Environmental issues are at the heart of Lush and trickle through to the decisions we make on a daily basis. For example, we use almond and olive oil - not mineral oil - partly because we think fields of trees make our lives much richer than oil fields. We keep on top of legislation and welcome new regulations that genuinely reduce our impact.
We like to support environmental groups that take part in creative direct action to help change the law. We are committed to becoming more sustainable the more we grow, by using our buying power to drive positive change. We believe taking care of the environment is everyone's responsibility including all of our staff and our customers.

Pets at Home
Pets at Home
Sponsored: Insulation & power
For a number of years Pets at Home have supported a number of charities and with the support of our customers, stores and suppliers - and a lot of hard work - we raised in excess of £1.3million for pet related charities such as Hearing Dogs, Dogs for the Disabled and The Blue Cross. In addition we have built relationships with Dog's Trust, Cat's Protection and the Rabbit Welfare Association, all of which share our passion for animal welfare.
We're really proud of Support Adoption For Pets which provides much needed support to national animal welfare charities plus numerous locally-based rescue and re-homing centres which dedicate themselves to finding loving homes for pets within the community.
Waitrose Community Matters
Sponsored: Food & Medications
Since its launch in 2008, Waitrose's, Community Matters initiative has donated over £3 million to a wide range of charities and community groups. This unique scheme gives each branch £1,000 (or £500 in our convenience shops) to share out between three local good causes each month - such as welfare organisations, community groups, schools or local divisions of national charities.
Customers vote for their preferred cause using a green token each time they shop and the money each cause is given is directly proportional to the tokens they receive. Under the scheme, customers nominate organisations, with the final decision made by PartnerVoice forums (Waitrose's local democratic bodies). Each branch has a Community Matters Champion, who finds out about potential beneficiaries.
We would like to take this opportunity to reassure all our customers, suppliers and the general public that our products and product ranges continue to meet the very high requirements previously set by the BUAV.
As a result, and because we feel so strongly regarding this matter, we have developed our own 'Not Tested on Animals Guarantee'. This continues on from the strict criteria that we met when the BUAV 'Not Tested on Animals Standard' was in practice.
Our guarantee, together with our company policy, affirms we have not and never will fund any invasive research projects conducted in relation to the development or refinement of pet foods manufactured or sold by our company. Nor would we be party to any act that could be deemed harmful or injurious to animals.
