Today I am running around preparing for an upcoming school event but I am also going to swing by the mall to drop off these…
Yeah, quite a pile, huh?
I try not to contribute to land fills whenever possible
so I never throw out old jeans.
I feel bad donating the ones with holes in them
so the old pairs just pile up in my house
until a local retailer sponsors a recycling program.
Luckily, I received an email recently that J. Crew and Madewell are collecting old jeans in their stores. J. Crew will collect until September 30th and Madewell until October 6th. They are also providing a $20 credit toward a new pair of jeans for your donation! Needless to say, I will be donating!
This collection is a campaign run by Cotton – Blue Jeans Go Green who collects old jeans and recycles them into insulation. If you don’t have a J.Crew or Madewell store near you, you can also mail in your old jeans. Just scroll through the Cotton – Blue Jeans Go Green website for more information.
Great idea huh? Just doing my part to go green whenever I can!
Oh, and by the way, I am NOT being compensated in any way to mention this campaign. I just like to pass along helpful information to you when I can!
Do you have any old jeans you can donate?
