Sponsor Profile: LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics

When we think of LUSH Cosmetics, we think of organic ingredients, handmade bubble bars, and candlelit baths, and with LUSH’s commitment to look after the world we live in, we couldn’t be happier to welcome them back as a sponsor for the 2012 Projecting Change Film Festival.

We’re sure you’ve all had a LUSH Bath Bomb fizzling in your tub, but have you ever taken a peek at their We Believe statements or their Green Policy? You’ll appreciate that sweet scent wafting from your skin that much more once you learn exactly which sustainable practices LUSH participates in. From sticking to vegetarian ingredients to minimizing packaging to never testing their products or ingredients on animals; LUSH is the kind of company we wish all others would emulate more often.

Their next campaign, Oil Spills Affect Everyone, addresses the expansion of the Alberta Tar Sands and will be speaking out against the Enbridge Pipeline in Canada and Keystone XL in the United States. Our screening of Pipe Dreams on Saturday, April 21st complements this campaign as it illustrates the battle farmers and landowners engage in to save their property from destruction. We encourage you visit your nearest LUSH shop between May 28th and June 10th to sign the Dogwood Initiative petition against the Enbridge pipeline. Alternatively, the petition will also be available online at www.lush.ca.

Psst… word on the street is LUSH will putting a little something in our opening night gift bags on April 17th – another reason not to miss it.
