You’ve already shopped till you dropped on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday and yesterday you gave your fingers a workout for Cyber Monday, but did you know there’s yet ANOTHER day to look forward to in regards to holiday shopping?
That’s right, Market Watch and GreenDeals.org have declared today, Tuesday, November 27th to be Green Tuesday! Experts are hoping this new instant holiday will grow into an annual shopping spree devoted to “eco-forward” holiday gifts. Why not take the day to pick up some thoughtful, eco-minded choices for friends, family and maybe even a few things for yourself?
LUSH Cosmetics may focus on the environment and ethical causes every day, but they believe there’s no harm in creating a new, special day to help out causes close to your heart. LUSH has several products that give back to charity as well as others that help to promote our eco-friendly mantra.
Here’s what you should scoop up from LUSH today on Green Tuesday, and then you have our blessing to take the rest of the week off (from shopping, that is!) Also, just a reminder that 38% of LUSH products are naked (unpackaged!) so they make great eco-friendly gifts all year long.
Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion: $22.95
Buying a Charity Pot helps grassroots charities all over the world. Made with Fair Trade and organic cocoa butter that moisturizes your whole body and a hint of ylang ylang and geranium to make it smell like the loveliest floral chocolate in the world. 100% of the proceeds from each pot (minus the taxes) go to the Charity Pot fund to support worthy causes in animal welfare, humanitarian concerns and environmental conservation. (Vegan).
Peace Massage Bar: $13.95
Inspired by the London riots, this massage bar is designed to bring peace to your world. LUSH hopes this is the perfect recipe to heal troubled situations, because peace starts within every single one of us. Peace was also the first product to be made with cocoa beans sourced from a small village in Colombia where inhabits refuse to participate in the turmoil around them and strive for peace. Buying Fair Trade cocoa beans from them is LUSH’s way of supporting their efforts. Simply rub (it will melt when warm) and wish for peace.
For an unconventional and eco-friendly alternative to traditional wrapping paper, bundle your holiday gifts in the LUSH Fairyshiki knot wrap. This magenta-colored cutie is the perfect fanciful adornment when you want to package up a unique array of LUSH products for a custom gift. This charming gal is sure to win over whoever receives her.
