J.Crew Brands & Blue Jeans Go Green™ Denim Recycling Program

There is a great new cause I have to tell you about. A denim recycling program. What is that all about, you ask? I'll tell you.
You've heard of J. Crew right?! They have announced their continued partnership with Cotton Incorporated's Blue Jeans Go Green™ recycling program in their J. Crew and Madewell retail stores. This drive first kicked off August 12 in 74 Madewell stores, and then 269 J. Crew stores started on August 21. Both stores have extended the recycling program. J. Crew will keep going until December 31, 2014, and Madewell will end January 31, 2015. 





During the denim drive, customers can bring their old jeans to J. Crew or Madewell stores, receiving a $20 towards their next denim purchase in-store. The cool part is what they do with that denim they recycle. It is recycled into UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation as part of the Blue Jeans Go Green™ program
Cotton Incorporated began the denim recycling program in 2006 to help benefit local communities across the United States. Over one million pieces of denim have been collected to date, and the insulation has been distributed to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity to help communities in need. Approximately 250,000 square feet of insulation are distributed each year and the Blue Jeans Go Green™ program has diverted over 600 tons of waste from landfills since its inception. 
So how, cool is that? Waste, no more!

  2. This sounds like a wonderful program! I hadn't heard of it before and that's amazing what they can turn the jeans into. I have a few pairs that I don't wear anymore that would be perfect for this :) Thanks for sharing!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
