BirdProject Soap, Lovebirds Edition
Love the Coast. This new ceramic birdie wears a red heart at its tail which is created by two fingerprints in red glaze that are handprinted to form a heart.

Each black, bird shaped soap contains a white, ceramic bird, handmade 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 handmade by Emily Manger Davis of Sweet Olive Soaps, a third generation soapmaker from New Orleans.
50% of profits go to environmental cleanup and care for affected animals of the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Disaster. (Gulf Restoration Network & International Bird Rescue) $22,500 donated to date and counting!
A beautiful sculpture for your home, a fantastic soap, and a meaningful gift which gives to many.
+ If in New Orleans, happy to arrange pickup & refund shipping!
+ More details about the soaps! They are all natural [they contain no shea butter or animal products - I've received many thank you's for that for those that are allergic] and are really wonderful for your skin. The lovely soap is great for all skin types and is not drying for daily use. The heavenly Rigaud Cypress scent has a rich history which began in Paris in 1850 and is delightful for both women and men.
+ I have received so many letters that this pretty handsoap beats out other soaps in the house for removing tough stains or dirt on your hands. Even stubborn paint, tree sap, mechanics grease, & crawfish boil residue!
+ To prolong the life of handmade soap please keep in a soap dish and allow to dry between uses. Store in a cool and dry place until ready for use.
“Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn't then it is of no use to us.” - Carlos Castaneda
Testimonial from International Bird Rescue:
“The idea for BirdProject is so simple yet resonant, that of darkness washing away to something flawless and beautiful. We see this first hand all the time at International Bird Rescue. Birds that come to us covered in oil and thick tar get a second chance when they’re thoroughly washed and nursed back to health. We are so grateful for our partnership with BirdProject. This is a company that walks the walk, and knows exactly what we mean when we say, “Every Bird Matters.”
