Partnership with Aveda for a “Gift of Hope”

14 Oct


We are proud to announce our great partnership with AVEDA, which has resulted in the single largest Fair Trade purchase of a sustainably harvested rainforest product in Colombian history.

Our artisan partners in Colombia have handcrafted a hair band accessory using tagua nuts, that is included in every AVEDA holiday Gift Of Hope set. AVEDA’s partnership with Hope For Women allowed over 400 families to work and receive a fair wage, while also helping to sustainably utilize 400 acres of Colombian rainforest.

As a dedicated partner with AVEDA, we are equally aligned towards their commitment in helping to create a better and more independent future for communities throughout the world.  Evan Goldsmith describes the partnership, efforts and missions of both Hope For Women and Aveda.

“Consumers increasingly want to know that the products they buy are not only good for the environment, but that they are also good for the people who make them – that these people are paid a fair wage, have sustainable long term employment under good working conditions, and that their entire communities benefit. “

These AVEDA Gift of Hope sets will be available for the Holiday season within a few weeks time in over 5800 AVEDA salons across the USA, and in thousands of salons in 27 countries internationally. Once they are in store and ready for purchase, we will be posting pictures and would love your feedback when they arrive!
