Soap Not Soup
By Marissa Hicken |
Sharks get a bad rap. Don't get me wrong, I'm terrified of the creatures, but their existence is essential for maintaining healthy marine ecosystems. And shark populations have declined more than 90 percent in the past few decades, largely due to the demand for shark products like shark fin soup.
Soap-maker Lush has teamed up with non-profit Shark Savers to help protect the world's sharks from extinction. In an effort to put their best “fin” forward, Lush has just released a limited-edition, ocean-inspired Shark Fin Soap. Made with sea salt and seaweed, this woody-smelling soap will leave your skin feeling smooth and refreshed. It's the same high quality handmade soap you expect from Lush except all proceeds go to protecting the sharks. Oh, and also there's also a cardboard fin sticking out of the top. Cue the “Jaws” theme.
