Adrian Grenier show his recycled jean insulation
Entourage star Adrian Grenier used recycled jeans to insulate his eco home in Brooklyn.
But recycling jeans isn't just for superstars. Now your kids can recycle old jeans and break a Guinness World Record!
CafeMom caryndavidson wrote in to tell me National Geographic Kids magazine is asking readers around the world to donate old jeans to set a Guinness World Record for the Largest Collection of Clothes to Recycle.
After officials record the final tally, National Geographic Kids will donate the jeans to the Cotton. From Blue to Green.® denim drive, which gives denim a second life by recycling it into insulation for use in restoring or rebuilding homes damaged by hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural disasters.
This sounds like a great way to get your kids involved in doing something good for the planet—and they can clean out their closets at the same time! Hey, toss in a pair or two of your old pairs of jeans too.
Be a green superstar! Check out National Geographic Kids for details on where to send your jeans. Jeans must be received by June 30, 2009!
