The Body Shop has always believed that business can and should be a force for good. For nearly 40 years we’ve been delivering on that belief. In that time, the world has changed a great deal and now it’s time for us to change too.
We asked ourselves how we could continue to make a real, positive difference in the world over the next 40 years.
The answer is our Enrich Not Exploit™ Commitment.
The Body Shop’s Commitment will help us deliver the greatest impact as a sustainable business, making a positive difference in people’s lives, now and in the future.
As a business we seek to protect and nurture the environment and society in every part of our business:
ingredients, products, packaging, stores, communities and campaigns. “It’s in our hands” means we acknowledge that we have the power to make positive changes in the world and make a positive difference in people’s lives.
This is why EINE is an ideal partner to launch the first product to mark the new commitment from The Body Shop.
EINE, a rebellious, yet socially conscious artist has long shared these views through his mission of spreading positive colourful art messaging around the world.
EINE first discovered The Body Shop in the eighties, and was impressed with the pioneering spirit of the company and felt The Body Shop was “Ground breaking and boundary-pushing. They were talking about Fair Trade and environmental issues way before it was on the global agenda.
A global company with a very big and vocal conscience”.
He believes the ethos of the brand now is as strong as ever and that the Enrich Not Exploit™ commitment is “so positive – supporting local producers as well as global issues that really need to be on the agenda.”
THIS IS WHY THE BODY SHOP® X EINE = CHANGE
PRODUCT COLLABORATION WORKS IN PERFECT SYNERGY, “THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT, USING AN AMAZING INGREDIENT - BUY IT BECAUSE IT WORKS AND BECAUSE IT DOES SOME GOOD.”
“IT MAKES ME REALLY PROUD TO BE ABLE TO USE MY ART TO SPREAD POSITIVE MESSAGES AROUND THE WORLD. WHEN I CAN, I ENJOY WORKING WITH LOCAL PEOPLE TO INVOLVE EVERYONE IN THE COMMUNITY IN CHANGING THEIR ENVIRONMENT.”
