LUSH Steps Forward To Raise $$$ For Japan

With 1600 staff members, 145 shops, and a manufacturing facility located in Japan, LUSH is stepping to support local organizations.

To aid in the relief effort, they are selling limited edition products with 100% of the proceeds going to various Japanese charities.

The Rising Sun soap ($5.95) resembles the Japanese flag and softens the skin with a sweet cherry fragrance.

All proceeds from the soap will go directly to Peace Boat, a Japan-based non-profit organization. Since the earthquake, Peace Boat has been organizing volunteers, transporting aid and providing hot meals to those affected by the disaster.

LUSH has also launched three limited edition Charity Pots ($5.00/each). This rich body lotion is made with Fair Trade organic cocoa butter with a hint of ylang ylang and geranium. 1

·         Rescue Stock Yard – a Japanese domestic disaster non-profit that has started emergency relief and preparation for long-term support for thousands of survivors.

·         NGO Collaboration Centre for HANSHIN QUAKE Rehabilitation members of this center have been in the Miyagi Prefecture providing support for the victims.
