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!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
