We all get it. We shampoo because hair collects oil.
Why should millions of pounds of absorbant, natural, renewable fiber go to waste every day?
Anyone and Everyone: salons, groomers, wool farmers and individuals can sign up to donate hair, fur, waste wool... clippings, as well as nylons (panty hose) and funding for our Hair for Oil Spills program. Our Excess Access program SIGN UP is FREE, FAST and HELPS us to coordinate the masses of donations going to the Gulf. More info
A delivery address in the Gulf will be emailed to you. We're not posting warehouse addresses on the web, because we're coordinating how much goes where. All along the Gulf Coast new harbor depots are being temporarily donated to this cause. We're doing this in WAVES (WAVE 9 begins May 11) due to the unprecedented surge of donors signing up every hour! They're coming in from all over the US as well as Canada, UK, France, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Austrailia...! It's an international philanthropic community phenomenon!
Hundreds of thousands of pounds of hair and nylons are coming in now by UPS, FED EX, USPS (we're getting our own zip codes now) as well as donated trucking, from every State in the US and from Canada, UK, France, Spain, Germany, Brazil..! Everyone wants to make this happen!
If you live in the Northern hemisphere, now's a great time to take your dogs to the groomer for that 'summer clip' they love so much. Send in those clippings to save the Gulf instead of vacuuming shedding fur all summer!
