Each April AVEDA Salons and Institutes in Puget Sound raise funds to support clean water. Since 2008, local salons and institutes have raised well over $1 million for Puget Soundkeeper’s clean water programs. Thanks to the annual Aveda Earth Month efforts, Puget Soundkeeper is patrolling and cleaning up more waterways, working on more policy issues, establishing more protections, and educating and engaging more people than ever before to protect everyone’s right to clean water.

Gary’s inspiration and passion was shared with thousands of people over the arc of his life. As a philanthropic leader in his community and the Professional Beauty Industry, Gary personally poured his time, energy and love, into causes such as Puget Soundkeeper. Gary’s exuberance and outstanding leadership created a salon community whose focus was more than just great hair and skin. His core belief was that with a little effort a small group of people could make an immeasurable difference.
