Stop Violence in the Home Lip Balm

June 10th, 2008 · No Comments · Domestic Violence, Fair Trade, The Body Shop

Domestic violence is one of the most horrible scourges of this society. It’s a crime that often goes unreported and results in the lives of women and their families being torn asunder.

The Body Shop Stop Violence in the Home Lip Care Stick is a small way to show support for ending this scourge. $2 of proceeds for each stick sold supports the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

The lip balm itself is made of organic beeswax, which confitions the skin and promotes healing by sealing in moisture. Another benefit of this product is that because the product is from The Body Shop, they acquire their beeswax from the tropical forests of Northwest Zambia, where fair trade practices help more than 3,000 beekeepers sustain their traditional way of life.

It’s not often that one purchase can help end domestic violence and support needy workers in emerging economies.
