Subject: Re: LUSH Cosmetics - PLO Soap Dipped in Blood

Dear David,

Thank you for your email. I'm sorry to hear you're disappointed with Lush's support for the OneWorld project.

Lush UK have added their voice to the OneWorld project to help raise awareness about human rights abuse and poverty facing Palestinians. The campaign is based on the implementation of United Nations resolutions and international humanitarian and human rights law to protect civilians.

The history between Israel and Palestine is long, complicated and often under dispute. However, what is very clear is the level of suffering occurring today, in part due to the military blockade of the Gaza strip and the Wall being built in the West Bank which cuts Palestinian people off from vital infrastructure, including health services, and has led to restrictions on movement, a lack of drinking water plus increased poverty and human rights abuse in the area. History does not excuse such suffering. It will take both sides to come to a solution, but what is also clear is that this is not a conflict of two equal sides and thus the onus must be on the dominating force, Israel. The OneWorld project has been launched in solidarity with the Palestinian people and, like Lush, strives for human rights and equality for all regardless of race or religion, is non-partisan and does not support violence. OneWorld is supported by both Palestinian and Israeli organisations and aims to help create a just peace for all people living in the region.

We support organisations fighting for human rights all around the world on a variety of issues, from the freedom of West Papua and Tibet to labour rights of workers in India, women's rights in Africa and environmental rights of indigenous people in Latin America. Whilst there are many other issues we have not supported, there are sadly limitations as to how much we can do.

Throughout the course of the year we support many humanitarian, animal and environmental causes, many of which are nominated by our own customers. We welcome and value all feedback, so thank you for getting in touch with us. I will be sure to pass your comments on to our Campaigns team for future consideration.

Kind regards,

Vicky Jansson
Customer Care Manager
Lush Ltd.
