LUSH Cosmetics

PDP's first discloser, producing a comprehensive report released to PDP on a confidential basis.  Lush also prepared a summary of their report for those who might like to learn from their experience. One important issue on Lush’s agenda has been its use of microplastic glitter in ten products. Starting with the Christmas line in 2012, Lush decided to replace these with alternatives including rice paper confetti, coloured mica, agar-based sparkles and popping candy, without losing any of the product functionality. This is a forward thinking decision considering the associated costs, both economic and to natural capital. The Plastic Disclosure Project was instrumental in Lush’s move away from plastic beads and glitter, as it was through conducting its Plastic Disclosure Project disclosure that Lush recognised the magnitude of the issue and opportunity.
