Shampoos always make us feel worried about the animals that may have died and suffered for our sakes, as they were used for testing, but they also harm the planet. Now Boots will be introducing the Carbon Reduction Label to accompany the launch of Botanics and Ingredients range shampoos with a reduced carbon footprint. This means they were made with more care and concern for the environment.
Boots will also be giving advice to consumers on how they can reduce their personal carbon footprints. Andrew Jenkins, Sustainable Development Manager, Boots the Chemists, said: Working with the Carbon Trust has enabled Boots to measure and subsequently reduce the carbon footprint of everyday products such as shampoo by as much as 20 per cent.
