It’s a lush life for Recycling Lives staff

Imagine walking into work one day to find out there are free facials on offer. Many people probably dream of this – but on Friday, it will become reality for Recycling Lives staff!

On 8th March, the Recycling Lives Centre will host a temporary beauty salon and cosmetics counter in the reception area and cafe, with team members from Lush in Preston offering free face masks and selling sweet smelling soaps and scrubs to staff.

With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday 10th March, this provides the ideal opportunity for a spot of last-minute shopping for Mum. Gifts and limited edition products from Lush’s spring range will be available to staff and other centre users, who will be able to pop along between 11.30 a.m. and 2.30 p.m. for a browse and a bit of pampering. In addition to facials, people can have a go at making fresh face masks from scratch – or enjoy a soothing hand and arm massage if they prefer.

The stall, which Recycling Lives was only too happy to have on site after Millie from Lush got in touch, provides a great opportunity for the social business to treat the staff to something a bit different, as well as to offer something to the local community and a local business. As an organisation committed to Corporate Social Responsibility, Recycling Lives cares about staff welfare and this is one way to help our hardworking team to relax and unwind.

There is even an opportunity for early birds to stay a step ahead, too. People who already use Lush products and know what they want can email their orders to Millie and the team and they will happily bring in the requested items. All customers need to do is mention Recycling Lives in the subject line of their email when they place their order.

Steve Jackson OBE, Recycling Lives’ Chief Executive, said:

“I am pleased to give Lush a platform to sell some of their products and offer our staff a treat in the process. Lush make some excellent cosmetics from fresh ingredients. This is definitely something we approve of at Recycling Lives, and it will be a good opportunity for people to learn a bit about what goes into the products they use on themselves.

“It will also help our staff to relax and unwind a bit. They all work very hard, so they need a bit of a break sometimes.  This will certainly rejuvenate them!”
