Cosmetics for Clean Energy
Lush, the cosmetics company that creates products from only organic, vegetarian ingredients, is taking its dedication to the environment one step further with a new campaign against the Canadian tar sands.
Alongside the Rainforest Action Network, Lush is working to raise awareness about the controversial environmental, social, and political effects of tar-sand mining. Unlike conventional oil sources, tar sands are a mixture of bitumen, clay, sand, and water that must be dug up and refined into oil, a process that requires huge amounts of energy and water.
Lush's campaign encourages America's and Canada's governments to consider clean, renewable energy alternatives such as wind and solar.
