We previously discovered TOMS Shoes, an organization founded by Blake Mycoskie to help provide shoes to needy children.

Cleanup Soap

Our next feel-good product discovery is Cleanup – bars of soap designed to resemble landmines.

Money raised through sales of the soap goes towards landmine removal efforts, as well as the Cambodia Landmine Museum Relief Fund.

This unique concept was developed by Hideaki Matsui as part of his senior thesis for the Parsons School of Design in New York City.

He’d been exposed to the horrors of landmines through photographs his parents shared during his youth, and thus, the idea of Cleanup was born.

The landmine design of the bars are a metaphor for the landmine removal process….”as the soap disappears, so do the landmines.”

The soap comes in two scents – Rosemary Mint and Coconut, and are made with natural ingredients.

So grab a couple bars of Cleanup and actively participate in raising awareness about landmines.

Price: $8.00 per bar (includes $2.00 Donation) | BUY
