No, but really. Instead of cramming its boxes with bubble wrap or paper, the brand uses starch-based packing peanuts than you can chow down, should you so choose. (Lush tells us they used to employ popcorn — in case you wanted to make your bubble bath feel like a movie theater — but this new material takes 23% less energy to make and is 100% biodegradable in both water and soil.) To make 'em, the company whisks vegetable starch with water and heat, and out pops a pillowy nugget that looks eerily similar to a Cheese Puff. Mmm, mmm, mmm.
So instead, you can also put the plant-based packaging to good use by reusing it or adding it to your compost pile. You can also dissolve them under running water or plop them into your tub after bath time. The more stuff you can put in there the better, are we right?
