Curious to know exactly what goes into that perfect present you just bought/ received?
From the box and the ribbon, to the peanuts, tags and even the products themselves, we’re committed to making your gifts as eco-friendly, recycled and recyclable as possible. So, if you're looking to gift ethically, you can trust that we have thought of everything to make sure your present doesn't impact the planet.
Plant-based compostable packing peanuts
Open almost any Lush gift and you’ll be greeted by your lovely products nestled in a sea of what looks like typical packing peanuts. But unlike wasteful polystyrene, our peanuts are made from something natural. Our peanuts are made from a starch-based material that’s eco-conscious. First, it takes less energy to produce and it can be made with just a bit of starch and water. All of which makes these pillowy nuggets 100 percent biodegradable and perfect for home composting.
Recycled tags and inserts
We know that giving your loved ones, or yourself, a box filled with naked bath bombs, bubble bars and solid shower gels will make anyone’s day—but first they need to know how to use them. So, we include lists of products and their uses in our gifts. That way, even friends and family who are less familiar with Lush can share in the joy without, say, accidentally dropping a bubble bar into a full tub without running it under the water first.
What we’re less excited about is a load of waste going straight in the trash. That’s why all our gift tags and inserts are made from 100 percent recycled paper. And when your recipient has gotten the hang of things, they can toss their paper instructions right in the recycling bin.
Reusable boxes, bags and bows
We want all our gift packaging to feel like gifts themselves, which is why many of our gifts are packed in beautiful hatboxes, cute collectible tins or reusable Knot-wraps. These multipurpose containers let your recipients enjoy their gifts long after the last bubble has popped. For example our Little Green Bag is beautifully wrapped in a knot-wrap that you can reuse as a fab fashion accessory. And what would a gift box be without a bow? Our thoughts exactly, which is why our satin and grosgrain ribbons, woven in North America, are made from recycled PET.
