The File a Foot and Detangling Combs we buy are made from birch certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), ensuring that the wood we use is sourced from forests that maintain their biodiversity.
From the beginning, Timber Productions’ growth has been heavily supported by The Body Shop. Today it remains an excellent example of a successful and socially responsible company: employees are paid a fair wage and have steady work.
Timber Productions are based in Barnaul in the Altai region of Siberia, Russia – which covers an area twice the size of England. Barnaul is a large, industrial city with a population of around 700,000 people.
Good employment opportunities remain limited in the Altai region, so worker benefits are extremely important at Timber Productions. These benefits include fair wages, sick leave and health insurance.
CARING FOR THE COMMUNITY
Timber Productions has supported the local Altai regional government with funds for several projects, including a health and fitness centre, drug awareness and rehabilitation centre and a nursing home for the elderly.
PROTECTING THE YOUNG
Profits from Timber Productions have funded several local initiatives for the young. These include a hospital for children suffering from tuberculosis, a refuge for abused children and a children’s orphanage.
