Earlier this month, LUSH UK announced that the brand would bid farewell to some of its social channels and instead open up the conversation with its consumers elsewhere. In an Instagram post, the brand said that “increasingly, social media is making it harder and harder for us to talk to each other directly. We are tired of fighting with algorithms, and we do not want to pay to appear in your newsfeed. So we’ve decided it’s time to bid farewell to some of our social channels and open up the conversation between you and us instead.” The post ended by saying that the LUSH UK team will be available via phone, email or live chat on the website.
