Hi there! I’m your Bubble Buddy. Use me to grate organic soap bars instead of buying all kinds of liquid soap in plastic bottles. Now don’t get me wrong, plastic is a really cool modern material – used in the right way and in the right place. Like me, for instance: recycled plastic! But humans are throwing away so much plastic which ends up in our sewage, our rivers, and seas. And that’s not cool at all. Together, you and I can cut down on plastic bottles in your home. Isn’t that a ‘grate’ start?
With the Bottle Vase Project (2009) I tried to raise attention to the growing problem of plastic pollution, years later awareness has spread, yet the plastic soup keeps growing… so time for action!
Bubble Buddy is a recycled plastic soap dish with grate. It comes in eight different colours. Packed in a gift box designed by rachel sender together with an organic soap bar, he makes a fun gift for yourself or anyone else that aims to use less plastic. Use the recycled plastic colourful soap dish to replace your plastic soap dispensers. Or use this recipe to make a whole lot of liquid soap with the grate and organic soap bar.
Includes one bar of organic cleaning soap. Use the Bubble Buddy grate to make some flakes that easily dissolve into soapy water for pretty much all your household chores; dishes, laundry, kitchen, bathroom, floors & windows. This soap even works with really dirty pots but is kind enough for lathering your hands.
Bubble Buddy was designed by foekje fleur for goodtogive and part of the proceeds go to sea shepherd. To truly thrive, marine wildlife needs safe sanctuaries to feed, mate and raise their young without pollution, destructive fishing gear, plastics, and other marine debris that choke and destroy their habitats. Sea Shepherd opposes the pollution of this fragile ecosystem and also endorses projects that prevent more plastic from entering our waters, like Bubble Buddy.
The packaging is printed on eco-friendly cardboard with eco-friendly ink.
If you don’t want to treat yourself… It’s the perfect gift for your aunty, that hipster friend, a baby shower, granny, mother in law, and everybody else that likes to make the world a cleaner place.
Size: 10,8 x 8 x 5,5 cm / Recommend size of the soap bar is approximate: 9 x 5,5 cm
Somewhere in the 1980s or 90s, many of us switched from using bar soap to liquid soap – we were told it was more hygienic. However, we were misled! Studies (John E. Heinze and Frank Yackovich, Epidemiology and Infection Vol. 101, No. 1 (Aug. 1988), pp. 135-142) show that washing with bar soap isn’t any less hygienic, so, don’t believe the hype. Now we can once again choose from a wide range of soap bars, from a moisturizing body wash to shampoo, to shaving soap and home cleaning detergent. You can find many sorts of soap bars in most supermarkets. Hand-crafted organic bar soap is your best option: it’s good for you and your environment, highly concentrated, economical in use, plastic packaging free, and hasn’t been tested on animals.
