Hairy People and Fur Babies Needed to Donate Hair for Oil Spill!

Matter of Trust is urgently looking for people to donate natural fibers, including nylons, which will be used to help clean up the oil spill.  People don't really realize how thick the oil is and how it piles up in your hands like cr*p.  See the picture above?  No kidding.  It's gross.  This is why these animals can't move and die a tortuous death.  They are being chained and pulled down in this oil. 

My friend and I had an unfortunate experience at a beach some years ago with a minor oil spill.  The oil was like black-green sludge that stuck to your body in clumps.  It was so disgusting and very difficult to remove.  It looked like feces or leeches all over our body.  It took at least ten showers before we could get it all off. 

If you can help or pass this site along to someone else, including salons, farmers, etc, please do. 

They are looking for:
  • nylons (ripped is fine)
  • natural hair (human and animal)
  • wool
  • fleece
  • feathers
  • fur
  • Other natural fibers
If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, they also have flyers available.
