History of Aveda - Getting Creative For The Planet’s Sake

Since its inception in 1978, Aveda has been a global corporate leader in earth-friendly business practices including recycling, fair-trade agreements worldwide, and using renewable energy and organic agriculture.

April is the month the Aveda Network uses its talent to really further the brand’s earth-friendly mission. Earth Month Catwalks for Water and Trashion Shows are annual “green”-carpet events that showcase the creativity and technical skills of Aveda Artists and Aveda Institute students. The garments are created using only recyclable or repurposed materials. Newspaper skirts, bodices made of hair color tubes, and paper-plate dresses have rocked the runways in cities across the country every April for years.

The head-to-toe fashions include hair and makeup (of course!), giving stylists and students the opportunity to execute incredible avant-garde looks. The events are funded by donations from community-minded businesses and people, and funds are donated to local or global clean-water efforts.

“All of the students are really connected to a common mission of using their creativity to bring awareness to an important social cause,” says Jessica George, Director of the Jean Madeline Aveda Institute and organizer of its Trashion Show.

“They really enjoy the process of bringing their talents together as a team, not only to show off their skills but more importantly to help do something positive for others.”
