On 1st January 2013, British brands - Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics and Vivienne Westwood are teaming up to launch the Climate Revolution.
In 104 Lush shops across the UK and Ireland, customers will be invited to protect the environment by signing up to the revolution. Climate Revolution is an uprising designed by Vivienne Westwood. Participants will be invited to petition, act and protest for a more sustainable future. Mo Constantine OBE, Co-founder of LUSH Cosmetics says, "This is the week when every shop in every shopping centre across the world is screaming sales. We have chosen to propel Vivienne Westwood's initiative - Climate Revolution - into the High Street instead. It might seem strange that the Climate Revolution is being called for by members of the beauty and fashion industry, but Vivienne is right when she says that we must begin today, because tomorrow is too late. Both Lush and Westwood have always had invention at heart, and a certain disregard for the rules. We're proud to make Climate Revolution our New Year's resolution."

Dame Vivienne Westwood says, "I was impressed by Lush – it's run like a family business with the earth and its people as the priority. They have over 800 shops across the world without having spent any money on advertising! I like the attention they give to the amount of packaging they use and the communities from which they source their products. I'm excited that 2013 begins with Climate Revolution, from 104 windows on the UK's busiest shopping streets. And it gives me hope that the High Street can help pioneer a more sustainable world."

Climate Revolution will be hosted in Lush shops until Monday 7th January 2013.
