Earth Day

It’s Earth Day and Avon is doing it’s part to help the planet.  Together we can save the earth.  Here is the mission statement:  Avon Hello Green Tomorrow is mobilizing a global environmental movement to nurture nature and help end deforestation. 

The following information has been taken straight from the website: www.hellogreentomorrow.

Avon is committed to helping end deforestation – a global crisis that endangers the wellbeing of the planet and the survival of all living creatures. The company is applying its resources to empower a global environmental movement, using its unique ability to educate, engage, and mobilize people worldwide to do good and give back in this important cause.

And while the global mobilization rolls on, behind the scenes, Avon is focused on environmental stewardship throughout the business enterprise. We know that working together, we can help plant a future.

Hello Green Tomorrow Global Mobilization and Fundraising

In 2010, the inaugural Hello Green Tomorrow program raised more than $2 million for the Atlantic Rainforest in South America. This year, Avon Hello Green Tomorrow is mobilizing and fundraising in more than 50 countries across six continents to help save two of the most critically endangered ecosystems on earth: the Atlantic Rainforest, once again, as well as the endangered forests of Borneo and Sumatra in Indonesia.

A collection of unique fundraising products has been created by Avon worldwide, with all proceeds donated to the Hello Green Tomorrow Fund.

Avon is also using its unique woman-to-woman network of 6.5 million Sales Representatives to help drive “green” education and behavior change, focused on the “Five R’s”:
reduce, reuse, recycle, rethink and replant.

One of the products that Avon has developed is this reusable water bottle.  Made with 100% recyclable aluminum with a BPA-free interior coating, screw top lid.   It’s durable, leak free and holds 34 fl. oz. 

When you purchase this water bottle, 100% of net profits will be donated to Avon’s Hello Green Tomorrow Fund to plant trees in the critically endangered forests of South America and Indonesia.

These vital tropical forests serve as the “lungs of the earth” and clean pollutants from our air. Restoring these forests will help bring a healthier tomorrow for generations to come.

With your help, the Hello Green Tomorrow Fund has already planted 2 million trees and restored 5,000 acres, but there is much more to do. Together we can say hello to a greener tomorrow.
