Hairy Situation In The Gulf

The BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is such a tremendous tragedy.

The gallons keep pouring out and it’s just a matter of time before the shit hits the fan oil hits the sand.

I had heard some tidbits about the use of human hair and animal furs to help absorb the noxious mess before it reached land.

Then I ran across an environmental page at that illuminates how we citizens of the planet can pitch in  in several different ways.

Upon spotting a link there that mentioned shaving your poodle to aid the cause, I clicked the link to Matter of Trust’s website. I didn’t realize just how amazing the fur/hair option is in cleaning up the oil spill.

This isn’t a new thing. They’ve been working since 1998 out of San Francisco.

There’s more info about it all in this video.

So shear those sheep, ship your sheers. Whatever it takes to save the gulf.

  1. Wow. That’s incredible!

  2. i’d heard of this, and wasn’t sure how real it was – but i’m sold! got a bag of Mr. Pickles fur ready to go – now i know where to send it!

  3. Kathy, it is just amazing.

    Daisy Fae, I’m sure Mr. Pickles would gladly make a donation for the cause. I know our hounds shed enough every day to soak about gallons of the gunk.

  4. The Destructionist

    In the next four weeks, the Dow Jones Industrial Average will drop at least 300 points upon growing fears of the ongoing economic crisis looming in the United States and abroad as instability in Greece and other European countries suffer the devaluation of the Euro as it tumbles into “no man’s land.”

    BP’s latest attempt to cap the oil pipeline 5,000 feet underwater (a.k.a. “Top Kill”) using robots will fail. They will then come up with a “new plan” out of thin-air in an effort to seal the pipe and to instill confidence in the public. The Obama Administration will finally step in to take control of the operation, adding much needed resources in an effort to assuage the outrage being felt by Americans everywhere over this environmental catastrophe. A team of engineers and scientists will be sent down to the ocean floor, via bathyscaphe, in order to view the damage head-on and to make assessments as to how to repair the damage.

    Is this a future foretold, or just simple deductive reasoning?

    You decide.

  5. The only issue Ive had thus far in the cleanup attempts from third parties was the disapproval for this method. If it works go with it id say, but a lot of groups who have been helping to both collect and donate hair have had to stop. Considering the limited options available I wonder why.

    If I was in that situation Id grab a razor and a bag and head to the woods. There wouldnt be a non bald animal left.

  6. very nice videos. I finally know where you can see it.

    greeting Manuela

  7. Guess I should have saved DJ’s hair yesterday…thta is amazing!
