MATTER INC is an industrial design and consulting studio that is all about “Design for Social Change”. One of their products is this birdsoap designed by Tippy Tippens. Its profits benefit the cleanup efforts related to BP’s oil spill disaster.
“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. ..”
