The Lush cosmetics corporation is engaging in what is commonly known as “greenwash” — the cynical exploitation of environmental causes to curry favor with the Green Left. Engaging in greenwash can even be a kind of protection racket, in which corporations that participate are exempt from boycott campaigns or even violent attacks by environmental activists.
One environmental campaign supported by Lush targets the Canadian oil sands industry. Now an advocate for “ethical oil” has turned the tables on the company, using protesters in burkas in front of one of its Canadian retail outlets to protest Lush’s profitable operations in Saudi Arabia.
