The Palms Spa Supports Communities Protecting the Rainforest with Aveda’s 2010 Holiday Collection

Miami Beach, Fl (November 16, 2010) – The Palms Spa & Hotel helps Aveda make a difference this holiday season. Conscientious shoppers will find Aveda’s 2010 Holiday Collection at The Palms Spa. These limited-edition gift sets offer a sensory journey of harmony and tranquility while bring hope to 400 families and 400 acres of rainforest in Colombia.

Featuring many of Aveda’s all-time favorites, the Holiday 2010 collection celebrates the beauty of well-being while honoring women artisans and indigenous people in Colombia who helped make this season’s gift sets one of a kind.  Every boxed gift set contains either a free tagua nut hair band or organic cotton travel pouch with a handcrafted tagua nut closure—created by artisans in Bogota, Colombia.  This holiday season, Aveda is uniting with Hope for Women, a socially and environmentally responsible fair trade organization committed to providing sustainable employment for economically disadvantaged women worldwide.  Joining together to source tagua nut accessories helps carve out a better future for 400 families and helps preserve 400 acres of rainforest in Colombia.  Collecting tagua nuts helps provide incentive to local forest inhabitants to protect the trees and keep the rainforest intact. Aveda’s purchase is the largest fair trade, sustainably harvested rainforest product export in Columbia’s history.
