The ability to drive positive change really is in our hands. Small everyday choices we make can help protect and enrich this beautiful, crazy world we live in.
The Body Shop has made a commitment to Enrich Not ExploitTM
Now we’re asking you to do the same. Embrace your inner activist and join The Body Shop #INOURHANDS movement. Take the short quiz and make your pledge today;whether it be meat free Mondays to help reduce greenhouse gasses or volunteering in your local community, we can all help to protect and enrich the planet and its people. Because united, we’re stronger.
Every pledge Tweet we receive we will make a donation to the World Land Trust to protect 1m2 of endangered rainforest, which will support bio-bridge projects in Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.
We need to educate everyone, particularly the sceptics, about the personal and local benefits of sustainability.
I believe in bringing sustainable development to the forefront of everybody’s development, from insisting that corporations are environmentally conscious to everyday actions on an individual level. It’s important to acknowledge that everyone comes from a different situation and there isn’t one method that fits all – whether it’s because of cultural differences, income, class, or health. I try to encourage educating everyone about the ways in which they can contribute to sustainable development, whether it’s eating vegan for three days a week or giving support to eco-friendly companies. Start small and make a big difference.
