With over 900 stores in countries across the globe, LUSH Cosmetics has expanded rapidly in recent years and has lots of plans to continue with that growth. When a company is that successful, it is easy for them to focus on revenue and forget their roots. Not so with LUSH. The company does extensive charitable work and, on Friday 5th August, LUSH will be helping to support Passion For Motherland (PFM) at their flagship store in Oxford Street, London.
From 6:30pm to 7.30pm, PFM founder Lisette Mibo will be sharing her story with visitors to the central London store. While explaining the tragedy of up to 25,000 children living on the streets of Kinshasa, Lisette will also present a positive plan to change that situation – and to bring hope to a generation of vulnerable youngsters.
LUSH’s founders started supplying ethical products into The Body Shop back in the 1970s. LUSH itself opened its first store in 1995 in Poole, Dorset, and has since built a chain of more than 900 stores in 51 countries around the world.
In 2007 Lush created the Charity Pot, a hand and body lotion, especially to raise money for charity and good causes. On Friday 5th August the Oxford Street store, will donate 100% of the purchase price, (except the VAT) to Passion for Motherland for each charity pot sold.
The money raised will be used to build a shelter to help homeless children, living on the streets of Kinshasa.

Lush works hard to put their ethical buying policy into practice, their suppliers must demonstrate that they support worker’s rights, the environment, intelligent transport and commit to 100% vegetarian products with no animal testing. Their Shea Butter comes from Ghana and their Orange Flowers and Neroli Oil come from Tunisia.
