The Lush Podcast | Wildlife

August 19, 2019

The Lush Podcast is a magazine-style show hosted by Nuala Davies and Olivia Graham.
This series will draw you into the far reaching world of Lush by bringing together exciting goings on from various areas of the business, current events and existing Lush media.


This August, a brand new podcast series has been launched at Lush, which focuses on the ‘War on Wildlife’ and is hosted by Charlie Moores and Ruth Peacey. To help raise the awareness, we’ve dedicated this episode of The Lush Podcast to the topic of Wildlife and why we should care.

Within the episode, we’ll hear a small teaser clip from the brand new War on Wildlife Podcast,  in which Bruce Parry reflects on whether he believes there is a war at play, and if so, what he would do to tackle it.

We will also take a listen to some small clips from panel discussions hosted at the most recent Lush Showcase which each shine a light on the War on Wildlife but from a more solutions-focused angle. 

 

And finally, we’ll hear from an inspirational young activist called Mya-Rose Craig whose work in the Birding world is doing tremendous things for getting younger generations involved in wildlife work.

Welcome to Episode 5, where ‘Leadership’ is the focus! Lush is a true leader in the cosmetics industry, and today we’ll be diving into the “how” and the “why” of our innovative approach to leadership as a company.

In July 2019, Lush held a Retail Leadership Festival for its staff in “the best city in the werrrld”, Liverpool. Lush staff from across the globe joined forces for the week, and Nuala and Olivia went along to get the goss!
Within this episode, we’ll hear teasers from a few of the talks at the Festival, including a conversation between Lush Liverpool’s Manager Sandra Byrne and Mark Constantine. We’ll listen to Karl Bygrave telling us how our staff are becoming future leaders for us with the Lush EBT, as well as hearing from two members of Lush Retail who have become our staff Trustees within the EBT. Finally, we’ll listen in as some other Lush staff at the event talked to Nuala and Olivia about their thoughts on what a leader should be, as well as influential leaders in their lives.

This series will draw you into the far reaching world of Lush by bringing together exciting goings on from various areas of the business, current events and existing Lush media.


Episode 4 is here, and today, Olivia and Nuala are discussing the theme of ‘Naked’... and before you get carried away, when we say ‘naked’, we basically mean products that are packaging-free!
As July is plastic-free month, we thought we’d use this episode to give a shout out to all of the innovative things things we do at Lush that put us a step ahead in the game, such as our naked product ranges and our regenerative packaging ideas such as our biodegradable cork pots and beyond!


This episode features several small soundbites from our media archives. First up is Giles Verdon from the Lush Earthcare team discussing the future of packaging and reasons to go naked. We will hear an Inventor’s Panel about our naked products, and an ingredients-focused piece taking a look at how we source our Argan oil which goes into some of our lovely naked makeup, putting quality at the forefront.
Finally we’ll hear from Nick Gumery from the Lush Buying Team to get some insight on our exciting cork project which is at the forefront of our regenerative thinking.
