Every year I look forward to attending The Body Shop Christmas event as it’s the time we get to check out their latest Christmas Gifts launching in stores. This year, The Body Shop hosted an enchanted forest evening with top editors, beauty bloggers and social influencers from all over.
When we arrived, most of us were quite awed by the spectacular forestry set up. There were seven experiential stations which we could enjoy such as Facial Art, Hand Massage, Personalised Body Butter, Connecting The Bio-Bridge, Gifts Review, Mad Hatter Theatrical Dessert and Photo Booth.
At each station, we get to win a prize. To top off the excitement, guests were encouraged to review and share their product experience on social media which led them to be one of the top 10 lucky winners to win seasonal and limited-edition Christmas gifts.
Each year, The Body Shop will pledge their support to various charitable organization. This year, they are pledging their support to World Land Trust and Woodland Trust as part of The Body Shop International’s World Bio-Bridges Mission. With every purchase big or small, The Body Shop will help protect and re-wild over 10 million square meters of forest in England and Armenia. This will support the wildlife in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley on the English-Welsh border will has become increasingly isolated and restricted/ 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 revitalizing beauty and biodiversity.
Besides, contributing to World Land Trust and Woodland Trust, they also supported other various NGO’s partners whom who have been working closely with The Body Shop such as below:
- Sisters In Islam with RM31,673
- Women’s Aid Organization with 31,521.80 from the sale of Candles of Conscience
- Association of Women Lawyers with RM6,217.40 from End Child Marriage
- Malaysian Aids Foundation with RM4,713.80 from the sale of condoms in The Body Shop stores.
Apart from that, The Body Shop has also donated RM400,080 to Wildlife Conservation Society through its Kick The Bag Habit campaign: funds are generated from the sale of paper bags (RM0.50) should customers need them, or RM0.50 donated by The Body Shop if customers refuse a bag.
It was certainly a night filled with fun and excitement for everyone. We look forward to more next year!
