Van Michael Salon wrote -Following the success of their 2012 month-long Earth Day celebration, Atlanta-based Van Michael Salons are proud to announce their 2013 Earth Month efforts and continued partnership with the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper. Last year, all five Atlanta-area Van Michael Salon locations joined together to raise funds and awareness for the local environmental advocacy organization by expanding their annual Earth Day initiatives to a month-long effort. Their efforts resulted in a $15,000 donation, which benefits the organization’s water sanitation and conservation initiatives. Throughout April 2013, the salons will aim to meet the same fundraising goal through various fundraising efforts.
Susan Dykstra, CEO of Van Michael Salon, states, “Van Michael Salons have long recognized the importance of clean water, both globally and in our back yard. We are proud to once again partner with the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper to aid their efforts in conserving the Chattahoochee River, which is the primary drinking water source for 3.5 million people. We at Van Michael Salon look forward to joining with our clients and the community to raise funds and awareness for this important cause.”
