Buffy Body Butter Bar
Did you know that Lush now has over 100 products that don't have packaging? This means that over 100 types of lovely smelling Lush goodies don't add to landfill, because once you use them, they're gone!
We're talking soaps, bath bombs, bath melts, body butters, massage bars, solid facial cleansers, serum, solid shampoo bars, solid hand cream, bubble bars, and, phew, almost there, foot cream. I think we often underestimate how much one person can contribute to landfill, so this campaign raises some wonderful awareness. Even the packaging peanuts can be broken down and melted by water, leaving minimal traces behind,

Another bonus of this is that because the products are so strongly scented, you can stick them into your drawers to keep your clothes smelling fresh!

I also really like the poster that came out as part of the campaign. They used their own staff and got them to let it out, quite literally! A bit of a positive body image thing, and a cheeky way to get the message across about creating a positive impact on the environment.

Another good point to remember is that they use recycled products for their packaging, when they need to, and they can in turn, also be recycled. Absolutely genius!
Just imagine - these four products are only a fraction of what you can find in store sans packaging. Also, some of these would certainly be great travel companions when you have a very limited amount of liquids you could pack into your carry on luggage.
So the next time you're thinking of indulging in something for your bath, hair or body, consider popping into Lush to have your senses overloaded, but not your bin.
And of course, as always, Lush is cruelty free with a portion of vegan appropriate products.
What do you think of this campaign? How do you help reduce your carbon footprint?
