Lush Launches New Vegan Soap And Gives 100% Of Sales To Migrant Charities
Fresh handmade cosmetics company Lush has launched a new vegan soap to raise money for migrant justice.
The lemongrass and fire tree oil scented soap — which is called “Mi Casa Es Tu Casa” — is shaped like a house and on sale across the US for $6.95.
Lush hopes to raise $350,000 through the sale of the soap, and will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to charities that fight for migrant rights.

Lush Supports Migrant Rights
The cosmetic company has made its stance on migrant rights clear by adding “ICE Free Zone” stickers to all 208 US stores. The company also refuses to allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to enter its premises.
“What we’re seeing happen to migrants on a daily basis is unconscionable,” said Carleen Pickard, Ethical Campaigns Specialist at Lush North America.
“The increasing harassment from ICE, children ripped from their parents, narrowing criteria for asylum, and the dangerous narrative being spun about a threat to our country.”
“It’s time we showed up for our communities and demanded safe passage for all those who express freedom of movement—no exceptions.”
