Recycling denim into insulation is a good use for old jeans that are too worn out to be handed down or donated. The problem is that it's not always easy to find a place that will take them. Now it is easy. They can be sent in to:
NG KIDS/Set a Guinness World Record
P.O. Box 98001
Washington, Dc 20090-8001
However, you don't have to send them and pay the postage. If you drop by any Build-A-Bear Workshop between March 27-29, 2009, you can donate your jeans there, and you'll get a free virtual gift to use at buildabearville.com. Just don't let your kids suck you into making a bear while you're donating.
All jeans must be received by June 30, 2009. Any denim is accepted, not just jeans.
