Lush hand-made cosmetics have teamed up with Marriage Equality and Dublin Pride, and during the Pride festival (June 21-30) Lush shops will act as information centres for the Marriage Equality campaign. Lush will also donate some of their profits to both Marriage Equality and Dublin Pride.
At these shops you may sign a petition asking the Taoiseach to bring forward a referendum on Marriage Equality as soon as possible, or learn of the 160 or so differences between marriage and civil partnership. Many of these differences affect same-sex couples, and their children, in a way that makes them vulnerable from a legal standpoint.
Now proceeds from the sale of two of Lush’s products will help fund the Marriage Equality campaign and the Dublin Pride Festival.
Director of Marriage Equality Monnine Griffith said:
We’re calling on our supporters to contact their TD and call for a quick and early resolution of the problems facing same-sex families by urgently implementing the recommendation of the Constitutional Convention for a Referendum on same-sex marriage.
Chairperson of Dublin Pride Chris Proctor said:
We are extremely grateful to be in partnership with Lush and Marriage Equality this year on the 30th anniversary of Dublin Pride. A lot of LGBT organisations depend of the hard work and generosity of their volunteers, including Marriage Equality and Dublin Pride and we are delighted to be in partnership with a great organisation and to be associated with such a big brand like Lush Cosmetics.
You can support this campaign by calling in to Lush and signing a petition, and while you’re there, why not buy a bar of soap or bottle of hand lotion, to help fund these worthy causes.
