I guess you know I am already a fan of The Body Shop (and if you wish to know, this connect to the « Fair Trade Beauty » with this article). But I even become more a fan of this brand when I came to know about « Get Paper Industries » (a WFTO certified organization). Back in 2011, I was visiting different WFTO certified workshops where I met and interviewed the craftsmen as part of my master thesis. Thanks to this work, this how I can to know that Get Paper Industries is making all sorts of packaging for the Body Shop.
So in this visit, I was able to look at many beautiful Christmas papers, even though it was at least June. Thousands and thousands of boxes!!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t take pictures but The Body Body shop has released a nice video about it, which is presented in a very cute and polish way. For some of you who know the packaging of The Body Shop, you may remember that this is a soft cardboard and not the lokta (Nepali) paper quality. However, the video is still interesting!
For your information, The Body Shop remains a major, if not main the customer of Get Paper Industries. I still remember the answer that 90% of the production is dedicated to The Body Shop’s packaging!
