Natural Oil Booms - Hair Boudin! Please donate hair and contact your salon and pet groomer!

1 post / 0 new

Looking for a simple way to help us out here in SE Louisiana? Matter of Trust is spearheading an effort to send human and pet hair to our coast to build booms to collect oil as it washes ashore. We in New Orleans are calling them Hair Boudin (a local sausage pronounced Boo-Dan)! Hair collects 4-5 times its weight in oil.... synthetic booms made from plastic absorb 12-15 times their weight (but are in short supply). Please contact your local salons and pet groomers and ask them to not only save their hair clippings, but to send them to us!This will be a continuing effort even after the oil volcano is stopped... all hair should be recycled this way!

Great videos explaining how it works and how to make a boom:

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
