In 1976 Anita Roddick, foundered the body shop and believed that a shop could b a force for good in the world. Not only would she provide good body care but she would source her produce ethically and recycle. The money that the body shop makes goes into the campaigns that the body shop run. The body shop explains that women feature highly in their consideration. The shop in Durham is fairly spacious however the gap between each sets of shelves is fairly narrow. Once you enter you are usually treated with an Ireland of their current new or most loved products. Testing kits are available for you to use for patch testing. The shelves are glass and each product is in a recyclable pack edging. The gift boxes are cardboards for ease of recycling and you can choose what goes into them. The staff are most helpful and they smile. If you have not got a body shop card they will mention the savings you can have if you where to have one. The shop is chocker block with choices to make for one self so why not treat yourself to time at the body shop.
Accessibility at The Body Shop
Whilst the bottles do not have braille markers to help you define which product you are using on your own shelf, they do have their own defined shape. Possibly making it easier to choose from. Furthermore staff are more than willing to help you pick out a product of your own choice. A helpful thing when you are blind. Furthermore you can patch test a product with the example bottles. Unfortunately there is a large slightly sloped step into the building.
