Bags to Branches AU & NZ
All the carrier bags you’ll find at Lush are made from 100% recycled and recyclable paper and printed with vegetable inks. By choosing recycled paper, we are able to drastically reduce the water and CO2 footprint of our bags, straight from the get go!
Although our biodegradable carrier bags have been designed to reduce their environmental impact in incredible ways, we recognise that reducing waste and reusing items is even better than recycling. Therefore, we want to encourage our customers to consume packaging consciously and support a reduce and reuse lifestyle.
What if a carrier bag simply can’t be avoided? We get it, there are times you’re just in need of a carrier. Never fear, we will still be offering our paper carrier bags in various sizes.
We have taken the decision to add a 10c charge to all of our bags in Australia[New Zealand] as part of our Bags to Branches initiative. This means that 100% of our carrier bag charge (minus gst) will go into our regenerative fund, also known as Re:Fund. Re:Fund focuses on supporting environmentally regenerative projects around the world.
So if you do need to grab one of our paper carrier bags, you can rest assured your 10c will be going to a great cause.
Please reuse your Lush bag to your heart’s content! Then recycle or compost it when it’s ready for a new life.
