Old Jeans = New Home Insulation


Jeans image from Wikipedia

Looking to clean out your closet?  Here’s a novel recycling idea: Today from 6 to 10 PM the National Jean Company in Bethesda is collecting old jeans. The store will donate them to Habitat for Humanity, which – and this is the cool part – will use them as insulation in the homes they build.

You get something out of the deal too: National Jeans kicks in 20 percent off and you can even get a recommendation on the fit of those new jeans by J Brand’s chief stylist.

National Jean Company, 7301 Woodmont Ave., Bethesda, 301-907-0295
