DONATE YOUR HAIR AND NYLONS TO HELP WITH THE GULF OIL SPILL

There are over 370,000 hair salons and pet groomers in the US that collect an average of 1 pound of hair a day. Right now, most of the hair goes into the waste steam, but it could ALL be made into hair mats and booms. Hair is stuffed into recycled nylons called booms. These booms are then tied together and used to encircle and contain oil spills to keep oil from spreading.

**This includes pet hair**

If you are interested please go to matteroftrust.org and sign up to recieve mailing instrustions and addresses of warehouses down south. It's easy just call up your local salon or pet groomer and ask them to collect hair for a week and send it in. Any amount will help!
