HELPING OUR COMMUNITIES
We’re better when we care together
At The Body Shop we believe that acts of kindness keep spirits bright during uncertain times. We’ve been so inspired by the kindness we’re seeing from our community and colleagues across the globe that we wanted to share some of the ways we’ve been thanking health heroes with you.
As so often when we are faced with unprecedented challenges, brilliant, selfless people do astonishing things to help us all, often putting themselves at risk so that the rest of us can be as safe, healthy and secure as possible.
That is why The Body Shop UK are delighted to be donating nearly 400,000 products, including soaps and Hemp Hand Protectors, to the tirelessly brilliant NHS staff and volunteers fighting the effects of Covid-19. An additional 120,000 products have already been donated to hospitals and charities around the country.
We really hope this little act of kindness will help provide these wonderful people even the smallest amount of time to care for themselves when they are spending so much time caring for others. And to know that we really do appreciate the amazing work they are doing for us all.
We believe that self-care has never been so important, because it’s easier to be kinder to others when you are kind to yourself. That’s why we recently kicked off our #TimeToCare initiative, offering tips and advice on how to look after your mind and body, as well as care bundles to give yourself and send to others. Because we are all better when we care, and we care together.
At The Body Shop we will continue to search for ways to support key workers and local communities throughout this crisis.
Please keep safe and remember to be kind to, and respect, those around you… and to care for yourself at this difficult time.
OVER 1 MILLION PRODUCTS DONATED
It’s thanks to the tireless commitment, talent, strength and selflessness of our incredible healthcare workers across the world that we can take some comfort during such challenging times. We want you to know how much we appreciate you, so we’ve donated £4.5 million worth of products globally to support nurses, doctors, support staff and volunteers. Our care packages include shampoos, conditioners and shower gels to help staff feel refreshed on shift, as well as post-work pamper treats and hand creams for fingers that feel thirsty from frequent washing. Our gratitude to frontline workers grows greater each day but for now, we hope a little act of kindness will help provide them with even the smallest amount of respite while they go to extraordinary lengths to keep us safe.
Show friends, family and those in need that you’re thinking of them with our care packages. And, don’t forget about you – we need to look after ourselves so that we’re strong enough to look after others so why not treat yourself?
