Hair Needed To Mop Oil In Gulf Region

Rein-Aid wants hair to ship to the gulf ASAP. We have identified a wonderful not-for-profit organization that has set up emergency warehouses all along the gulf coast. They stuff nylon stockings with hair to create booms that mop up the oil.

Send us your horse hair if you need to clip for a show, pull a mane or trim a tail. If you groom or clip a dog, send us that. Ask you hair salon to give you their daily take of cut hair or ask them to contact us directly.

Any type of hair will work, but it must not contain debris or manure that could harm the volunteers stuffing the hair into the stockings.

Ladies, we need your old nylons, any color and ladders are no problem.
