Save Our Seals & LUSH Cosmetics

"To the dismay of animal lovers around the world, the annual Canadian seal slaughter is set to resume later this week. Therefore, with the goal of bringing the world's attention to this atrocity, Sea Shepherd is proud to announce a new partnership with LUSH Cosmetics to oppose the commercial hunt, which kills over 250,000 baby harp seals each spring." ~ Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Friday Harbor, WA

What an adorable way to take action:

From Lush's Website:


100% of the proceeds from sales of this limited edition bubble bar will be donated to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. This limited edition bubble bar has the same refreshing fragrance as our Sea Vegetable soap, plus it has a reusable seal face sticker on the top of the bubble bar. It smells of lime, lavender with just a hint of seaweed to remind you of the ocean and is rolled in coconut shavings to resemble the fur of a seal pup. The name “first swim” comes from the baby seals that are killed so young they are haven't even had their first meal or first swim yet. We thought it would be lovely to give this baby seal its first swim.

Aren't they so cute?! Lush has other items that benefit non-profits, but I just loved Sea Shepherd's Save the Seals!!
