LUSH Leading the No Waste Charge in Naked Shops - Should Other Products Strive for the Same?
Now open in Asia markets are what are now dubed as "Naked" shops. This is how Lush is leading the pack with becoming ethically eco-friendly in providing consumers options in how their products are purchased. These package-free alternatives to products that are used on the daily from shampoo, cosmetics, to skincare is quite intriguing.
The passion that this company is broadcasting in dealing with the lack of space for waste literally gives us all the feels. So far Lush's "Naked" shops are open in Milan, Berlin, Manchester, and now Hong Kong.
We will be staying on top of this movement and see how it fares as while this is intriguing, it leaves us with so many questions, such as shelf-life of the products, issues with potential contamination of the products, are the just the few that come to mind. While we desperately love this idea and feel that we are on the cusp of a plastic-waste revolution, we want to dig into the logistics of how these shops actually take these potential issues into mind and their implemented strategies to ward off such issues.
