Most of us know that THE BODY SHOP is 'the original, ethical and natural beauty brand' out there. They believe that:
"THE WORLD IS OUR SOURCE OF BEAUTY
Real, natural, beautiful. That’s how we see the world.
We search the globe for the finest natural ingredients, hand-picking the cream of the crop to create precious botanical oils and extracts that enrich our formulas and deliver that feel good skin factor.
We’ve always believed in something revolutionary, that our business can be a force for good. We play fair, help our communities to thrive, enriching people and the planet.
Our formulas are skin-loving, 100% vegetarian and never tested on animals.
You’ll feel so good, inside and out.
ENRICH NOT EXPLOIT"
But, recently they have been putting even more thought into being eco friendly too, with their mantra
WASTE NOT WANT NOT
So this season, they have come up with some sustainable Christmas ideas, using creative upcycling ways to turn their 'empties into essentials!' I LOVE them, they are crafty, fun and imaginative!
So here are just a few ideas, of how to turn your packaging into something useful and beautiful...
UPCYCLED BODY BUTTER WREATH
Make some personalised bauble doubles for your Christmas tree, or maybe to sell at the Christmas fayre?
UPCYCLED TREE BAUBLE
Go eco crazy by creating your own thoughtful self-watering eco system…
MAKE YOUR OWN TERRARIUM
A perfect moment this Christmas will be when someone receives a gift and as lovely as it may be, it's placed aside, whilst they play with the box! #classic
