Hand-Crafted Soaps Inspired by Melting Glaciers & Icebergs

Global warming doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, sadly, so it’s always nice to see someone trying to bring attention to such an overwhelming cause. Designer William Lee created a set of hand-crafted soaps, for Young Stellar Object, that look very much like the things they were inspired by – icebergs and glaciers in the Arctic.


The faceted soaps resemble the massive bodies that are slowing melting away and with each use, the soaps will begin to dissolve away too. The idea is to bring more awareness in showing that once the soap is melted away, much like an iceberg, that there is no going back.


A Glacier Adrift comes as a set of three soaps in small, medium, and large, with a percentage of the proceeds being donated to 1% for the Planet,, or The Climate Reality, all charities endorsed by Al Gore.
