Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign

Pantene has started a great campaign called "Pantene Beautiful Lengths." Their campaign encourages people to grow, cut and donate their hair to create free, real-hair wigs for women who've lost their hair due to cancer.

Did you know real-hair wigs can cost as much as $1200 and are often only partially covered by health insurance?

Actress Hilary Swank started the Million-Inch Chain by donating 8 inches of her hair. Join her and Pantene and donate your hair so women who have lost theirs can have a free, real-hair wig.

There are 3 ways to get involved:
1. "Cut"- you're ready to donate an 8-inch ponytail.
2. "Pleadge"- you're growing it now and will cut later.
3. "Help"- help plan events, campaigns, and drives.

If you made the cut, go here for instructions where to send your donated hair.

The Endangered Species Act

For 35 years the Endangered Species Act has protected plants and animals that are on the brink of extinction. Unfortunately, the Bush Administration wants to change the act. They are targeting the important Section 7 of the act. As of now, Section 7 has independent experts reviewing projects. Currently federal agencies need to consult with the National Marine Fisheries Service or Fish and Wildlife to determine whether a project would affect species and/or its habitat.

If the Bush Administration has its way, no experts would be involved in reviewing new projects. Instead, certain federal agencies such as the Department of Transportation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers or the Office of Surface Mining would have the authority to review projects and let the projects procede. They would be doing this without consulting important independent biologists or botanists who are experts in this type of decision making. In other words, the Bush administration wants federal agencies to decide for themselves whether highways, dams, mines and other construction projects might harm endangered animals and plants.

It is ridiculous that agencies whose missions are building roads and leasing land and waters for mines and oil drilling will have the power to assess the environment. Their main concern will not be the endangered animals and plants. Their main concern is money, building, and doing anything possible to fulfill their selfish goals.

1,353 animals and plants in the U.S. are listed as threatened or endangered. We need to protect them.

Please sign a petition to protect America's endangered species. It is sponsored by the Environmental Defense Fund. Click here to sign.
