Need a Haircut? Keep Tahoe Blue Partners with Aveda!

As spring begins to reveal itself in the Reno/Tahoe area, people start to do spring cleaning and think about the earth as they spend more time outside. What if you knew that your spring haircut could help keep Tahoe blue? Aveda is an amazing environmentally responsible company that is partnering with The League to Save Lake Tahoe for the second year.

Aveda’s annual April campaign inspires beauty professionals and consumers in over 30 countries to raise millions for the protection of clean water and a healthy environment. The company also partners with nonprofits who work with locals to help preserve clean water and educate the public about local water issues. This is exactly what Keep Tahoe Blue does, so it is very encouraging for this partnership to take place.

Twenty-three Aveda salons in Northern Californa and Northern Nevada will be hosting walks, special events, and other fundraising opportunities all month long this April to benefit Earth Month, and will be raising money for Keep Tahoe Blue. Locally, there is an Aveda salon in South Lake Tahoe, Minden, Carson City, Truckee and Reno. With so many locations, there is no excuse not to check one out! 

You can visit Keep Tahoe Blue’s events page to see what salons will be hosting, and contact each salon to find out the different activities they will be doing throughout the month.

Aveda is a company that creates high performance, botanically based products for beauty professionals and consumers. They use green technology to produce their products and create new benchmarks for environmental responsibility in the beauty industry. A fun fact about the company, they are the first beauty company to manufacture with 100% wind power. Their annual Earth Month campaign has raised over $26 million dollars to support environmental projects all over the globe.

An Easy Way to Help Keep Tahoe Blue!

What is 25$ dollars to you? For some it may be a nice dinner, for others a couple albums on iTunes, or maybe groceries for a few days. What if you knew that a small sacrifice of $25 could be your way of helping to maintain the beauty of our stunning lake. For many of us it is a couple hours of work, maybe even one hour that gives you membership for a year with The League to Save Lake Tahoe, the group that distributes the classic Keep Tahoe Blue sticker.

If donating money isn’t for you, there are so many opportunities to donate your time. If Tahoe truly is something you cherish and you understand that you must pour into things in order to keep them beautiful, healthy, and successful, then it is easy to understand what needs to be done. The same way that I buy myself healthy food, stay active, exercise, and challenge my mind in order to remain healthy and proactive, I want the same for Lake Tahoe so that it can stay beautiful for generations to come.

In case you don’t know who The League is, or need an introduction into the group, you can visit my previous blog that explains who they are and what they are trying to do. This is an amazing group that never gives up on maintaining the water clarity of the lake. Today, I am going to walk you through, step by step, how to become a member of their league. It is quickeasy, and you can know that you are giving to a responsible group who is going to do the best thing possible with the donations they receive. And if you needed another reason to join, your donation is tax deductible!

The first step, is to go to www.keeptahoeblue.org. You will see a button labeled “Donate” in the upper right hand corner.

Next, you are taken to screen where you can choose the amount you woud like to donate. Fill out your billing information and hit donate at the bottom of the page, it’s THAT easy! If you don’t want to donate to a specific area, your donation will go to the area of greatest need. If you donate at least $25, you become a member of the league for a year, and join “one of many showing support for our leadership role in advocating to protect Lake Tahoe and promote conservation action to Keep Tahoe Blue now, and for generations to come.”

If you have any questions at all, you can contact the league, they are all very helpful and willing to talk to you about any aspect of their organization, Lake Tahoe, or other local things. Email: Info@keeptahoeblue.org    Phone: 530-541-5388    Fax: 530-541-5454                     

Now go out there and either donate your time or money! You don’t have to donate to Lake Tahoe if you don’t love it, but let’s all practice pouring into the things we do love. Let me know how it feels to give back to the things you love! Share what it is on here!
