POOLE, UK, June 8, 2018 (Press Release) -It's a sad fact that plastic debris in our oceans is killing marine wildlife at a staggering rate. On Friday 8th June, World Oceans Day, Lush will be launching their newest campaign online (in shops from 18th June) to raise awareness of the effect of single-use plastic on ocean life and start a discussion with customers on how we can tackle this worldwide issue as consumers.

At Lush, we have always tried to use creative solutions to make a positive impact on the planet, like the invention of the first-ever solid shampoo bar, which saves nearly 6 million plastic bottles yearly, and, more recently, offering customers a solid alternative to liquid shower gel. Currently over 40% of Lush's AYR product range is completely 'naked' (packaging free).

According to the Lush, naked knows no bounds and this month they have gone a step further...

On Friday 1st June, Lush opened their first Naked shop in the world in Milan, Italy. A new experiment for the brand, the shop is a celebration of innovation and creativity through products totally free of packaging and, through in-store events, workshops and film screenings, aims to be a place for customers to share and exchange ideas for a future without plastic.

Also launching alongside the campaign is Lush’s newest Jelly Bomb, safe in the knowledge that no sea turtles will be harmed.

Turtle Jelly Bomb is filled with cypress and sandalwood oils to keep you grounded and pine absolute to refresh. When dropped in water, skin softening agar agar seaweed strands emerge, floating to the top as a reminder of the threat sea turtles face.

Turtle Jelly Bomb and the larger, Turtle Immersion Jelly Bomb are available online at lush.com from Friday 8th June. Turtle Jelly Bomb will be available in Lush shops globally from the 18th June.
