It’s never too early to make the world a fairer place, and this year, our pop-up advent calendars are bursting with goodness.
It may not yet be the festive season, but Advent calendars are being released earlier and earlier. So many sell out, so it’s important to order early on to avoid disappointment.
This year, The Body Shop are releasing three advent calendars for different price points on the 18th September. Each calendar includes a saving of at least £34.50 showing they’re good value for money for The Body Shop fans. I really like that each feature a ‘pop up’ style design on the top.
Each Advent calendar celebrates the wonderful Community Fair Trade partners from around the world who produce the products. One of their longest standing partnerships is with Tungteiya Women’s Association in northern Ghana. Since 1994 they’ve sourced Community Fair Trade Shea Butter from there, helping over 600 women across 11 villages with financial independence, healthcare and education projects. The calendars are reusable and recyclable making them more sustainable and kinder for the planet too.

With every Advent calendar, you’ll also find little facts about their Community Fair Trade partners or an act of kindness, so you can share some wonder and joy with your friends, family and community. You can even reuse the pop-ups as gift tags, and the drawers are great for storing crafts and other little bits and bobs, long after Christmas.
