Designs for Social Change: The BirdProject

  Wash your hands, clean up the gulf - with a little help from Bird Project


Eco-intelligence, creativity, and innovative philanthropy unite!!


Tippy Tippens passion for sustainable growth is quite unique. She makes the objects that we live with us, work for us instead of against us and ultimately give us a greater sense of happiness.

 


Each black, bird shaped soap contains a white, ceramic bird, handmade by moi from Louisiana Clay, which remains as a keepsake once the outer soap has washed away.

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 Soaps, a third generation soapmaker from New Orleans.
