This Christmas, every purchase big or small with The Body Shop will help protect and re-wild over 10 million square meters of forest in England and Armenia. This will support World Land Trust and Woodland Trust as part of The Body Shop International’s World Bio-Bridges Mission. Without action, the wildlife in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley on the English-Welsh border will become increasingly isolated and restricted to small pockets of disconnected woodland. The Caucasus Wildlife Refuge is located in a biodiversity hotspot and home to one of Armenia’s most threatened species, the Caucasian leopard. Protecting these forests and their precious wildlife means they can continue to enchant future generations with their revitalising beauty and biodiversity.
Besides their Christmas contribution to World Land Trust and Woodland Trust, The Body Shop did not forget about their fellow NGO’s partners whom they have been working with over the years. The Body Shop Malaysia contributed to Sisters In Islam with RM31,673, Women’s Aid Organisation with 31,521.80 from the sale of Candles of Conscience, Association of Women Lawyers with RM6,217.40 from End Child Marriage and Malaysian Aids Foundation with RM4,713.80 from the sale of condoms in their stores. RM400,080 was also donated to Wildlife Conservation Society through their Kick The Bag Habit campaign: funds are generated from the sale of their paper bags (RM0.50) should customers need them, or RM0.50 donated by The Body Shop if customers refuse a bag.
Present at the launch was Datin Mina Cheah-Foong, Managing Director of The Body Shop Malaysia, “Christmas is a time of giving, and it has never felt better when you get to be part of a community that can create an impact by conserving the wildlife habitat and protecting those that are critically endangered. We have many gifts and products available in store and online, which are suitable for everyone. For every purchase made, know that you are helping to save the endangered wildlife species from being extinct and conserving the habitat. So come into our stores today and do your good this Christmas!”
Of course what is Christmas without The Body Shop's Limited Edition Christmas range consisting of three delicious flavours - Peppermint Candy, Bon Bon Berry and Marshmallow Vanilla. Either you're looking for a body butter or a bubble bath or even a way to gift all three flavours to someone, they have it all thought out. You can even personalise your body butter with a customisable sticker that can be printed for you on the spot (only available at selected outlets)
For this year, The Body Shop has even changed their overall seasonal packaging to be more environmentally friendly, thus going the extra mile in doing their part to save the environment. If there is one brand I can get behind for their part in saving Mother Nature, it's definitely The Body Shop.
