Recycle Your Denim at J. Crew

A sure sign that spring is on its way in the Northern Hemisphere comes in the form of recycling events.  

Get ready to clean out your closets and divest yourselves of your old, worn out jeans!  

J. Crew has its Blue Jeans Go Green recycling event at its stores, and also at NASCAR events.  You can even download a printable mailing label and mail in your denim!  The denim collected at NASCAR events and through the mail is used for insulation to help people stay cool in the heat, and to keep warm in the cold.  Truly a versatile fabric, right?  

Blue jeans recycled in-store can get you 15% off your entire purchase when you buy a new pair of blue jeans.  

Check it out, and find more information here:  

I'll be updating with more information about recycling events coming in the NYC area, brought to you by the New York City Council on the Environment and the New York City Department of Sanitation (let's give a shout out to New York's Strongest, who have been kept busy moving snow and salting streets all winter long!) 

Be safe out there, while there's still ice and snow on the ground!
