Oil Slicks, Birds and Soap

Proctor and Gamble have signed a three-year deal with Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research to teach people how to wash birds after an oil spill. It is estimated that up to half a million birds die in oil spills every year, but with proper knowledge on how to clean the birds, thousands could be saved.

It turns out that when they clean up after the oil slicks that volunteers have found Dawn detergent is the best to clean the dirty birds. They have been using Dawn for over 20 years now, including during the Exxon-Valdez spill.

A portion of the proceeds of every bottle of Dawn sold will go towards Saving a Duck
