Hair Sausages and Transvestites

Want to help with the oil spill clean-up efforts?  Donate your hair and pantyhose to create booms, or, head down to the Gulf and help make the booms yourself!  Transvestites and hair salons in California are doing their part!

These booms are a more natural alternative than booms made of plastic.  The animal and human hair combo soak up the oil that’s floating in the Gulf.

Listen to the NPR story, “Sopping Up an Oil Slick with Castaway Hair,” by Alexis Diao.

Oil containment booms are made from donated hair stuffed into nylons.
