Donate Hair, Save The Ocean
The poster has this accompanying blurb:
"The recent oil spill near Guimaras Island could take a year to clean up.
Recent studies however, found that Oil clings to hair in a process known as ADSORPTION, in which the tiny scales on hair snag and hold oil. A pound of quilted hair will adsorb a gallon of oil in two minutes.
Greenpeace, one of the organizations leading in the rescue operations in Guimaras needs to collect as many human hair as they can at the soonest time possible.
Azta Urban Salon is seeking to help this movement by becoming an official collection center of human hair.
You can make a difference by having your haircut at the soonest time possible.

Lest you think it is another foolish plan, read this. Sure, it's gratuituos plugging but heck, at least they're trying to do something to save the environment. So if you're planning to get that haircut any time soon, why don't you head on over to their salon and donate some of your hair. Should come in handy what with this most recent development in the waters of Subic Bay...
