More than half of the Horse & Hound website users who took part in last week’s H&H online vote (52%) said they would be boycotting Lush over its decision to raise money for the Hunt Saboteurs Association (news, 15 October).
And another 36% said they never bought from Lush anyway.
Nearly 2,000 people participated in the online vote and only 9% of those said they would definitely still buy at Lush. The other 3% had no particular view (see page 8).
High street cosmetics store Lush launched a new product on 19 October, the Fabulous Mrs Fox bubble bar (pictured), which will be on sale until Boxing Day with all profits going to the anti-hunt group.
Lush is also distributing anti-hunt leaflets in store.
