A second life to the ashes of forest fires
When summer arrives, or with climate change it is no longer just summer, times without rain, which are becoming more frequent, or this hot month of February. The fires They stalk our forests like a bird of prey, who would have thought that in the middle of winter in Cantabria 45 fires would devastate its forests?
Normally we see them on the news, we are outraged if they are provoked and if they have been caused by accidents we are left with an inner rage, but whatever the case, we cannot do anything, we have not been able to help in its prevention, we cannot help in their extinction nor can we do anything to recover them. An inner discomfort that we can now alleviate.
A Spanish project, born from the ashes of our forests, in Spain during 2018 we suffered more than 7,000 forest fires, has known how to take advantage of vegetable ashes to transform them and create ecological soap, it also allocates 10% of its turnover to environmental research to restore spaces damaged by fire. The project is called “Ashes to life”, which means “Ashes for life”.
For the production of organic soap, a traditional method is used with the highest quality raw materials, pure essential oils and vegetable ashes. Thanks to the ashes from fires, they give the soap properties that promote exfoliation, purification and help control skin moisture. their soaps are for sale, as well as soap dishes made with ash and resins.
Without forgetting the 10% of turnover that goes to its environmental research project whose objective is the ecological restoration of those forests that have suffered a fire.
