If you are thinking about getting a haircut in the next few days, you might want to ask your barber or stylist to save it, so you can donate it to Matter of Trust. MoT is an organization that takes human hair and animal fur and either felts it into flat hair mats or combines it with nylon mesh to create oil booms.These mats and booms are then used to soak the oil right out of the water after an oil spill. There is video on their website showing what the mats and booms look like and as well as a demonstration of how well they work. Since warehouse space is limited, if you plan to donate, please contact them first so that they can provide you with a shipping delivery.
I knew this was something they had started doing a few years ago, but I had no idea how to donate. I think it’s time for a haircut, don’t you?
