LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Sponsors WEIF

Through WEIF's partnership with LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics and its Charity Pot Program, WEIF has received support for a three-year expansion of its successful Village Improvement Program. Beginning in 2013, women in Ghadne and Dongripada—villages surrounding the 2011 CIDA project, Nareshwadi Learning Centre—were supported through agricultural livelihood training. In June 2015, LUSH supported additional women in the neighboring villages of Navapada, Khadikipada and Shisane.

WEIF is now pleased to announce that the Village Improvement Program has expanded into Bihar, India’s second poorest state, where women in the villages of Padampur and Sattarkattaiya will receive support from LUSH beginning in July 2015.

As a cosmetics company, LUSH strives to ensure that their products follow the highest ethical standards of environmental sustainability and Fair Trade, and they are currently spearheading a global campaign to end animal testing in the cosmetics industry. Known for their delectable soaps, bath bombs and array of body care items, LUSH's Charity Pot is a body lotion made with Fair Trade organic cocoa butter, moisturizing almond oil and fragrant ylang ylang, which will make your skin feel as "soft as your heart." 100% of the sales of Charity Pot (excluding tax) go to small, grassroots organizations such as WEIF to help them continue their good work.

You can purchase LUSH's Charity Pot in Edmonton at the West Edmonton Mall, Kingsway Mall or Whyte Avenue locations, and keep a look out for WEIF's label on the Charity Pot, coming soon. For more information about LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, go to their website at
