Two iconic British brands – Vivienne Westwood and Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics – will support the Climate Revolution during the first two weeks of January 2013. In 104 Lush shops across the UK, customers will be invited to protect the environment by signing up to the revolution.
Climate Revolution is an uprising designed by Vivienne Westwood. Participants will be invited to petition, act and protest for a more sustainable future.
Mo Constantine OBE, Co-founder of LUSH Cosmetics says,
“These are the weeks when every shop in every shopping centre across the world is screaming sales. We have chosen to propel Vivienne Westwood’s initiative – Climate Revolution – into the High Street instead. It might seem strange that the Climate Revolution is being called for by members of the beauty and fashion industry, but Vivienne is right when she says that we must begin today, because tomorrow is too late.
Both Lush and Westwood have always had invention at heart, and a certain disregard for the rules. We’re proud to make Climate Revolution our New Year’s resolution.”
Dame Vivienne Westwood says,
“I was impressed by Lush – it’s run like a family business with the earth and its people as the priority. They have over 800 shops across the world without having spent any money on advertising! I like the attention they give to the amount of packaging they use and the communities from which they source their products.
I’m excited that 2013 begins with Climate Revolution, from 104 windows on the UK’s busiest shopping streets. And it gives me hope that the High Street can help pioneer a more sustainable world.”
Hilary Jones, Ethics Director at LUSH Cosmetics, says,
“All of us – individuals, businesses, institutions and governments – need to find ways to minimise our impact so that when we are gone, the planet remains for the next generation.
Never before has a generation held sway over the very future existence of our planet and we need to face up to that and take responsibility.”
CLIMATE REVOLUTION will be hosted in Lush shops until Monday 14th January 2013
