Donate Hair and Old Nylons to Clean Up Oil
Hair absorbs oil. Matter of Trust, a non-profit organization, will take hair clippings from salons and pet groomers to make booms and mats for Gulf oil cleanup. The mats and booms can be used over and over, and are a safe and highly effective way to remove oil from water.
Who would have thought that something so simple could work so well? What are you waiting for? call your hair salon/barber/pet groomer now! Ask them to donate hair. Together, we can help this situation in a very direct way.
