AUTO BODY BROOKLYN is a body shop that has a social activism mission. They were founded in 2010 with the aim of educating the public on the importance of good health and providing a place where people could come and get advice on how to live a healthier lifestyle. The shop also offers products for the public, such as facial products, anti-aging creams and anti-stress lotions.
The Body Shop, a company based in Brighton, England, opened in 1976. It is a multi-brand cosmetics group that is part of Natura &Co. Aside from its wide range of products, the company has also developed an active social conscience. From its inception, the company has been dedicated to ethically sourced ingredients. Besides donating money to charity, it has promoted other social causes such as animal protection, environmental protection and human rights.
Founders of the Body Shop were Peggy Short and Jane Saunders. They were inspired by the philosophy of the French beauty store L’Occitane, which offered natural, sustainable and cruelty-free skin care products. In addition, they decided to create a different approach to beauty, making it available for all skin types.
As a result, the Body Shop has established a global presence with over 3,000 retail stores across 70 countries. Many of its products are fair trade. Moreover, its packaging is refillable.
The Body Shop has launched its Be Seen Be Heard campaign, in partnership with the Office of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth. The campaign aims to improve young people’s participation in public life. It is based on a survey conducted with 27,000 individuals from 26 countries, which offers a number of insights into preconceptions and structural barriers to engagement.
In order to increase the level of young people’s involvement in the political process, the body shop has launched a new Youth Collective. This team of 12 young people under 30 will help shape the future of the brand. They will also provide input to the Body Shop’s Executive Leadership Team.
The Body Shop’s action hub has also been introduced, which provides resources for civic engagement. This includes a polling place locator, a vote-by-mail status checker, and other voter resources. The Body Shop has also launched a weekly civic challenge, which encourages consumers to act on important issues.
