We're Logging Off Until Social Media is Safe for All

As of November 26th, 2021, we're saying goodbye to Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok until these platforms can provide a safer environment for their users. The serious effects of social media on mental health are being ignored by these platforms. It’s time to stop scrolling and be somewhere else.

 

Like so many people have experienced before us, Lush has tried to come off social media, but our FOMO is vast, and our compulsion to use the various platforms means we find ourselves back on there, despite our best intentions.

 

We wouldn’t ask our customers to meet us down a dark and dangerous alleyway – but some social media platforms are beginning to feel like places no one should be encouraged to go. Something has to change. We hope that platforms will introduce strong best practice guidelines, and we hope that international regulation will be passed into law. But we can’t wait. We feel forced to take our own action to shield our customers from the harm and manipulation they may experience whilst trying to connect with us on social media. 

 

Lush promises to find new ways to connect, to build better channels of communication elsewhere, as well as use the older tried and tested routes. For now, we can still be found on Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and YouTube – no need to click Like, Subscribe or Get Notifications, people can just pop along to check us out when they fancy. 

 

We’ve always got a lot to say, but when we climb onto a soapbox, we like it to be safe.

“I’ve spent all my life avoiding putting harmful ingredients in my products. There is now overwhelming evidence we are being put at risk when using social media. I’m not willing to expose my customers to this harm, so it’s time to take it out of the mix”.

“As an inventor of bath bombs, I pour all my efforts into creating products that help people switch off, relax and pay attention to their wellbeing. Social media platforms have become the antithesis of this aim, with algorithms designed to keep people scrolling and stop them from switching off and relaxing”.
