I ran across this gizmo/gadget online at the Utney Reader site.
I think this is brilliant. It’s for erasing urban blight. It’s for creating green where before there was only brown, gray and dead spaces.
It’s seed bombs dispensed out of old gumball machines.
Where once there were super-bouncy balls and “diamond” rings, now flowers and blooming things are available.
Toss a few and watch them grow.
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 Change.org 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.
