No doubt you’ve been to The Body Shop. Even if you’re just passing by the store you can’t help but be drawn in by the soothing fragrances. I’ve been shopping at The Body Shop since the days when bath beads were popular and the “Extinct is Forever” Against Animal Testing t-shirts were a huge trend (circa 1995). Ever since its launch as a public company in 1985, The Body Shop has been committed to effecting social change. To learn more about their campaign history click here.
In 2009 The Body Shop launched a new campaign, partnering with ECPAT International to STOP Sex Trafficking of Children and Young People. Since its launch less than 2 year ago the campaign has gained the support of more than 40 countries worldwide. Proceeds from The Body Shop’s Soft Hands Kinds Heart hand cream was donated to ECPAT International and other organizations that fight trafficking.
In 2010 the campaign launched a petition calling upon governments to implement strict anti-trafficking policies and legislation, and to dedicate more resources to help victims of trafficking. The objective is to join hands with thousands of other signatories around the world by taking the petitions to the United Nations in 2011.
To date, the campaign petition has collected nearly five million signatures globally. The STOP campaign has overtaken The Body Shop’s iconic petition against animal testing. Wow!
