• About Matter of Trust

    Matter of Trust is an ecological, public, 501(c)(3) charity that concentrates on manmade surplus, natural surplus and eco-education.

    Matter of Trust currently organizes shipping, storage and distribution of boom-making materials to regions affected by the Gulf oil spill. Other activities include media presentations on the current spill program, ongoing environmental education and continued partnership with Phil McCrory to produce the Otti Mat, a key component in the Hair Mat Oil Spill Program. Since 2000, Matter of Trust has helped thousands of salons recycle hair and create more green jobs.

    Matter of Trust sparks community action on issues such as water decontamination of spills and soil erosion. The organization offers many grassroots ways to get involved in environmental cleanup, from direct donation of supplies -hair and nylons – to cash donations to help pay for netting and hair boom stuffing parties. Currently, thousands of salons and groomers across the country support boom stuffing and hair mat manufacturing efforts by sending hair trimmings and recycled nylons.

    Hair stylists and pet groomers can help by contacting the website www.MatterOfTrust.org or by calling 415-242-6041. All of us can help by getting our hair cut and donating nylons to local participating salons. For information on the mats: www.ottimat.com

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
