It is our favorite time of the year at Parlor, and we don’t just mean Spring time!
You may recall that Earth Day is celebrated at the end of April, but for us at Parlor, we have a salon tradition of making the WHOLE MONTH of April a dedication to Mother Earth, and all we can do to help her! This includes our annual beach clean up, happening for 2015 on Monday, May 4th in Nyack , NY , as well as spending the month raising funds for various environmental causes.
he recipient of our fundraising efforts in 2015 is none other than Clean Ocean Action, a non profit organization based out of Highlands, NJ, and neighbor to the beautiful beaches at Sandy Hook , NJ . C.O.A.’s mission is to improve the quality of marine waters surrounding the New York and New Jersey coasts through research, public education and citizen action! They have had great success in their efforts, having helped to close EIGHT ocean dump sites through federal legislation that now prohibits these practices!
There are several different ways you, our dear clients, can contribute to this fantastic cause:
Make a donation of $12 or more to the cause and receive an Aveda “Light the Way” soy candle as a thank you from Parlor, FREE!
Every Saturday and Sunday in the month of April, we will be hosting a bake sale, featuring baked goodies from a different employee of Parlor each day! So treat your self to something sweet, because all money raised will go directly to Clean Ocean Action!
Speaking of treating yourself, add any of our “Moment of Wellness” treatments to your haircut or color service, and Parlor will donate the full cost of your extra relaxation straight to C.O.A.! Options include upgrading to a “Balance” shampoo, our extra long shampoo option incorporating Aveda’s Balancing Aromas, as well as the “Glow” treatment, featuring Aveda’s Perfecting Plant Peel system, which performs like a 30% glycolic peel, using only the power of plants!
If baked goods, relaxation or yummy candles aren’t your style, you can always make a contribution straight to our Crowdrise fundraising page:
From everyone at Parlor, thank you for your support!
