BirdProject Soap - Gives back to oil spill cleanup

Through the daily act of washing, you will eventually free the clean, white, ceramic birds inside - potent symbols of restoration and recovery. The soap is shaped to be cradled in your hand and is a powerful representation of all creatures affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Disaster. The soaps are made with natural, locally sourced ingredients: biodiesel glycerin, fair trade olive oil, aloe, activated black charcoal, and a light cypress scent - reminiscent of Louisianan bayous. They are made by Emily Manger Davis of Sweet Olive Soap Works, a third generation soapmaker from New Orleans. 10% of profits go to environmental cleanup and care for affected animals of the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Disaster, $28,210 donated to date This is the launch product of the company that I founded, Goods that Matter, proud to be the first Benefit Corporation in the state of Louisiana. These symbolic bird-shaped soaps were my way to give back, as a product designer, post BP Oil Spill in 2010. I raised the funds on Kickstarter, at the time, a new way to raise funds for your projects: Through the daily act of washing, you will eventually free the clean, white, ceramic birds inside - potent symbols of restoration and recovery.
