From our very humble beginnings at LUSH, our founders have been conscious of how our products and business practices interact with the environment. In doing so we've used creative and innovative solutions to make a positive impact on the planet.
Sustainability is a company-wide priority that flows through our products, from our hands to yours. With over 900 stores worldwide and an ever-emerging global presence we are committed to becoming more sustainable the more that we grow. Environmental and social stewardship are critical elements in the business decisions that we make on a daily basis. We know that we can always do better in all that we do at LUSH.
Where wrapping paper is used, it is 100% recycled and recyclable. Some of it is also biodegradable, and even compostable.
Not only do we invent innovative ways of creating eco-friendly naked products, but we also make sure we are environmentally conscious when packaging is unavoidable.
We package our products as simply as possible, so that none our customer’s money is spent on excessive and wasteful presentation. This ensures that all money that is spent on our products is for the quality of the product itself.
Our liquid products are sold in 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and are 100% recyclable. We encourage our customers to be creative with the re-use of product pots when they have finished the product inside. These can be used for paint pots, to grow herbs and small plants, stationary holders, and so on. Alternatively, customers can bring back five of these empty black pots to receive a free Fresh Face Mask. This ensures that all of our used packaging is recycled, rather than simply thrown away, to end up in landfill.
We create re-usable gift packaging that is almost just as exciting as the products inside. Our range of tins and boxes are so beautiful, you woudn't ever want to throw them away.
When buying individual product as gifts, we encourage people to present it in one of our stunning knot wraps. These are based on the Japanese tradition of ‘furoshiki’, where the wrapping of the gift becomes a part of the gift itself. Our furoshiki scarves are made out of recycled plastic or unique vintage scarves.
