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 made by emily manger davis of sweet olive soaps, a third generation soapmaker from new orleans.
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.

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.”
