Do you want to help fight the Gulf oil spill? Here is a way for you to do just that. An organization called Matter of Trust collects human hair, animal hair, fur, wool and feathers. They also collect nylons. Matter of Trust creates hair mats that absorb oil. These mats are reusable over and over again. You can collect this yourself or tell your salon, barber or pet groomer about this organization. By recycling hair two things happen; hair doesn’t enter landfulls, and hair helps fight oil spills. In Eau Claire, Paws N Claws is sending pet hair and fur that they collect from grooming pets to Matter of Trust. Please pass this information along.
