Earth Month 2019
Capretti Cares: Earth Month 2019
What do you think is our most precious commodity?
I suppose, depending on your own personal situation and experiences, the answer to that question can vary greatly. But one commodity that we all rely on is water. Water has been called “the essence of life,” with good reason. We literally cannot live without it.
For a very long time, Aveda has felt strongly about protecting clean water. Since 2007 they have raised funds for clean water during Earth Month.
The salon owners and staff at Capretti and Co. have devoted a lot and time over the years in line with the Aveda mission to raise money for clean water. We’ve had cut-athons, walks for clean water, and bake sales. Some of our creative personnel have spent time crafting various items to sell so they could donate the profits. We care for the world we live in and want to give back.
This year we decided that we wanted to focus our efforts closer to home, and picked a local Pittsburgh charity.
It’s no secret that our beautiful rivers have played, and continue to play, a huge role in the development of our city. They are a precious resource that can provide so many benefits to us.
So this year we are donating our Earth Month proceeds to Friends of the Riverfront.
We just love their mission to “Build safe, clean, and accessible riverfront trails as part of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail system to create and maintain an outstanding experience for trail users while providing economic, environmental, and health benefits to the Pittsburgh region.”

We want to extend an invitation for you to join us in supporting this wonderful nonprofit group as they strive to protect and restore our river fronts!
We will be holding a bake sale on Friday, April 26th as well as raffling off a gift basket of $500 worth of Aveda products! All proceeds will go to Friends of the Riverfront.
If you have supported our efforts in the past, we want to convey our gratitude and appreciation for helping us to reach our goals. Let’s make this our best year yet!
