Lush's new cork container
Lush uses a new reusable container for its solid shampoo. The cork box is a 100% natural, reusable and biodegradable container.
A recent study carried out by Lush on the carbon footprint of its cork boxes showed that they are the brand's first positive carbon packaging product. The Carbon Trust awarded Lush cork boxes with a zero carbon footprint certification. This certification verifies that each 35g cork box stores more than 33 times its weight in carbon dioxide, removing about 1.2 kg of CO2 from the atmosphere.
In addition, to further reduce the carbon footprint, a traditional sailboat has been used to transport the cork cans from Portugal to Dorset, United Kingdom.
