Thorndal Armstrong Delk Balkenbush & Eisinger is happy to announce it recently completed a denim drive for a charitable recycling program, Blue Jeans Go Green. The drive collected more than 50 pairs of jeans that may have otherwise been sent to a landfill.
Blue Jeans Go Green started in 2006 and strives to collects denim to recycle it into natural cotton fiber, an environmentally-friendly insulation. In addition to helping the environment, the program claims the up cycled insulation has about a 30% better sound absorption than traditional fiberglass insulation. To date Blue Jean Go Green states it has recycled more than 600 tons of denim, generating more than 2,000,000 square feet of insulation. This insulation was provided to over 30 Habitat for Humanity affiliates around the country.
