The Body Shop takes over Westminster Bridge to launch our Bio-Bridges campaign

On Tuesday 24 May, The Body Shop team transformed Westminster Bridge in London for the day, installing five six-foot topiary monkeys to mark the launch of our new Bio-Bridges programme which aims to regenerate 75 million square metres of forest and protect it from exploitation, poaching and sustainable harvesting by 2020

The monkeys represent a rare and endangered species, the Red Shanked Douc, which is found in the Kne Nuoc Trong forest in North Central Vietnam, where The Body Shop’s first Bio-Bridges project is located.

The Body Shop has been working with conservation experts the World Land Trust to identify endangered areas around the world and develop Bio-Bridges to help endangered species reconnect and travel safely across deforested or degraded lands. The installation of the monkeys marked the launch of the programme, which will be funded through customer transactions this summer, with each transaction restoring 1 square metre of rainforest in Vietnam.

A look back at our Christmas WaterAid Campaign- a success!

As part of our 2015 global Christmas campaign, we partnered with WaterAid to raise money to provide more than 3,000 people in rural Ethiopia access to safe drinking water.

With your help we sold 4.4million specially selected gifts throughout the Christmas season, and raised more than £195,000 to help to transform the lives of over 3,000 people in rural Ethiopia!

WHY WATERAID?

WaterAid is an international non-profit organisation with a mission to transform the lives of the world’s poorest and most marginalised people by improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.

The Body Shop has always campaigned to make a positive difference in the world. We wanted to work with a partner who could significantly impact those most affected by the water and sanitation crisis – there are a staggering 650 million people who live without safe water, and 2.3 billion without adequate sanitation. By working in partnership with WaterAid and with the help of all of our customers (that’s you!) we have helped transform the lives of over 3,000 people. And we think that’s pretty great!
