Haircuts to clean up Peru’s oil spill


Beauty salons in Peru give free haircuts to attract donations from Peruvians across the country to save marine wildlife affected by the recent oil spill. Authorities say almost 12,000 barrels spilled into the Pacific Ocean on January 15. The tanker was hit by freak waves triggered by a tsunami after a massive volcanic eruption near Tonga, more than 10,000 kilometers away. The donated hair is sent to organisations which use it to clean beaches.
