Favorite Find Friday: Aveda Light The Way Candle

Written on March 22, 2013 at 9:00 am , by

April 1st marks the start of Earth month and each year when I turn the page of my calendar, it’s a subtle reminder to be a little friendlier to our planet and the world around us.  For me, there’s no easier way to do that than with a sweet-smelling candle (I’m somewhat of a hoarder!) so when I heard about the Aveda Light The Way Candle ($12, aveda.com) it was a no brainer. Not only is it made with 100% reclaimed glass but the carton (which is 70% PCR paperboard) is decorated with artwork by students of the Association School in Ampasimanjeva, Madagascar, a village that has received two Global Greengrants Fund grants for water projects. The children, who previously drank from a dirty, crocodile-infested river, created drawings to show how their lives changed after the community built a safe water source close to home. Every time I light the candle, the Madagascar-inspired blend of vanilla, cinnamon, and ylang-ylang reminds me that I (along with Aveda) am helping those little kids and their community. Aveda will donate 100% of the purchase price to the Global Greengrants Fund, a non-profit organization that channels high-impact grants to grassroots groups working to solve pressing environmental problems.  You can get yours starting March 24th or find out more information on the clean-water projects on aveda.com.
