How Moisturizing Your Skin Can Help Save Animals

Lush is a British cosmetics company that makes natural vegan products like glitter infused bath bombs and sweet smelling shampoo. The company is firmly against animal testing, so they've rightly been beloved by animal rights activists for the last twenty years.

If a company that only tests their products on human volunteers isn't enough to make you fall in love with Lush, take a look at their Charity Pot:

The Charity Pot is a body lotion that's made with deliciously soothing things like cocoa butter and aloe. 100% of the proceeds (minus tax) go directly to one of the grass roots organizations that Lush supports.

Here are just a FEW of the animal charities that have been helped by Lush:

1. Kurmalliance

Kurmalliance is a non-profit organization that works on preserving and protecting the marine ecosystems that sea turtles call home. They are vigilant about eliminating plastic pollution are frequently do a plastic clean up of the Santa Monica bay. Funds from the Lush Charity Pot helped them to launch Operation: Bio-Boat, a biodiesel work boat that transports volunteers down the California coast to help pick up plastic.

2. Pacific Wild Alliance

W.O.L.F. conducts environmental outreach in public schools to teach children about how humans interact and effect animals. They also have "Comfort in Wilderness" camps where children tell stories and write songs about animals and nature. Proceeds from the Charity Pot helped the organization to lobby the Minnesota government for laws to protect the Gray wolf.

Operation Blankets of Love gives comfort items, like blankets and toys, to animal shelters and rescue groups. Lush donates money to their Humane Education Learning Program, which runs in-school programs about responsible pet ownership.

Who knew so much good could come from one little pot of moisturizer? The Charity Pot sells for $6.95 - $25.95. Hopefully more companies will follow Lush's stellar example and start spreading love to animals around the world!
