About: Aveda, The Art and Science of Pure Flower and Plant Essences, was founded in 1978 with the goal of providing beauty industry professionals with high performance, botanically based products that would be better for service providers and their guests, as well as for the planet. Aveda manufactures professional plant-based hair care, skin care, makeup, Pure-Fume™ and lifestyle products. Headquartered in Blaine, Minnesota, Aveda is available in Aveda stores, and in nearly 7,000 professional hair salons and spas in 24 countries worldwide. Our funding of new wind energy sources generates enough wind energy to offset 100% of the electricity used by our primary manufacturing, distribution and headquarters facility in Minnesota, USA. Aveda purchases Windsource from Xcel Energy –wind-generated electricity equal to the amount used in our normal course of doing business. Our Windsource purchases increases the amount of energy available to the entire power grid from which we draw our electricity. This energy is generated on and purchased from nineteen wind farms in Minnesota.
