RAWR! Let’s Bury the Bag Monster!
We love Lush and that’s a fact. I fell in love with them 6 years ago when I had my first tattoo – Lush’s Dream Cream was what I used to moisturise the area daily. It’s not just me who loves Lush, Scamp and Ozzy love popping in to choose from their amazing bath bomb creations. We use choosing some bath bombs for a ‘very special bath time’ as a fantastic alternative to sweets or magazines – scamp loves choosing the girliest pink and sparkly ones!
We’ve been getting creative to support Lush and the Break the Bag Habit campaign. Scamp and Ozzy helped make this..
But you know how it is, you can’t tell kids about a Bag Monster without showing them one first… so I knocked this up with the few plastic bags that were stuffed in the back of a kitchen drawer..
Bury the Bag Monster is a drawing challenge where you can win Lush products and condemn plastic bags to the art history books -just take a photo and use #burythebagmonster on Instagram or Twitter to share.

Here’s some important factoids for you to mull over:
• Use of plastic bags in the UK has gone up this year to over 8 billion single use carrier bags produced
• These plastic bags will litter our environment for over 2,000 years – polluting our seas, our cities, our countryside and killing our wildlife
It’s not inevitable! In countries where a ban or 5p charge has been introduced plastic bag use has typically dropped over 95%.
At Lush they support the Break the Bag Habit campaign and ask the Government to implement a 5p charge following the model introduced in Wales. With this model retailers would be required by law to charge 5p for bags with all profits from the charge going to local environmental charities! Everyone’s a winner!!

*Please note: Obviously you can see by the high standard of artistic talent on my placcy bag monster that I made it – not the kids. Goes without saying – don’t go giving plastic bags to kids to play with…*
