Transcript of Lush Ethical Buying

By Chantel Latimer We want to know where our ingredients come from and how they’re made. It’s the responsibility of our Creative Buying team to get out there to show us how this happens. Our buyers travel worldwide, visiting our suppliers to trace the ingredients, to meet the growers and producers, and ensure care for the environment and fair conditions for workers. They have been to Ghana, Morocco, Papua New Guinea, Vancouver, Costa Rica and the Colorado Rockies in search of the very best ethical and sustainable ingredients for our customers. We believe that what we buy should have a positive impact on the community from which they are harvested ETHICAL BUYING AT LUSH What is Ethical Buying? Ethical buying/ consumerism can be defined as the practice of purchasing products and services produced in a way that minimizes social and/or environmental damage, while avoiding products and services deemed to have a negative impact on society or the environment. What are some
examples of
ingredients we ethically
source/ buy? Ethical sourcing means ensuring that the products being sourced are created in safe facilities by workers who are treated well and paid fair wages to work legal hours. It also implies that the supplier is respecting the environment during the production and manufacture of the products. What is ethical sourcing? Ethical Buying and Sourcing Bulgaria Bulgarian Rose Oil Most of our rose oil comes from the Valley of the Roses in Bulgaria
The local villagers and Roma Gypsies handpick over 400 tonnes of rose flowers to use as absolute in our products.
We use 60 red roses a day in our products
Every gram of rose oil we use contains the essence of 1,000 Damascus roses We use over 260 million roses each year, dried or fresh, absolute or oil.
We buy 15 percent of Turkey’s crop of rose absolute each year
Buying our rose from Turkey helped to build a local school in the area we buy from. The school is one of the first for under-7s in Turkey.
There are 350 Turkish roses in each pot of Turkish Delight
There are 85 roses worth of oil in each Tisty Tosty Turkey Rose Oil Turkey Ethical Buying Trip (rose) Rose Oil and Rose Absolute Organic fair trade cocoa butter comes all the way from the sunny islands of Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic
In the Dominican Republic, cocoa butter production represents 90% of the local communities income, making it a vital product. to ensure the farmers were securing a fair wage, they formed a co-operative in 1998, which encompasses around 25% of the Dominican farmers!
This co-operative provides approx. 10 000 tonnes of cocoa to the market place, of which 95% is organic, 50% is fair trade and 150 of the farmers have even become bio dynamic. Fair Trade Cocoa Butter Fair Trade Cocoa Butter Buying Story Dominican
Republic Costa Rica India Vanuatu We have over 30 different products with sandalwood and use over a ton a year!
The tree is primarily grown in India, which is where we used to source our oil from until we became aware of the illegal trade, forcing us to cut all ties with the supplier.
We now source our oil from a sustainable supplier in Vanuatu, where our buyers Agnes visited in 2009 to learn more about how they're taking steps to improve the trade of sandalwood all over the world Sandalwood Sandalwood Buying Story We believe at Lush, that what we buy should have a positive impact on the community from which they are harvested. Buying from small-scale producer groups affords us the opportunity to drive positive change and form incredible relationships with people all over the world
