The transition energy and buildings group are going to be talking to all of the local hairdressers to see whether they can source enough hair to insulate the new compost toilet that has been constructed on Norwich Farmshare's Postwick site. This is to try and prevent it from freezing next winter, which could cause expensive damage to the new system.
They are going to need about a tonne of hair to do a proper job and if they manage to collect more than this then they may be able to insulate the shipping container as well so that Laura has a warm office.
If you know of any local hairdressers who may be willing to donate their trimmings or if you would like to donate your hair when you cut it at home, then please contact Kerry on (email@example.com) to arrange collection.
