Reports are all over the internet that a company called Matter of Trust is accepting donations of dog hair in order to help with the Gulf oil spill. I have always wondered if there was anything useful which could be done with all my dog’s hair. I thought of pillows or some-such cushy things. But then I thought, what happens when I wash it? I don’t want that ‘wet-dog’ smell in my pillows.
In all seriousness, donating dog hair to help a good cause like cleaning up the oil spill is a great idea. Check out Matter of Trust to see what other unusual items can be donated in order to help other issues. Matter of Trust specializes in finding good uses for man-made surplus and waste.
