During our last financial year in the UK, we donated over £1.6 million to small charities, campaigns and organisations working in the areas of environment, animal protection and human rights. Globally, we donated £6.3 million.
One of the exciting things about Lush is the fact that we can lend our support to grassroots groups around the world that need help to make a difference.
We created Charity Pot hand and body lotion in April 2007 in order to raise money for charities and other good causes. Every penny you pay, except the VAT, goes to helping these carefully selected groups and the work they do.
In our last financial year, our generous customers in the UK and Ireland raised £833,265 for vital and important grassroots campaigns and charities by buying Charity Pot. Thank you.
Globally, Charity Pot is now sold in 35 different countries and in our last financial year, sales raised over £4.8 million – all of it given away to frontline campaigns for animals, human rights and the environment.

£20,000 Annual Awards
Lush Ltd give away £200,000 each year to 10 special groups we partner with, or think are making a vital contribution to social change. Find out who we funded in 2012, 2013 and 2014 here.
For every bar of Fun soap we sell, 10p will go into the FunD. This money is granted to projects providing fun and recreational activities for children living in challenging environments. Read about some of the groups we've funded here.
Other charity support
Although Charity Pot is the main source of charitable funds we also raise money through limited edition charity products and our self-imposed carbon tax (we tax ourselves on our flights and give this money to environmental groups).
Every year, we also give away £250,000 via the Lush Prize – the biggest prize in the non-animal testing sector.
We also donate money through our SLush Fund to small farmers and producers. In our last financial year the SLush Fund donated over £900,000.
