Las Vegas-based show and clothing e-tailer Zappos’ retailer’s community outreach program, Zappos for Good, recently partnered with Cotton Inc. on the latter’s ‘Blue Jeans Go Green’ program to help consumers recycle denim. Zappos offers consumers a three-step process to donate unwanted denim products that will then be turned into insulation.

Each a year, a portion of this insulation will be distributed for building efforts across the country.

“Recycling denim and reducing textile waste is as easy as 1-2-3 and it’s free! Free shipping, to make it accessible for everyone,” read a statement on the Zappos for Good site.

The process offers a free shipping label downloaded from the Zappos website, to send a box of denim weighing no more than 50 pounds to the company. Boxes can be dropped off at any UPS store as well. (DS)
