PLANT A SEED FOR LIFE
The Body Shop is dedicated to help protect the earth’s varied biodiversity and to help preserve and enrich life on our planet.
*Update - September 2016: Thank you. we have planted 350,000 seeds with our partners and their local communities who will continue to plant the rest of the seeds over the coming months and protect biodiversity by enhancing the growth of healthy nativetrees in these degraded areas.
When you choose Oils of Life™ skincare, you help us to plant seeds and make a positive difference. In partnership with World Land Trust we aim to plant 1 million seeds of native tree species in degraded areas within seasonal dry forest in the Cerro Blanco Protected Forest. The planting will be followed by monitoring and maintenance actions to promote regeneration of forest cover.
The project will take place over a two-year period and will commence in August 2015. Seeds will be collected for storage and preserved for planting, and later in the year the plantation site will be prepared for sowing.
The first sowing will take place during early 2016 to coincide with the rains. During April to June seeds will be cleaned and weeds removed from the first season’s germinated seedlings. Then through July to December, a further collection of seeds will take place.
