panda and endangered Snow Leopard. Aveda is the first company to wrap gifts in paper with both certifications.
Aveda is also introducing an exclusive holiday aroma called Candrima, a blend of ginger and ginger-lily. Cadrima means “moonlight” in Sanskrit and is inspired by the white blossom of the ginger lily. The aroma is available in our holiday candle as well as the limited-edition gift set, “A Gift of Pure Comfort” which includes the Candrima Body Lotion, Creme Cleansing Oil and travel size Hand Relief. It’s also available this year in the Hand Relief Trio gift set, “A Gift of Renewal for Your Journey.” The set features three travel size Hand Relief lotions in Candrima, Shampure and original formula.
Over the course of our partnership with HBTL, more than 5,500 people have been hired to make more than 2,000,000 sheets of paper, allowing 6,100 children to attend school, and 2,475 families to thrive.
