Isn't Memorial Day wonderful? It seems to come right at the perfect time each year. Its always a long weekend because it always falls on a Monday and it it really marks the fact that Summer has arrived.

If you are in need of a new hairstyle, we know where you can send your old locks, and by doing so help to clean up the massive oil spill of late. We are all know that hair collects oil, which is why we are forced to shampoo it. Makes sense right? Well what is more eco than what the nonprofit Matter of Trust has been making called 'booms'.
