支持年輕人對全球氣候議題的呼喚:LUSH關閉加拿大和北美商店響應罷工

全球暖化議題近年受到廣泛關注,加上消費者的環保意識提升,以多包裝和化學污染著稱的美容行業受到不少譴責。瑞士年輕學生格蕾塔·桑伯格(Greta Thunberg)近期發起罷工活動,不少美容牌子也紛紛響應,一直是業內最具氣候意識的美容品牌之一的 LUSH 便是其中一個。

LUSH 一直以氣候轉變和可持續發展為首要考慮因數,不但在自己的再生農場種植原料,其半數以上的產品都是無包裝的。除了自己公司,LUSH 還為基層環境保育組織籌集了數百萬美元。  而現在 Lush 宣布關閉 250 家北美(9月20日)和加拿大(9 月27日)的商店響應罷工兩天,此舉正是一個前所未有的方式向環保關注組織提供支持。

我們共享這個星球,所以我們需要聯合起來發出警報,向我們的政治家們展示「一切照舊」不再是一種選擇。氣候危機不會等待,我們也不會。

Lush Cosmetics 北美首席執行官兼總裁 Mark Wolverton

這個罷工活動「 Global Climate Strike」 源自於青年組織:今年瑞士 16歲少女格蕾塔·桑伯格 (Greta Thunberg) 為了提升全球環保意識而退學,甚至為喚起大家對人類活動所造成的污染和碳排放問題的關注,在今年八月去紐約參加聯合國論壇時,決定選擇不乘耗油量大的飛機,採用零碳旅行方式,和攝影師、父親以及兩名船員乘坐「馬里茲亞II號」(Malizia II)賽艇,而這艘船由太陽能電池板和水力渦輪機產生電力。

個人和集體採取行動將改變我們的世界,拯救生命,確保所有人過上有尊嚴的生活。

阿米娜·穆罕默德 (Greta Thunberg)

聯合國氣候行動峰會將在本月23日舉行,因此,青少年全球氣候運動家 Greta Thunberg 要求大家於9月20-27日罷工罷課,以這個方法希望讓更多人正視氣候變化問題,並結束化石燃料的使用。很多人看到這位年輕女生不畏餘力地強調全球氣候的嚴峻性和化石燃料的危害,以及人們活動對氣候的影響,已經開始自愧不如。加上亞馬遜森林的大火事件,更是敲了警鐘,我們確實要更佳努力保護地球,不然就太遲了。
