Lush Would Rather Sell Naked Products Than Use Non-Environment-Friendly Packaging, Buying Manager Says

Beauty brand Lush is selling solid products, such as shampoo bars, soap, and Bath Bombs, that do not need as much packaging as conventional personal care products. When a product needs packaging for protection, Lush uses packaging made from recycled materials. One of its recycling programs, Black Pot, has helped collect more than 300,000 black pots, which were later recycled into new black pots. Lush's ethical buying manager Heather Deeth said creating packaging-free products is a main part of the company's business philosophy, with the company's emphasis on focusing on product quality instead of packaging. Lush uses 100-percent recycled content material for plastic, paper, or cardboard packaging, Deeth said.

Johnson & Johnson Battles Allegations It Failed To Act On Reported Talcum-Cancer Links

Johnson & Johnson is fighting legal claims and public perception that the company put more emphasis on revenue than on ethics following a court case awarding damages to a woman diagnosed with cancer after years of using its talcum powder. J&J asserts that there is no sufficient medical evidence linking ovarian cancer risk to talcum powder use. Despite scientific facts being cited by the company, however, its brand is likely to suffer significant damage. While it seems that the company ignored information or warnings from some scientific studies highlighting possible links between its product and ovarian cancer, there are no definitive argument for this, according to Wharton lecturer in health care management Robert Field.
