Avon’s Hello Green Tomorrow Tops $5.5 Million

 

Avon Products Inc. recently announced that the Avon Hello Green Tomorrow project, a global fundraising and mobilization program, has topped $5.5 million since its 2010 launch, including $2 million raised in 2012 alone. Avon has contributed the funds to The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to tackle deforestation in Brazil and Indonesia, which are recognized as two of the most critical “hot spots” for deforestation worldwide.

Hello Green Tomorrow raises funds through the sale of special products in more than 50 countries by Avon Sales Representatives and online on Avon eCommerce sites. The company contributes all proceeds to help restore the Atlantic Forest in Brazil, in partnership with TNC, and the tropical forests of Indonesia, with WWF. These forests are among the most threatened in the world, and are important for mitigating climate change, supporting biodiversity and providing for the health and economic well-being of millions of people.

Avon, the company for women, is a leading global beauty company, with nearly $11 billion in annual revenue. As one of the world’s largest direct sellers, Avon is sold through more than 6 million active independent Avon Sales Representatives in over 100 countries.
