Horizon Relief Announces Sale of Bottles of Crude Oil as Part of Gulf Spill Relief Effort
A relief organization is bottling up the gooey BP oil fouling the Gulf of Mexico and selling it—for $1,000 a pop.
The nonprofit HorizonRelief.org, brainchild of a Louisiana oyster company, is selling 1,000 of the souvenir bottles and promises to give proceeds to out-of-work oyster workers and fishermen, reports the AP.
A pledge of 1000 dollars towards helping seafood laborers and secures you one of these numbered bottles of actual reclaimed oil from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Disaster represent the reclamation of the lives of the people most impacted by what has been described as the single greatest ecological disaster in the history of the United States: the seafood laborer. There is a tragic beauty in the oil from the gusher floating on salt water from the Gulf that will have you hanging on to this piece of history for the rest of your life. We're pleased to have you remember the part you played in making things better.
