Gap invites customers to "Recycle Your Blues" and get 30% off new Gap denim. Cotton Incorporated will be working with Gap to launch the COTTON. FROM BLUE TO GREEN.® denim drive in about 1,000 Gap stores. From March 5 through March 14, consumers can donate old denim at their local Gap, which will then be given a “new life” by being converted into UltraTouch Natural Cotton Fiber Insulation, and donated to communities in need. Consumers who donate their denim will receive a 30% discount off new denim purchases. Since the COTTON. FROM BLUE TO GREEN.® denim drive program began, enough denim has been recycled to create natural cotton fiber insulation for over 540 homes.

One of the building industry’s most environmentally friendly products just got a whole lot greener and a bit less confusing. UltraTouch Natural Cotton Fiber Insulation, commonly referred to as “recycled blue jean insulation”, is now sourced entirely of post-consumer blue jeans instead of the post-industrial denim scraps it was previously made from. The recycled jean material has made its way through the used clothing chain without being sold and has reached a point where it would typically either go to a landfill or be incinerated. Now, this material will be put to good use in UltraTouch cotton insulation.
Additionally, UltraTouch’s packaging has been improved to increase its product per truckload by 15 percent. This significantly lowers the product’s carbon footprint and makes shipping easier.

Habitat for Humanity Greensboro is hosting a Blitz Build in September called Raising Roofs and UltraTouch Cotton Insulation is being donated to support the cause. Six houses will be built during a five day period. All of the volunteers building the houses will be local professional builders. On the first day of the build, Monday, September 20, builders will learn about many of the new green products being used on the build. Stacy Glass from CaraGreen will be demonstrating how to work with UltraTouch insulation. To learn more about UltraTouch, click here.
