Everything Vegan: The Body Shop relies again for sustainability
The topic of sustainability is now (luckily) in many beauty companies now greatly written. The Body Shop is no exception and has progressed for years with a good example, when it comes to developing fair and environmentally friendly toiletries. Now the fire has once again stuck a new considerable goal: Over the next two years, 100 percent of their products should receive the "Vegan Trademark".
Dean Westmoreland is a shoe restorer - also known as a cobbler - from Bradford, Yorkshire. He began his career working as a footwear specialist at JJB Sports before he became an apprentice shoemaker. In 2017, with ten years of experience under his belt, he opened his own shoe repair business named Yorkshire Sole.
In his television debut on Wednesday's episode, Dean takes on the important task of repairing the treasured pair of leather running shoes that trailblazing athlete Audrey Brown wore while competing in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

She sadly died in 2005 at the age of 92 and left her grandson Tom the precious bespoke leather running spikes wrapped in a tea towel. Bringing them into the workshop for repair, Tom revealed that he had followed in his grandmother's footsteps and was passionate about sport too, but sadly the shoes had been neglected and were in a bad way.
However, after Dean works his magic on them, they look almost brand new. Tom is almost lost for words and visibly emotional at the transformation - and viewers at home will be too!

Speaking to The Yorkshire Post, Dean revealed he was daunted by the task. "I always like a challenge. I thought they were just going to fall to dust, but you could see they were well made, so I thought they could stand being repaired," he said.
He added that he was moved by Tom's reaction to the restored shoes. He said. "The emotion you see on camera, it's real. No one is acting."
"It's all about detail to me. Using hand tools, hand welting and treating each pair of shoes as my own. All this and more seemed to have been forgotten."
Away from his work as a cobbler, Dean lives in Clayton with his fiancée, Leigh. The couple share two sons, six-year-old Oscar and four-year-old Otis.
