February 2013 – LUSH Cosmetics, El Retiro, Guatemala

LUSH Guatemala 2013-03-VOLO Athletics Fair Trade Sports Balls

In February LUSH Cosmetics staff travelled to El Retiro, Guatemala to work with the non-profit group Hug It Forward. Charity Pot—LUSH’s main charitable giving program, has partnered with Hug It Forward to support their direct action in communities like El Retiro, building “Bottle Schools”. Their work focuses on solving problems directly—in this case, a lack of educational opportunities. Because the community members are drawn together in the effort of building the school, and the material used is otherwise inorganic litter on the hillsides, the solutions that Bottle Schools provide are multifold.
VOLO Athletics was invited to support the trip by way of their fair trade soccer balls, which LUSH distributed upon completion of the school. SC was happy to be involved and thanks LUSH for the opportunity.
