April is an exciting month for us here at Gila Rut because we are celebrating Earth Month! Every year, we partner with one local organization and one global organization in an effort to protect clean water and to be the best stewards of the Earth that we can be.

This year’s local organization is the San Diego chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, which works tirelessly to keep our beaches and coastal waters clean. We also donate to the Global Greengrants Fund, who partner with Aveda to set up clean water systems in third world countries.

Meet Michael – Manager at Gila Rut


How long have you been working for Gila Rut?

In March, I will be celebrating 8 amazing years with Gila Rut! I met the owner, Keri, when I moved here in 2000. Seven years later, I phoned her and said I was coming to work for her company. I knew it would be a perfect match.
