Recycle Your Blues

Most of us have a few pairs of jeans we never wear lurking in the back of our closet or buried in our drawers.  Thanks a program at Gap, you can do something for the environment and make room for a new pair of jeans…

Recycled jeans are turned into people and environment friendly insulation.  It is safe to the touch, unlike the traditional pink fiberglass insulation.  By providing quality insulation and maintaining the temperature of a home, it also reduces the amount of greenhouse gases generated by the power demands of a home’s heating and cooling system.
