Can I help clean up the Oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico??


I just heard about this… salons collecting and donating hair clippings to help clean up the oil spill….incredible.

Via Daniel J. Hunter, If I Can, I Will, Just Ask (New Port Richey, FL Realtor with Fruits Real Estate):

Can I help clean up the Oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico?? 


Absolutely.  I am new to this as well, but feel the need to spread the word on how to help.  My plan is to organize my local Barber Shops / Salons / Dog Groomers, etc…. for people to contribute their hair trimmings.

On the off chance you missed it, Nearly 1,000 grooming salons in Petco stores began shipping donations of pet fur Friday to aid in creating booms to soak up oil from the Gulf of Mexico.

Surprisingly hair extracts the oil from the water in an eco-friendly manner ( as opposed to burning it )


Matter of Trust is a non-profit that is involved in the the cleanup.  They collect hair (donations,) in donated warehouses to store and create the booms used to soak up the oil.  They leave the cleanup to the professionals, but provide a valuable Eco-Friendly tool to manage oil spills

So please organize your local community, animals and humans alike, to donate their clippings to Matter of Trust and help us Clean up the Gulf of Mexico, because if you were not aware of it, I Love The Gulf and you can Google that term to find me.

You do not have to be a Warmer to take action in this ecological disaster.  I thank you in advance

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
