BirdProject

Maker - Tippy Tippens

BirdProject
Made in the USA
Underrepresented Entrepreneur

Maker Story

A Bird in the (Helping) Hand

Tippy Tippens is a design maven with a bent for social entrepreneurship. In fact, when the BP oil spill disaster happened in 2010, Tippens was living in far-away New York City, but felt pulled to do something to help. Her many visits to New Orleans culminated in eventually relocating there and starting her business, Matter Inc., which is dedicated to "making the world a better place by making meaningful products that matter."

That's how BirdProject Soap was born. These black, bird-shaped soaps are made from natural, local ingredients (including biodiesel glycerin and activated charcoal, which lends them their eye-catching color). The soap itself is gentle and lightly scented, and the bird fits perfectly in your hand, wash after wash. Such a wonderful symbol of the creatures affected in the Gulf should be a lasting one, so as you use your soap, it melts away to reveal a ceramic bird keepsake that’s handmade by Tippy from Louisiana Clay.

The best part is that 10% of the profits go towards the Gulf Restoration Network and International Bird Rescue. It's beautiful design, and help where it's needed, for the beautiful creatures that inspired it.
