Earth is home to millions of species, including humans. The Body Shop International has always campaigned against animal testing for cosmetic purposes and we're in complete agreement. We're behind those who care and campaign for our two, four and - in some cases - 100 legged friends, ensuring that every species is afforded the respect, life and compassion it deserves.Visit group
The 'natural environment' is everything, living and non-living, that occurs naturally on earth. We know it simply as 'home' and, if we continue to abuse it, it won't be around for our grandchildren's children. We must clean up our act quickly and support our eco-warriors to help preserve our beautiful planet.Visit group
Human Rights refer to the "basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled". So whether it's the right to education, freedom of expression or the basic right to food and water - we believe that they are ALL important. So we celebrate and support those who stand up for what they believe and make noise for those who can't - it's the true spirit of brother & sisterhood.Visit group
