Products designed to nudge us

14 Jul

There is a growing palette of products designed with a double brief – besides fulfilling their usual product  requisites, they should also nudge us towards more sustainable behaviour. The personal hygiene products category seems to be a popular one for these designs, no doubt because of their frequent, if not daily use. Here’s an example of hand-crafted soap, inspired by melting glaciers and icebergs.

About the glacier soaps Lee is quoted as saying, “I wanted to create something that was unattainable to many. To transport a piece of iceberg straight from the Arctic to your hands. When you hold it, it looks and feels like a precious jewel. Something you want to guard and protect.”
