Lush is famed for its ability to create beauty products that are not only high quality, but also ethical, eco-friendly and largely vegan. Whether you rely on the Lush Sleepy Body Lotion to get you to sleep every night, or you're in love with the Lush vegan foundation 'egg', the chances are there is at least one item in the most gloriously scented shop that has you hooked.
And their commitment to saving the planet goes much further than a whimsical promise sign at the checkout. The Lush palm oil-free soap was recently unveiled as part of a campaign to save and protect endangered Orangutans in Indonesia, something they've been working towards for the past couple of years.
But now Lush is going that one step further to help reduce plastic waste by creating lipstick refills - and as well as looking like a pretty epic range of shades, they're an easy way to do your bit for mother nature.
The forty new lipsticks come as 'naked refills', meaning that they're dipped in a peelable wax to keep them fresh and clean, and can easily be popped into one of your old lipstick holders. Talk about chic beauty upcycling.
There is also a version that is packaged in PP plastic, which is recyclable through Lush's closed loop recycling Black Pot Scheme.
Each refill costs £8.50, and the lipsticks in recycled packaging cost £13.50. They're available online, and in the London Oxford Street and Birmingham stores.
What an innovative idea! As the world becomes more conscious of how they consume non-recyclable materials, this is a huge step in the right direction.
