Help LUSH lend a helping hand to Japan!

The catastrophic earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan hit very close to home for LUSH Cosmetics.  With 1600 staff members, 145 shops, and a manufacturing facility located in Japan, LUSH had to step in and support local organizations and to aid in the relief effort, they are selling limited edition products with 100% of the proceeds going to various Japanese charities.

LUSH The Rising Sun Soap - $5.95 - resembles the Japanese flag and softens the skin with a sweet cherry fragrance.  All proceeds from the soap will go directly to Peace Boat - a Japan-based non-profit organization. Since the earthquake, Peace Boat has been organizing volunteers, transporting aid and providing hot meals to those affected by the disaster
LUSH Charity Pot - $5.00 - in 3 limited editions containing rich body lotion made with Fair Trade organic cocoa butter with a hint of ylang ylang and geranium. 100% of the sale of each Charity Pot will be donated to three Japanese humanitarian and animal welfare organizations:

Rescue Stock Yard – a Japanese domestic disaster non-profit that has started emergency relief and preparation for long-term support for thousands of survivors.
NGO Collaboration Centre for HANSHIN QUAKE Rehabilitation members of this center have been in the Miyagi Prefecture providing support for the victims.
Animal Peace – a grassroots animal welfare group that has been providing medical care, food and blankets for displaced animals.
