Since their inception, Lush has taken the world by storm with their mesmerising bath bombs, vibrant soaps, and weird, wacky and wonderful bathroom goods; becoming a certified household name around Australia.
You may have noticed over the past few months that Lush Rundle Mall has been on snooze behind construction walls – how mysterious. As of Thursday 8 September (that’s tomorrow), Lush will re-open their Myer Centre locale revealing their first ever Australian eco concept store and they have a bunch of festivities planned across the weekend.
As part of Lush’s mission to ‘Leave the world Lusher than they found it’, the Rundle Mall concept store has been designed with repurposed furniture alongside ethically sourced and durable materials; including a variety of recycled countertops using post-consumer waste from yoghurt pots and plastic packaging, as well as more energy efficient LED lighting.
Lush are also encouraging you and everyone in between to bring back any full sized Lush plastic packaging to the Rundle Mall or your local Lush shop to be recycled as part of their fresh new packaging returns scheme. For each Lush plastic item returned, customers will receive a $1 deposit to spend on their Lush basket that day.
Lush Retail Operations Manager Amy Irvin says, “At Lush, we put sustainability and the ethical sourcing of materials at the forefront of not only the ingredients that go into our fresh handmade cosmetics, but also the design and construction of our beautiful and innovative stores.”
As for the Rundle Mall comeback celebrations, Lush is inviting you to embrace the mischief with a range of in-store activations. The first ten customers in line tomorrow morn’ will receive a gift with purchase at Lush’s trick or treat bar. And from 12pm until 3pm, there will be a ghoulish bath bomb pop-up station where you can make your own Lord of Misrule-inspired bath bombs from Lush’s limited edition Halloween range.
But if you can’t make it to the launch on Thursday 8, never fear – on Saturday 10 the above festivities will continue with bonus Lord of Misrule inspired snow cones for your to monch as you roam the store between 12pm and 3pm. And on Sunday 11 you can still get your hands dirty at the bath bomb making station between 12pm and 3pm.
The beloved cosmetics conglomerate Lush operates in 48 countries with over 900 shops. Their fresh, handmade bits and bobs make for fun, yet essential gifts and really take your bathing that one step further into spice-town.
