Japan Aid Soap £5

Buy one of Lush’s LIMITED EDITION Japan Aid soaps (£5.00) and all proceeds go to the relief effort in Japan

We were heartbroken to see the pictures of devastation from Japan and we know that we’re not the only ones.  For Lush it is very personal, as we have 145 shops in Japan and a factory – with 1,600 staff.  Some of these staff and their families have lost everything.

You can help by buying some of our limited edition 
Japan Aid soap (£5.00) and, just like our Charity Pot scheme, all the proceeds except the VAT will go directly towards the relief effort in Japan.

We are working with a charity called 
Peace Boat ( <, who is organising teams of volunteers, transporting aid goods and cooking hot meals in the disaster zone.  Despite their efforts, it is hard to keep up with the queues of people needing food and help.  All the money raised in the UK from the sales of this limited editionJapan Aid soap (£5.00) will go directly to Peace Boat, to help them help more people.  Your support can make such a difference.
Shaped like the Japanese flag, this limited edition soap will soften your skin and leave it scented with the popular tropical coconut fragrance of I Should Coco.

We have made enough to raise £50,000 in the UK and $80,000 in North America (money will go to another aid agency). Some of the money will also go to animal rescue organisations.

NOTE:Once the initial relief aid of food etc is no longer needed – we hope that some of the funds from the Japan Aid soap can start to be put towards the longer term rebuilding of the affected communities. Things like environmental projects, allotments for growing food, community gardens, community centres, animal rescue centres etc, will all be looking for funding to get back up and running.  These things are vital to quality of life, but are often the last things to gain funding – so Lush will be doing all it can to identify these kind of needs over the longer term.

Japan Aid soap is available in all Lush shops nationwide and online.  For shop details and mail order, please call 01202 668 545, or order on-line at <>
