lululemon athletica Voluntarily Withdraws Certain Reusable Bags

VANCOUVER, Dec. 21 /CNW/ - lululemon athletica inc [NASDAQ: LULU; TSX: LLL] today announced the voluntary withdrawal of certain of its reusable bags, or shoppers, from its stores. This is in the wake of the recent discussion among other retailers over the proper disposal of reusable bags due to lead content. These shoppers are distributed free of charge to our guests with their purchases. lululemon invites all of its guests who have received one of the shoppers at issue to return them for a replacement shopper. In addition, any guests who simply wish to dispose of their shopper may return the shopper to any of our stores for appropriate disposal.

"All available research indicates these bags comply with all applicable health and safety regulations and are safe for our guests' use," said Christine Day, CEO of lululemon. "The shoppers at issue were obtained from our newest supplier, and have only been distributed in our stores for approximately the last year. We choose our partners carefully and the manufacturer of the shoppers is known for its green practices, and is cooperating fully with our review. While we conduct that review, we believe that from a long-term environmental perspective it is better to stop distributing these bags. Our guests will be provided with shoppers from other manufacturers that do not raise potential environmental concerns."

lululemon takes pride in its unwavering commitment to the health and well being of our guests, our local communities, and the environment. We strive to have a positive impact in all we do. For a list of all affected shoppers and more information, please visit
