LUSH Cosmetics is giving back and cutting back in an effort to save the Indonesian rainforest as well as the animals and people who live there. As part of its global public awareness campaign on palm oil and the devastation caused by its production, LUSH is launching two new products that give back to two new charities that work to save the animals and indigenous tribes of the rainforest.
All of the sales from LUSH’s limited edition Jungle Soap ($5.95, launched August 7th) will go to the Rainforest Foundation, which works with tribes to protect their forest homes from the destructive expansion of palm oil plantations in the region. At the same time, LUSH is excited to announce a new Charity Pot partnership with The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA). The WSPA works with the Borneo Orangutan Society (BOS) to protect endangered orangutans threatened by the deforestation practices of the palm oil industry. As LUSH’s featured Charity Pot partner for the duration of the palm campaign, WSPA will be receiving proceeds generated from the sales of the Charity Pot Hand and Body Lotion (receiving every penny of the $20.95 retail price, excluding taxes).
