A lovely receipt, no charge! At the moment if you say HAPPY BUNNY at the till in Body Shop you get £3 off. No minimum spend, no catch. So I’ve just got some nice. hair conditioner for zero pence.

Picture credit, LUSH It wasn’t just foxes I tried to help, was pretty much any animal campaign by Greenpeace, WWF, The RSPCA or PETA. Save the whales, no to bunny testing, free range not battery hens… that sort of thing. I still very much agree with the anti cruelty message, but I am no longer a vegetarian. I do however prefer traceable meats from proper butchers and farmers, not […]
