Lush

This is from my local Lush store, and this woman who works there is absolutely fab. Every time I come in, she's so nice and pleasant and really I could just go in there for a chat and the opportunity to smell good when I leave, but I feel bad not buying things. Anyway, Lush makes the products by hand, almost all natural ingredients.. There's barely any wrapping or plastic, and the products that do come in plastic tins are made from recycled material. And in that sense I feel that they are quite the analogue avant-garde.

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
