Cotton Incorporated and American Eagle Outfitters Inc. (AEO) announced a continued partnership for the Cotton. From Blue to Green. denim recycling program, taking place in over 800 American Eagle Outfitters stores across the U.S.

Beginning October 3rd through October 14th, American Eagle Outfitters customers are invited to bring any type of denim from any brand to American Eagle Outfitters stores.  The denim is then given a "new life" by being converted into UltraTouch Denim Insulation. Everyone who recycles their denim will receive a 20% discount on their AEO purchase that day.

People Stylewatch is helping to create further awareness for denim recycling at American Eagle Outfitters through promotion in their October publication. Customers can check out the latest denim trends in the magazine's 2nd annual Denim Awards issue and then head to American Eagle Outfitters to purchase new jeans, at a discount, when they turn in their old ones. People StyleWatch branding will appear on the denim drop boxes and in fitting room signage featured at American Eagle Outfitters.

"Cotton Incorporated is excited to once again partner with American Eagle Outfitters," said Marissa Barlin, National Spokesperson, Cotton. From Blue to Green.. "This program allows customers a discount on new denim, while offering the environmentally-responsible option to keep old denim out of landfills."

In addition to working with American Eagle Outfitters, the denim recycling program continues to gain momentum by partnering with colleges, consumers and corporate responsibility programs throughout the nation.  All denim collected through the Cotton. From Blue to Green. program is recycled into UltraTouch Denim Insulation, and a portion of this insulation, up to approximately 250,000 square feet, will be distributed in 2013 to communities in need.

This year, American Eagle Outfitters is adding a unique social element to the program with the Recycle. Rejean. Contest. Starting on October 1st and ending on October 10th, people from around the nation can show how they are personally committed to helping communities in need.

"American Eagle Outfitters' customers are committed to giving back to their communities," said Marcie Eberhart, Director of the American Eagle Outfitters Foundation. "The Cotton. From Blue to Green. denim drive and the Recycle. Rejean. Contest. allow them a way to take action by diverting denim from landfills and also inspire others around the nation to join in on voluntary efforts."

In 2006, Cotton Incorporated and Bonded Logic partnered for the launch of the Cotton. From Blue to Green. denim recycling program. The denim collected is given new life by converting it to UltraTouch Denim Insulation.  To date, the Cotton. From Blue to Green. program has received nearly 850,000 pieces of denim, resulting in over 1.7 million square feet of insulation. That's approximately 531 tons of denim diverted from landfills.
