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.

Go to matteroftrust.org to learn how to donate.

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. http://www.matteroftrust.org

BP Oil Spill

The BP oil spill in the Gulf Coast touched the shore yesterday.

This oil spill is quickly on its way to eclipsing the Exxon Valdez oil spill from 1989 – which they’re still cleaning up.  The oil spill is leaking 210,000 gallons of oil a day. 11 workers are presumed dead, 17 were injured, and besides unknown death to underwater wildlife, tens of thousands of animals are in danger along the Gulf Coast.

Just try and think about the damaging effects of oil to not only wildlife, but humans as well.
