Share Some Pet Hair

Did you know that yours and your pets hair can go to a good cause? A company called Matter of Trust is collecting clean hair clippings to create mats and booms that absorb oil in efforts to clean up the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

By signing up on their website, you can find out how to help– where to send hair clippings or local places at which you can drop them off.

Check out this video to see how the booms are made and learn some interesting facts about oil spills.

So next time you give Fluffy or Fido their regular haircut, be sure that the clippings don’t get thrown away, but rather donated to this great cause!
