LUSH Cosmetics Just Says No To Canadian Seal Hunt
As many of you know, the annual seal hunt kicked off today (March 23rd) and will once again reign terror over the icy shores of Canada.
More than 205,000 individual seals were killed last year during the hunt, and just today more than 150 have been killed.
To help stop this bloodbath, LUSH cosmetics is urging people to sign their online petition to help ban the slaughter. They’re also taking it a step further by donating 100% of the proceeds from the sales of their First Swim Limited Edition Bubble Bar to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society— a non-profit that seeks to end the slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans.

“The slaughter of hundreds of thousands of baby seals is due to begin today, around the Îles de la Madeleine in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada. Despite the Canadian government trying to keep a low profile on it, the date has finally been set and, sadly, today is the day when the ice floes will turn red with the blood of 280,000 baby seals – which is 5,000 more than last year’s quota.”
