Locks (and fur and pantyhose) for Love

May 11, 2010 § 2 Comments

No these are not burnt sausages nor are they super skinny potatoes. These tubey things are used pantyhose stuffed with human hair and animal fur (of course!). Evidently they create super absorbent oil booms. Matter of Trust, a San Francisco-based nonprofit collects locks from over 300,000 salons and barbershops throughout North and South America, China, and India and creates these “booms.” You can read more about the Gulf  Coast spill and see where you can donate your hair, fur or pantyhose here and here.

    William just got a ton of hair cut and they were going to donate it to the oil spill clean-up.

    I know the oil spill is bad, but every time I see the seal picture I can’t help but laugh. The caption is tooooo good.
