I love baths! The only time I take a shower is when I wash my hair. Otherwise, you’ll find me soaking in hot, sudsy water – usually with the addition of an Aveda oil, like Beautifying or Stress Fix for their aromatherapy benefits. Morning or evening, it doesn’t matter, I’m relaxing and rejuvenating, feeling warm and, of course, clean and refreshed. Usually, I take a big plastic glass of ice water with me to sip luxuriously while I bathe.
WATER! We are fortunate to turn on a faucet any time and have unlimited clean water. It’s so easy for us to take for granted. But, not so for the 663 MILLION people in the world who don’t have access to clean water. That’s 1 in 10 people worldwide. In many developing countries, the women walk four miles every, single day to fill a container for their family’s daily drinking, cooking and washing needs. I can’t even imagine this hardship.
This Earth Month, our focus at TallGrass is to remind people that clean water is precious. We’re joining Aveda in support of Western Resource Advocates, a nonprofit working to protect water in the western United States. We’re raising funds through a few projects at our company (details are below) and we’re spreading the word about water conservation.
We encourage you to think about your own water usage this month – and in the future. For me, daily baths will be just as lovely by using less water!
