Lush x Vienne Westwood x War On Want

Who's into fashion, politics and cosmetics?

Lush Cosmetics has teamed up with Vivienne Westwood and War On Want to create a showder (shower powder!) to support groups fighting against TTIP! War On Want are a membership organisation of people who are committed to social justice.

A dirty deal is being negotiated in secret between the EU and the USA. This is TTIP, it stands for  Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. It is one of the most vibrant movements seen to date and we need to do something about it! Over 2.5 million people have signed the petition against TTIP. The talks began in 2013, so it has been going on for 2 years now, and the next few months are crucial as the EU and USA government are trying to rush through this deal! TTIP will cost the economy at least 1 million jobs and it will only benefit businesses; making them profits and not in the best interests of the main population!

Lush have come up with a product whereby all profits made from it, minus the VAT, will go to grassroot groups across Europe who are fighting back against TTIP. The box has been designed by Vivenne Westwood and Climate Revolution. The showder is made of rose and bergamot essential oils and is vegan. It is priced at £12.50 and are in all Lush shops worldwide now!

Go get it and say NO to TTIP!
