Biography/History

The Body Shop's in-store "Thumbs-Up for Reconciliation" campaign was held in National Reconciliation Week in 1998, and involved over 100,000 people leaving their thumb print as a sign of their commitment to a "united Australia which respect this land of ours, values our Indigenous heritage and provides justice and equity for all". The Body Shop won an Australian Human Rights Commision Award for this campaign on the 10th of December 1998, at the 50th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Conference. A judging panel noted the company's commitment to reconciliation through its vibrant and community-orientated campaign that included a comprehensive staff training program.
