In an attempt to help find a solution, Lush will launch a new online campaign on June 8 - World Oceans Nonude lolly photos. The campaign aims to 'raise awareness of the effect of nude plastic on ocean life and start a discussion with customers on how we can tackle this worldwide issue as consumers'.
The spokesperson added: Currently over 40 percent of Lush's AYR product range is completely 'naked' packaging free.
The brand is launching a new product alongside the campaign. According to Lush: Lushes dropped in water, nude softening lushes agar seaweed strands emerge, floating to the top as a reminder of the threat sea turtles face.
This takes a lot of our personal time, money and hard work. But we do it because we KNOW it makes a difference.
