STAND UP FOR CLEAN WATER
March 22 was World Water Day. Coming up in April, we will begin celebrating Earth Month.
Over the next several days we will be focusing a lot more on H20 molecules… the chemical make-up of the substance we depend on. All of life depends on 1 hydrogen and 2 oxygen atoms joining together.
Water is in everything! Water is used in almost all your products at home. It is necessary for sanitation. We need it to take a shower. Water is used to power wash your driveway. Water keeps the Earth healthy. Water helps regulate the Earth’s temperature. Water is everything!
Yet, it is so easy to take this for granted because of our accessibility to water. As Americans, we can forget how dependent we are on water and how precious it is for all of life. From Africa, Asia, and Latin America, there are millions of people who do not have safe accessible drinking water. The issue is not just foreign. America must pay attention to the way we use water…
What can we do.
Lavish does not have all the answers like the professionals in that video. But we do have the heart and the ability to do something. As partners with Aveda, every year we sell the Earth Month candles. 100% of the purchase goes to support Global Greengrants Fund water-projects. The Earth Month candles are made of soy wax with Aveda's own pure-fume™ aroma certified organic vetiver to create a sanctuary at home.
We are encouraging you to think about water and how much you are using. Then consider what you can do to further the cause for all of Earth’s inhabitants access to water.
