Why this matters?

Our goal is to divert fibers from the waste stream, sort them into useful stockpiles, create replicable, sustainable green jobs, and manufacture renewable material products that clean our waterways.

Great ideas often only stay ideas unless they are presented to the right people at the right time. And, to really take off, I believe they need to link up with complementary great ideas.

President of Matter of Trust

In 2017, we opened the Matter of Trust Eco-Industrial Hub in the heart of San Francisco, a city which gets millions of tourists a year.

We created this model factory site to make hair mats and have exhibits on clean air, water, energy, and ideal materials.

We are collaborating with other hubs throughout the US and beyond so that donors have many places to send fibers and the shipping costs and carbon footprint can be much lower.

Our goal is to promote local waste fiber collection and felting wherever there are harbors, ports, bays or simply storm drains. We’d like to think collecting waste fibers from salons and groomers will be the new “paper route-afterschool job.”
