I honestly had never heard about this until today!!! You can donate hair; human, animal, nylon, etc... To help clean up the oil spill and save lives!!! How neat is that?! Apparently, hair holds oil like none other, (which is why we have to wash it all the time... Duh.) and so this group makes these huge hair mats from donated hair to help "sweep" up all the oil to help save our environment and the affected sea life. Aaaannnddd - The hair is placed with mushrooms, and somehow it pulls the oil out of the hair making the hair compost able!!! Not only is it helping the environment, but it's good for the environment when all is done! Anywhoo~ I am completely excited about finding this out, and I have been sending the link to everyone I know. Most of my friends are dog owners, volunteer for a rescue/shelter or work with animals or human hair, so I am sharing this with everyone I know!! Please spread the word to anyone you know who might be interested! You can view the page to sign up by clicking here.
