Lush To Close Stores For Two Days In Climate-Strike Solidarity

by | September 13, 2019

Lush Cosmetics has made plans to close a number of its stores in solidarity with Greta Thunberg’s fight for our environment.

The retail giant is set to shut down a total of 250 North American shops as part of the symbolic gesture, on September 20 and 27, in the US and Canada respectively.

Lush CEO Mark Wolverton is encouraging employees to join in the strikes, and a post on the brand’s Instagram account ask its 4.5 million followers to do the same.

“We all share this planet, so we need to band together to sound the alarm and show our politicians that ‘business as usual’ is no longer an option,” Wolvertson stated.

“The climate crisis won’t wait, and neither will we,”

Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old environmental activist making headlines for ongoing fight for our environment, has been organizing climate strikes to raise awareness of ongoing environmental devastation for over a year. The strikes started among school-aged children, and have been shared on social media alongside a hashtag reading “#FridaysForFuture.”

Lush Environmentalism

Lush is a brand geared toward environmental consciousness and the humane treatment of animals.

Many of the products in the store are vegan — although Lush still does use honey and lanolin in some of its products — and all are given a cruelty-free certification. 

A large percentage of Lush’s products also come free of packaging and, in the case of products that do have packaging, it’s often recyclable. The website extensively lists the ways in which Lush is trying to lower its environmental impact.
