The program has been going on for 8 years. You donate your old, used pair of jeans or any kind denim and Habit for Humanity turns it into insulation. So, instead of having toxic fiber glass in your walls, you now have recycled denim.

The Blue Jeans Go Green project has surpassed its goal of 1 million jeans donated. To help reach that goal, 12 celebrities like Hayden Panettiere of hit Television show “Nashville” have donated a signed pair of Blue Jeans. These signed pair of jeans were then bid on. But, instead of bidding with money, people bid on with denim.
