We are on the verge of a major victory for marriage equality in New York. With that, and continuing the thread from my last post, I want to tell you about another skincare company that is helping fight the good fight: LUSH. I take a deep inhalation every time I walk past the open doors of a LUSH store to get a much-appreciated whiff of sweet mango or zingy lemongrass (which is very different than the usual aroma of New York City in the summertime, believe you me).

I've always been a fan of their Bath Bombs (that probably has an entirely different meaning to those of you with kids & babies), but they also have soaps, shower gels & smoothies, haircare, skincare, lip balms, deodorants, perfumes, and more. LUSH believes in making effective products from the finest, fresh organic fruits and vegetables (they are 100% vegetarian) and the finest essential oils and safe synthetics. They only buy ingredients from companies that do not commission tests on animals. They make their products fresh by hand using little or no preservatives. And, appropriately for bath products, many of them come naked (no packaging).

All of that is pretty cool, but here is what makes them really awesome: the people at LUSH believe in marriage equality, and are actually partners with another organization previously featured on this blog, Freedom to Marry. Their website, in addition to being full of yummy-smelling goodness, is also chock full o' ways you can take action in the fight for the freedom of all people to marry the one they love.

LUSH believes in equal rights for all families and couples and you can join them and stand up against marriage discrimination by adding your name to their petition. This weekend, June 18, bring your significant other and/or family to your local LUSH shop to kiss marriage inequality goodbye, or send a photo of you kissing a loved one along with your hopes for marriage equality across America. You can also help the cause by buying a Freedom Foamer - a limited edition bubble bar with the uplifting and refreshing scents of lemon, lime and grapefruit oils and from which all proceeds will be donated to Freedom to Marry to support their "Why Marriage Matters" campaign.
