BREAK THE BAG HABIT

Get creative, win great products, tell us the #bagadventure and #burythebagmonster!

Single use carrier bags are rubbish!  Last year in the UK over 9 billion bags were produced.  In the EU we produce more than 800,000 tonnes each year :(  Once made these bags take over 2000 years to break down. For more than 2 millennium they pollute our environment and kill wildlife.

In countries where a 5p charge for single use bags has been introduced the number of bags taken at checkouts can drop by 96%.  Please join the campaign to break the bag habit by using the hashtag #burythebagmonster and getting involved in the online debate.

Recently at Lush we have launched our new Fighting Animal Testing initiative - The Lush Prize.
The prize rewards breakthroughs in non-animal testing initiatives.  
Entries will be judged by a panel of independent science and animal welfare experts from within industry and Animal Welfare NGOs. 
But we also know that there is a huge body of opinion against animal testing amongst ordinary people  - and no one feels more strongly or wants changes more quickly than the general public.  So we have left room on the judging panel for one Lush Customer and one Lush Member of Staff.  
You would sit with the experts, read through the entries and have an equal vote with them to decide the winners.  The judging panel will be sent entries in advance to read, then spend a day together on Oct 15th to discuss and make the final decisions. This is a really exciting and important opportunity to make a difference to the plight of animals in testing - and we know the right people are out there amongst our staff and customers. 

Would you like to be the lay person on the panel who is there to represent animals and the public ?  Then please write to us and tell us a little about yourself and why you think you would be a great judge for the Lush Prize panel.
Please send your applications to judges@lush.co.uk by the 19th Sept.
Please only apply if you are in the UK, are available to read applications beforehand, and will be available on 15th Oct to attend the judgment day.  All expenses for the day will be covered by Lush.
Lush Prize is independently run and administered by Ethical Consumer Research Association.
