In cel­e­bra­tion of Earth Month and to con­tinue its world­wide quest for clean wa­ter, Aveda, the lead­ing botan­i­cal pro­fes­sional sa­lon brand, col­lab­o­rated with 24 cel­e­brated artists from var­i­ous fields in an auc­tion for Aveda Light the Way Can­dle 2016. Per­son­al­i­ties like Ito Kish, Mau­reen DISINI, and ann ong, ren­dered their cre­ative in­ter­pre­ta­tions of what clean wa­ter means to them. Us­ing an Aveda can­dle as the base ma­te­rial, the artists’ cre­ations were auc­tioned to ben­e­fit Ban­tay Ka­likasan. A stand­out was Jun Jun ablaza’s “Un­der the Red Co­ral Branches” chair, which sym­bol­ises the need to pro­tect the oceans. Crafted from a 100-year-old an­cient gnarled plan­ta­tion cof­fee tree trunk, the art chair was adorned by faux co­ral branches and an an­tique glass buoy used as a hang­ing vo­tive holder. For the past ten years, Aveda Philip­pines, to­gether with its global net­work of sa­lons, ex­pe­ri­ence cen­tres, and part­ners have raised a to­tal of USD$38 mil­lion to sup­port clean wa­ter projects.
