It’s instinctive for us Singaporeans to drink water straight from the tap, wash our faces in it, and cook with it, so much so that it’s easy to forget that others don’t necessarily enjoy the same luxury of clean water.

Clean water is scarce in some developing nations, where more than 4,000 children die each day from the consumption of contaminated water. And it’s important for us to not take this precious resource for granted.

So this Earth Month, why not join Aveda in raising awareness and funds to support local projects that encourage the sustainability of our environment.

Take a 4.8km walk with the brand on April 12, at the Aveda Walk for Water event. The distance is symbolic of the average distance women in developing countries have to walk each day to collect water for their families.

Participants will also get to take part in a series of fun and interactive activities centred around caring for the well-being of the environment and one another.

It’ll make a meaningful Sunday outing with the family – more details on how you can take part in the Aveda Walk for Water event over at our sister publication Shape here.
