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!

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



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.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
