Gulf Oil Spill- How Can I Help?

Posted by Mrs Money on May 11th, 2010


If you haven’t heard about the Gulf Oil spill, you are probably living under a rock. When I see pictures or hear new stories, it saddens me.  The other day I heard of a some great ideas to help clean up the oil spill.

Matter of Trust is organizing ways to help with the cleanup of the oil spill.  There are many ways you can help, including:

Donating money. You can send checks made payable to “Matter of Trust” to

Matter of Trust, Inc.
99 St. Germain Avenue
San Francisco CA 94114

Donating Hair, fur, and recycled nylons. As silly as this sounds, think about it.  Why do we wash our hair?  Because it gets oily.  Hair absorbs oil and can help clean up the oil spill.  I’m going to donate some of the tons of dog hair I sweep off my floor every day!  I’ll collect it and send it in an envelope.  Hair is light, so it won’t cost much to send.

-Spread the word. If you can’t afford to give money, you can help by spreading the word!  I’m sure there are a lot of pet owners that would be willing to donate hair (and even some people!)

Would you donate hair to help clean up the Gulf oil spill?

  1. I saw a news piece on TV about how they use the hair to make mats that soak up the oil. Very interesting.

    Next time I get my hair cut, I’ll ask my stylist about it.


  2. Once it hits Galveston, I’ll be donating time. It’s only an hour and a half from my house…


  3. I found out not too long ago that there’s a bill being circulated to propose taxing the big oil companies for the damage they’ve caused with that spill.

    That’s probably the best way to get those fat cats concerned about it, if you ask me!


  4. the oil companies have plenty of money. Our money. they can afford to clean it up. I know they have lots of money because you never hear them asking for a bailout.
