From Monday, October 12, The Body Shop will hold a three-week in-store campaign called Miracle Treatment, in conjunction with the World Society for the Protection of Animals, to help the orangutans of Borneo.

Borneo’s orangutans are facing injury, disease and death as their habitat is destroyed by logging for the growing palm oil industry. WSPA works with the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation to fund the work of the world’s largest orangutan sanctuary, Nyaru Menteng, currently home to more than 650 rescued orangutans.

“Orangutans are facing enormous animal welfare issues as a direct result of human activity. With a little support from enough caring people, we can work together with WSPA towards a miracle for orangutans,” chief executive of The Body Shop Mark Kindness said.

“We’re asking all The Body Shop customers to get involved and become a part of the ‘Miracle Treatment’ to help more orangutans.”

There are a number of ways The Body Shop customers can achieve amazing results with their ‘Miracle Treatment’, including:

Giving a miracle – Donating to the Borneo Orangutan Sanctuary
Creating a miracle – Holding an event to raise funds
Buying a miracle – Wearing cute orangutan merchandise
Spreading the miracle – Involving friends
