(INTERESTING USE FOR LEVIS)...OLD JEANS MADE INTO NEW INSULATION
Loveland Habitat for Humanity in Colorado is turning worn-out jeans into insulation.
The non-profit started collecting the jeans three months ago. Four thousand pairs are now waiting to be transformed.
It only takes 500 pairs of jeans to insulate the average home.
Loveland Habitat will send all the denim to a company in Arizona where they will shred the jeans. The jeans are non-toxic, give off no off gases, and are completely safe to install in your home.
The program is called "Blue Into Green". Branches of Habitat for Humanity signed up after Hurricane Katrina.
