In 2007 Aveda had the honor of becoming the first natural beauty company to be a 100% certified wind power manufacturer. Our funding of new wind energy sources generates enough wind energy to offset 100% of the electricity used by our primary manufacturing facility, distribution center and corporate headquarters in Blaine, Minnesota, USA, making Aveda the largest corporate purchaser of wind energy in Minnesota.
Also that same year Aveda raised over 2 million dollars in their efforts to be a supporter in clean water rights for earth month.
