VIDEO: It's time to go back to school, but for some students it can be a stressful time of year due to the harsh words and actions of others. In light of this, LUSH Cosmetics is asking the public to come down to either the St. John's Town Center or The Avenues stores in Jacksonville through Sepemteber 13 to literally "erase bullying" by engaging with an interactive window art installation and sign an online pledge to treat others with dignity and respect by way of campaign partner Charter for Compassion.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Going back to school for many students can be a stressful time of year due to bullying. The harsh words and actions of others affect millions of students each year. In light of this, LUSH Cosmetics is working to “erase bullying” with an interactive art installation displayed in the windows of select shops.

"LUSH is encouraging the public to sign an online pledge to treat others with dignity and respect by way of campaign partner Charter for Compassion," said Michelle Griffith who works with LUSH.

As part of the campaign, LUSH has launched a limited edition Charity Pot hand and body lotion with 100 percent of the sales going to LUSH’s Charity Pot Fund, to help further the good work of grassroots organizations like Charter For Compassion.

"We offer so many different types hand and body lotions made with fair-trade cocoa butter and fragranced with ylang ylang, geranium and tagettes essential oils—and feel especially good knowing that each dollop does a world of good," said Griffith.

The Charter for Compassion inspires people around the world to live by the Golden Rule. It’s a cooperative effort to restore not only compassionate thinking, but more importantly, to restore compassionate action to the center of religious, moral and political life.
