I recently discovered the most amazing recycling program, you guys! After my husband Purified his closet, he had a stack of old blue jeans that were too worn out for donation. I feared that they were destined for the trash, which I really wanted to avoid (especially after last week’s episode on Landfill Guilt).
Before we went that route, I did a Google search for people or programs who accept old denim for projects or recycling.
I. Hit. The. Jackpot. In mere moments, I discovered Blue Jeans Go Green, an organization that recycles old denim into insulation for Habitat for Humanity.
Talk about win-win-win! My husband’s old, worn out jeans are no longer stacked up in my kitchen and they aren’t destined for the landfill! Instead they’re being recycled into a useful building material for an awesome non-profit organization.
As you’ll hear in the episode, discovering new and exciting recycling and upcycling options gets me so jazzed up! It fuels my passion for Home Energy Purification, and I just want to shout it from the rooftops.
My hope is that my recycling win will serve as encouragement for you to seek out new options for your old stuff too.
Please share about your recycling and upcycling finds in the comments below, so we can spread the word! (Or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.) I may share your find on the podcast, too.
Until next time, my friends, stay inspired and keep on Purifying!
