Not only is FUN so much Fun....each time you buy some FUN 10p of each sale will go to the....FunD...

The Fun - 10p from each sale of FUN goes to help children affected by the Fukushima disaster.

We had so much fun inventing and using our new patented soft bath product; modelling it into shapes, animals, voodoo dolls of the boss, etc, then seeing how many uses we could find for it, as a bubble bath, washing our hair, our clothes, our muddy bikes, etc.,etc,etc.   So when it came to thinking of a name for this new invention, we decided that it had to simply be called Fun.

We try to make sure we have a great deal of fun working here at Lush and it is something that visitors often comment on.   When you are having fun and making a product called Fun, it seems only right to try to spread the fun to places where there might not be quite so much of it.

With this in mind, we have decided that for the first year of sales of Fun, 10p  from the sale of each bar will go into a FunD, to be given out in grants to projects providing fun and recreational activities for children living in challenging environments.

Through our contacts in Japan and the previous work we did with NGOs in the areas affected by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster,
we are aware that the situation for children in the affected areas is still very far from having returned to the normal fun of childhood. The children of the Fukushima area in particular are severely affected – where very real concerns over radiation levels mean that playing outside is too dangerous.  Despite decontamination efforts, many school playgrounds remain off limits and outdoor play in streets and parks is not possible - meaning that children are playing alone in their houses on computers more and more whilst exercise, free running and mixing with peer groups is severely reduced.

We would like to target the FunD at this group; identifying charities, community groups and parent initiatives providing fun filled, group activities for children in the affected areas.

We will work with NGOs and groups in the area to seek out suitable projects to fund.  We favour small, grassroots community projects, initiated by locals, who are best placed to know the needs of their children and are able to organise locally.  We aim to provide money to enable them to lay on regular events where children can come together and have fun and enjoyment with their own age and peer groups.
