P&G Ships Dawn Products To Help With Oil Spill

The Procter & Gamble Company is now lending a helping hand after the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Over the weekend, P&G chartered a truck to deliver a 1,000 bottles of Dawn from the Kansas City plant to wildlife rescue centers in Louisiana and Alabama. For the last 30 years, P&G has partnered with the International Bird Rescue Research Center and the Marine Mammal Center to assist in wildlife rescue efforts. Rescuers have centers set up in the Gulf to clean the birds but they've encountered weather problems so it's taking longer than expected to rescue them. Bird specialists say Dawn is the best product since it will cut through grease without hurting the skin. "Those two benefits are really applicable when you think about the rescue efforts because the oil that's on these birds is extremely thick and the birds themselves have very delicate feathers and very sensitive skin so Dawn can aid in that rescue effort to clean the oil off of them," said Susan Baba with The Pro
