Lush Knot Wrap Eco-Friendly Wrapping

Lush Wants You to Wrap It Up

If you're a big Lush fan, you might have even more reason to shop there. To celebrate Earth Day and Mother's Day, the handmade cosmetics chain is replacing its gift wrap with knot wraps ($6.50) made of pretty vintage fabric or recyclable materials. All the wrappers at Lush have learned to wrap in the style of Japanese furoshiki, and you can reuse the knot wrap over and over again — as a scarf, bag, etc. Two Mother's Day scarves are in the limited-edition lineup, but two other knot-wrap options will be available permanently. It makes for a pretty presentation and a nice way to use less paper as well.

Sorry if my comment came across as a little hostile - that wasn't my intention :( I do work for lush (I'm a sales associate) so I believe it is a common misconception and a lot of bloggers have continued to reinforce this idea that lush is hiding things from customers. Almost all of our new customers that walk into the store ask the same two questions: "So, this is all soap?" and "You guys are all natural, right?" and we are trained to provide the honest answer stated on the website - we are as close to natural as we can get, but we still use safe synthetic preservatives while always researching for a better ingredient to replace them :) I may just be "drinking the cool aid", but I trust my product knowledge - and the fact that lush has a comprehensive ingredient list available to everyone. (Do you use Jungle then? Awesome.) sorry for the novel/soapbox, just would like to clear the air if I can! :) :)

okchristina, i wasn't bashing. i love lush products, but i don't necessarily like the way they are marketed. and maybe it's not them marketing, maybe it's bloggers, etc. who call them chemical free. i almost always travel with one of their solid conditioners!

From the lush website: "We believe in making effective products from fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, the finest essential oils and SAFE SYNTHETICS. We invent our own products and fragrances. We make them fresh by hand using LITTLE OR NO PRESERVATIVE OR PACKAGING, using only vegetarian ingredients, and tell you when they were made. We believe in buying ingredients only from companies that do not commission tests on animals and in testing our products on humans." LUSH has never claimed to be chemical-free. All the ingredients are listed where you can easily see and read them. The company is working to find substitutes for the two parabens used in light of the new research (that is still unconfirmed, really). They changed their palm oil soap base in response to the diminishing palm industry. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but do your research before you bash, okay?

what a great idea! (although i do agree with leeluv..they like to market themselves as a chem-free company, but they're not)

While I like the idea, I do not like the company. They talk the talk but do not walk the walk, as quite a few and/or most of the products still have chemicals (hello parabens and propylene glycol.)
