Hair Donations Still Being Accepted For Gulf Oil Spill

Hair Donations Are Still Being Accepted For the Oil Spill

British Petroleum may not want hair clippings to soak up oil in the Gulf, but that's not stopping Matter of Trust from using them. About two weeks ago, BP informed the ecological nonprofit that its oil-soaking needs are being met with synthetic booms. (Which are likely made with petroleum-derived products. Oh, the irony.)

The problem with synthetic booms is that they eventually need to be placed in a landfill or burned, causing further pollution. However, natural materials like fur, hair, and feathers can be composted. Plus, the hair boom method worked rather well in the Cosco Busan oil spill in SF back in 2007. So Matter of Trust is still accepting donations, and the group is instead working with Gulf Coast parishes and counties as well as official government hazmat teams. Will these hair booms solve the bigger problem? No, but at this point, any bit helps. Learn more about hair booms in our earlier post, and find out how to help at Matter of Trust.
