Children’s Hospice Cleaning


In the lead up to winter, volunteers of Health and Beauty Benelux came together to clean and spruce up the Kinderhospice Binnenveld. The hospice has long been a refuge and home-away-from-home for many children suffering from life-threatening illnesses, and thanks to the team of volunteers, it was made cosy and comfortable for its patients.

Enhancing Lives of Refugees


Volunteers from A.S. Watson’s Health & Beauty Benelux Office reached out to refugees at an asylum centre and helped enhance their kitchen-garden facilities. We hope that the refugees can start growing their own vegetables and meet their own needs more sustainably.

Green Store


As part of its CSR strategy, Kruidvat opened a Green Store with a low environmental footprint. The store has received an A++++ energy label, the highest rating achievable. Its features include an insulation maximising sliding door, 100% LED lighting, energy efficient beverage coolers, 28 solar panels that generate approximately 4,000 kWh per year, the elimination of natural gas for heating and the use of more environmentally friendly delivery trucks. The progressive store also serves as a testing ground for many new environmental initiatives.
