The United States is in the midst of a trying political and social time that is being felt throughout North America and the world. Intolerance, hostility, racism and fear have been pushed to the forefront and emotions are running high. Because of this divisiveness, it’s now more important than ever to stand up for inclusivity, compassion and respect for all people.
Lush has always been, and will always be, a safe space for everyone—regardless of immigration status, gender, race, age, sexual orientation, religion or political affiliation. We love and encourage individuality, and our employees and customers are as diverse as the products we create. That’s what makes the Lush community so special.
Since Lush’s humble beginnings more than 20 years ago, we’ve stood for inclusivity. We’ve used our storefronts, shops and websites to highlight humanitarian issues that impact our friends at home and abroad. From welcoming refugees to North America to campaigning for marriage equality, we believe in standing up for what’s right, and taking action even when it would be easier to stay quiet and stick to selling soap. We encourage you to do the same. A friendly smile, an understanding ear or any number of kind acts can go a long way in creating the type of community and world we can all be proud of.
Please join us in spreading positivity and compassion in these trying times. After all, our differences should be celebrated, not condemned. They are what makes our communities vibrant, our discussions passionate and our lives more fulfilling. All are welcome at Lush, always.
