Saving the environment is for life and for Christmas
LUSH HAS NOW SOLD OVER 57.6M SHAMPOO BARS GLOBALLY, SAVING THE USE OF 167.5 MILLION PLASTIC BOTTLES!
With awareness of climate change at an all time high, many of us have been ditching the bottle in favour of naked products. Reducing packaging is something Lush has been working on for many, many years. In fact, solid shampoo bars were invented by Mo Constantine (Lush Co-founder) and Stan Krysztal (cosmetic chemist) in 1987, for Cosmetics to Go, the former mail order company owned by the founders of Lush.
Lush has been making this cult product for over 30 years. And the most curious thing of all is that this discovery was the result of a mistake!
“In Lush we work in an industry where the packaging costs the customer more than the product. Now, the customer needs to worry about how to recycle something they didn’t want to buy in the first place. This seems like a raw deal to us. If we can cut out all the plastic packaging, we can give our customers better value for money”
