Use your Head to Stop the Spread (of Oil)!

Air Tan & Salon Cut-A-Thon! Collecting Hair, Nylons and Funds To help clean up the Oil Spill in the Gulf.

Matter of Trust, an environmental non-profit, has helped clean up oil spills in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond since 1998 by reusing donated hair clippings from hair salons, barber shops, pet groomers, and wool farmers. Stuffing this donated hair into donated nylon stockings, this organization creates highly absorbent booms to contain oil spills.

Starting at noon, Air Tan's Cosmetologists will be providing haircuts for a minimal donation of $20. All proceeds benefit Matter of Trust a non for profit organization that is Linking Ideas, Sparking Action. Materializing Flourishing Systems.
Matter of Trust is a ecological public charity that concentrates on Man-made Surplus, Natural Surplus and Eco-Education.

Women, men, and children of all ages are encouraged to participate in this great opportunity. Guests will be served on a first come, first served basis. In order to raise the highest amount possible, style-outs may not be provided, however we will have assistants on hand to blow dry.

Please spread the word and bring your friends!!
