Matter of Trust
You shampoo because hair collects oil! Partner with this charity which is globally connecting oil spill clean up with barbers, stylists and pet groomers. Celebrating that energy, recycling and renewables are a positive part of all our lives, MatterofTrust.org encourages the public to safely take part in clean water solutions. Clippings are felted into mats that soak up petroleum. This encourages turning waste into resources, creates cottage textile industries and provides local green jobs.
By partnering over the last 18 years, we have benefited from experts in energy company sustainability teams, oil spill clean up services, storm drain catchment cage makers, installers, end users, research institutes, recyclers and large networks of salons, groomers, fleece & fowl farmers and more. We opened our model factory in San Francisco, California and now have hubs in the USA - New Hampshire & Detroit, Europe - Athens & Oslo as well as hundreds of thousands of willing fiber donors from over 30 countries.
At this expo, we hope to hear what the industry would like to see next as far as community involvement in preparedness and discuss the educational and public relations potential with this program.
