The bird soaps are a power-combo of mystery, sensuality and intimacy, reaching into daily routines – the morning shower, the washing of hands – with purpose and symbolism. Each soap is made from sustainable ingredients (including glycerin, a biodiesel byproduct – smart!), and has a clean, white ceramic bird inside, which is revealed and ‘cleansed’ as the outer black soap is used. The soaps are made in Louisiana, so a hint of cypress is added to capture the scent of the bayous. Proceeds from sales go towards the Gulf Restoration Network and International Bird Rescue. It’s truly an object lesson in social entrepreneurship. This is creativity making the world a better place.
