'Tis the Season


When the dry winter air and sunless days leave your skin looking like Yoda's, turn to Aveda, the maker of those beauty products your Cindy Lou Who-complexioned co-worker swears by. In addition to revitalizing minds and bodies, Aveda's holiday collection for men, women, and home is environmentally friendly. The company offsets 100% of the energy its Minnesota manufacturing plant generates by financing wind turbines; pioneered and actively pursues the use of certified organic ingredients; and promotes and supports sustainability initiatives across the world. Additionally, Aveda has partnered with artisans in Nepal to make the paper in its gift sets out of Lokta, a shrub in the Himalayas that regenerates quickly, offering an attractive alternative to trees. Dreaming of a green Christmas yet?
