 AVEDA ANNOUNCES EARTH DAY BEAUT-A-THON TO SUPPORT ENVIRONMENTAL
 EFFORTS THROUGH THE 'GIVE TO THE EARTH' FOUNDATION
 MINNEAPOLIS, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Aveda Corporation, the innovator in plant- and flower-based beauty products, will be supporting Earth Day 1992 with the Aveda Beaut-A-Thon, makeover for planet earth. Nationwide, Aveda salons will be opening their doors on April 26, the Sunday after Earth Day, to offer haircuts and beauty treatments at reduced prices. All proceeds will go to the Give to the Earth Foundation.
 Give to the Earth is a not-for-profit foundation that supports environmental programs and grassroots organizations committed to environmental action and improving the quality of life for earth's inhabitants. Through funding efforts for the land, for the water, for the air, for the people, for the animals, and for the forests and wildlife, the Aveda Earth Day Beaut-A-Thon and Give to the Earth are supporting a makeover for planet earth.
 Give to the Earth has selected the following organizations to benefit from the Earth Day event: Clean Water Action, Habitat for Humanity, National Toxics Campaign, Pediatric AIDS Foundation, The Humane Society of the United States and the International Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture. Each organization will be involved on both the national and local level by working in conjunction with the individual salons throughout the country.
 Aveda expects more than 2,000 salons to participate in the Earth Day event. Last year, Aveda sponsored a nationwide hair cut-a-thon that raised over $120,000 for tree reforestation. Due to the event's success, Aveda has expanded the program to include all beauty treatments including facials, makeovers, stress treatments and more. Aveda hair stylists, as well as cosmetic and skin experts, will be donating their time to help fund environmental efforts. Customers may simply call 1-800-328-0849 to find the participating salon nearest them.
 The Aveda Earth Day Beaut-A-Thon is an opportunity for customers to do something good for the planet while doing something good for themselves. Your next haircut can do a world of good!
