  • Hair isn’t just for top knots; it can protect the ocean too.Subscribe to our channel! oil spills have declined over the years, they still happen, and when they do, it can be devastating to the environment. One natural way to help contain oil spills is through the use of hair booms and hair mats. Hair is a naturally hydrophobic and biosorbent, which means, it repels water and can collect heavy metals and other contaminants, like oil. The more popular methods to contain oil spills use synthetic materials and chemicals, which can be costly and just as dangerous to environment. So, it’s worth exploring eco-friendly ways to clean up the ocean and other waterways.You can learn more about how hair-booms and hair mats can be used during oil spills on Matter of Trust’s website: is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    There is a French company that invented a boat to collect oil spills without any chemicals or waste. But the oil industry is fighting against them because of a conflict of interest.

    @KaleochipsThe companies lose money in spills, so how could you possibly think they would want them to be gotten rid of?

    Is there any way to check which hair salons are a part of this? I'd love to support businesses helping the environment like this, and am now wondering how weird it would be to ask my stylist "do you guys donate your hair to oil spill cleanups?" XD
