In the beautiful city of Mysore, in the state of Karnataka, India, there is a building abuzz with the sounds of humming sewing machines, Indian pop music and laughter and chatter from over 60 women as they go about their day’s business. This is Re-Wrap: a non-profit cooperative helping marginalized women gain financial stability and create a better livelihood for themselves and their families. The organization was founded in 2002 by a woman named Janjri Trevedi, as a way to empower communities struggling towards economic gain. She is a most remarkable, thoughtful and gracious woman, with great ambition and vision. Re-Wrap was her brainchild a decade ago as a sustainable business opportunity with potential to impact communities in a positive way. The managing director of the Mysore factory is named Mr. CS Menon, who has over 25 years experience in the textiles industry. LUSH purchases canvas tote bags from Re-Wrap, as well as the organic cotton Knot-Wrap scarves we use as our alternative to paper gift wrap. In January of 2012, several LUSH employees had the opportunity to travel to Mysore to meet with Janjri and Menon, to see Re-Wrap in action and learn more about the organization and its potential for future business. Unbelievably, I was one of them—and now I have the honor of sharing a bit of Re-Wrap’s story here.
We arrived in Mysore after a 5-hour drive from Bangalore with just enough time for a quick fresh-up before dinner with Re-Wrap’s Founder, Janjri, and her husband, Jamon, as well as Menon and his family. They had graciously offered to take our group out to dinner, to welcome us to Mysore. It&rsq...
Melt away your tensions with the help of our friend The Melting Snowman. He's back for another holiday season but this year he has a new, spicy scent! We've used sinful amounts of natural cocoa and Shea butters to moisturize and soften your winter skin, and loads of warming cinnamon and clove bud essential oils to ward of chills. But, like any other snowman a rise in temperature can only mean one thing. He's melting...
Who has a beard that's white as snow? Who spreads cheer with "Ho Ho Ho?"
Well, we can think of one fellow - who also has a fondness for red suits and cookies. But why should Santa have all the fun, (or the cookies for that matter)? This holiday season our inventor's have taken our reusable bubble bar mixture and created a Bubble Beard moustache you twirl in your tub to create mounds of fluffy white bubbles. Then you can splash around and sculpt the most magnificent bubble beards imaginable.
Jamie and Allie from our Metrotown shop share their tips to make your bubble beard the envy of bathers everywhere!...
Kelly, from our Robson St location in Vancouver, BC is a guest blogger this week. She's just returned from the LUSH Prize awards ceremony in London, and shares her experience at the awards and in the fight against animal testing (all while suffering from jetlag). Thanks Kelly!
I have always been an animal lover, and when I found LUSH my love and compassion for animals grew. The passion that LUSH shows towards fighting against animal testing is truly inspiring and goes beyond anything I have seen before.
When we launched our Fighting Animal Testing campaign, I approached it as a chance to really make a difference. I talked to anyone who listened, got signatures for our petition from whoever would lend their signature, and got my whole store team so pumped up they were doing the same. We ended up having almost 1000 signatures, which landed us in the top 10 results in the company. In June, LUSH announced they would be awarding a 250,000 pound LUSH Prize to an organization or individual who could make a change to end animal testing in the cosmetic industry.
Hearing about the cruelty in animal testing made me want to do more. I was angry and wanted my voice to be heard. Tricia from Retail Marketing heard my voice! She set me up with one of our Charity Pot partners, The Ghosts in our Machine. Their Facebook page describes it as, "The Ghosts in our Machine is a cinematic feature length documentary that illuminates the lives of individual animals living within, or rescued from, the machine of our modern world." LUSH was g...
