Bag that saves lives from The Body Shop

This is a strange picture to send out as publicity as you can't see the bottom of the bag which is really nice. What you can see is Tamara Mellon OBE who has just launched this limited edition shopper with all the profits going to stopping the sex trafficking of young people and children. Available from the 6th October it will be £4 well spent and you'll actually use it - it's that attractive!

The Stop Sex Trafficking of Children and Young People campaign is a three-year global campaign in partnership with NGO ECPAT (End Child Prostitution, Pornography and Trafficking) an international network of children’s rights organisations. The campaign aims to put an end to the trafficking of children and young people, guarantee their rights to be protected from exploitation and inspire long-term change to protect children and young people. The campaign has been launched in over 50 The Body Shop markets and in just two years has already collected 6.7million signatures and raised over US$3million worldwide. At the time of writing the campaign had presented petitions to 20 governments around the world and already inspired governments to change laws in eight countries. Recently, the campaign presented the biggest petition on human rights in history to the EU. At the end of September the campaign will be presented to the Human Rights Council in Geneva.
