Grazia partners with Boots for sustainable beauty campaign

David Murphy

Women’s magazine Grazia has partnered with Boots UK to launch a campaign centred around sustainable beauty, with the aim of encouraging women to better understand why and how to incorporate sustainable beauty into the heart of their day-to-day routines. The campaign is live now and runs until 22 November.

It comes as the world focuses on more sustainable practices in the wake of COP26, and follows research conducted by Grazia in its Game Changers 3.0 study that showed that 85 per cent of women believe that brands need to do more when it comes to supporting causes and showing definitive action.

Wider Bauer Media research found that six in 10 people are open to living more sustainably, with education being one of the most influential factors when it comes to increasing more sustainable behaviours. The new campaign therefore focuses on informing on best practice, providing tips, and suggesting easy changes that audiences can make.

The campaign launches with a Boots and Grazia co-branded IGTV panel published on Grazia’s Instagram page, covering Boots UK’s sustainability mission and targets. This will cover the retailer’s operational ‘Bootprint, and look at how Boots is helping customers to be more sustainable through its recycling scheme and incentives, highlighting the  products that will help customer be more sustainable. The panel will be chaired by Grazia Editor Hattie Brett, and feature Lucy Reynolds, Vice President and Director of Communications, CSR and Sustainability at Boots UK; David MacDonald, Vice President, Communications, No7 Beauty Company; Millie Kendall MBE, CEO, British Beauty Council; and beauty influencer Emma Hoareau.

Grazia has also published an advertorial on how to be a change champion in the current issue of the publication. In addition, there will be a series of online advertorials, a Reel on Grazia’s Instagram page and sponsorship of three episodes of Grazia’s Beauty Life Lessons Podcast.

“Our readers have told us that they are more engaged with social issues than ever before and feel a responsibility to make positive change to the world,” said Grazia Editor, Hattie Brett. “It’s been great to work with Boots, a partner who shares the same ideal as our audience: that you can love beauty but make more sustainable choices. We hope together we can influence our audiences to make small changes that not only change their lives but ultimately impact the world that we live in too.”
