A NEW USE FOR DENIM JEANS

A NEW USE FOR DENIM JEANS

Instead of throwing out your old, worn jeans consider giving them new life as insulation. Your donated denim can be shredded into fibers and turned into housing insulation, which will then be used in Habitat For Humanity projects across the country. The process requires a minimal amount of energy to manufacture, which conserves energy and reduces pollution, especially in comparison to the methods used to manufacture traditional insulation. Check online for the denim drive near you and you can help keep people warm in their homes while also reducing landfill waste and energy usage.
