What Drives Us

Our Mission, Vision & Goals

Our mission is to link surplus with needs.

We envision humanity harmonizing with Earth. 

Our goal is to encourage optimism and trust in nature’s abundant cycles.

Mother Nature is a catalyst and always in balance
Did you know?

LINKING surplus with needs diverts useful items and materials from the waste stream, plus creates jobs in logistics & repairs.

You shampoo because HAIR collects oil.  Help us gather clippings from salons and pet groomers. We felt fibers into mats that soak up oil spills.

COMPOSTING grazed rangelands boosts photosynthesis, pulling more carbon out of the air and returning it back into the soil.

Our Programs

We have 5 major program departments:

(1) Hair Matters is our global hair-mats-for-oil-spills project where we felt waste fibers into mats that soak up petrochemicals.

(2) Our Eco-Industrial Hub with model factory and exhibit hall is in the SoMa district of San Francisco. Visitors are also welcome at our nearby showcase

(3) Eco-Home, with urban edible garden. These places provide immersive tours and field trips.

(4) The Hum Sum – for Humanity Adding Solutions is our environmental social media platform, where everyone can share planet-friendly posts and research.

(5) Eco-Academy – Our Youth Eco-Education Programs include our green career internships & apprenticeships.

Hair Matters Global Hub PartnersLegendary Alpacas of Texas – Maypearl, Texas Legendary Alpacas of Texas is a 32-acre working ranch of show-quality Huacayan Alpacas that produce award-winning fleece year after year. Founder Gina Glasscock began pursuing her ‘Paca Passion in 2007 and now has over 60 alpacas and crias (babies) on the farm. Annually, Gina shears her herd, amassing Grade 1 and Grade 2 fleece and seconds, all of which is turned into consumer end-products, such as high-quality yarn, hats and scarves, custom rugs, and other home goods and clothing items, all of which are sold on-site in her retail store. She also collects and repurposes alpaca beans (waste) into a rich compost that is cultivated, aged, and then sold as high-quality fertilizer. Gina is an expert in alpaca genealogy and carefully tracks the lineage of current and prospective alpacas and their offspring for prime breeding opportunities that will ensure the long-term viability of the U.S. alpaca population and the integrity of best-in-class fleece. Legendary Alpacas of Texas offers alpacas for sale, for breeding, and for boarding and training and is recognized as a go-to resource for alpaca owners learning the business.matteroftrust.org/current-satellite-hub-partners/#alpaca #HairMats #thehumsum #MatterOfTrust #renewableresource ...
