Shopping at the GAP means going for the green

THIS is awesome.

Last night when I was in bed I got an email from The Gap with and announcement for their newest sale event. Usually I don't pay much attention to these as The Gap can be kinda boring to me and I usually only shop there for the basics.

The announcement says that if you bring in a pair of your old jeans they will give you 30% off your purchase of a new pair.

Recently they've been making some pretty awesome jeans with their 1969 collection, they're more fashionable and high end and less mom jeans lookalikes. I've bought a couple of pairs in the last year or so and I really like them, they're comfortable and up to date with the newest fashions.

So I went down there today to look at their new jeans. I wanted to know what they were going to do with the old pair, and it turns out if you give them a pair of your old jeans they're going to recycle and send them to be used for eco-friendly housing insulation. I LOVE this! Not only do you get a new pair of spiffy jeans at a pretty good discount you get to get rid of your old ones and know that they are going towards a great cause. SO much better than just throwing them away!

The "Recycle Your Blues" event is going on from March 5-14, so go on down there and get your self a new pair of blues and give your old ones up!

I got these pretty babies,

And I'm thinking about taking more of my old ones down just because I can barely close my jeans drawer as it is, so I might as well. Go for it! And let me know what new jeans you get!


  1. That is one of the coolest things I have ever heard. First your jeans keep your legs warm, then they keep the inside of someones house cozy... :)

  2. Oooh, that pair is amazing. I'm going to do this. I have so many pairs of jeans I don't wear. I wonder if you gave them 2 pairs, they'd give you 60% off? :)

  3. Do they have to be Gap jeans or can they be any jeans?

  4. I think they can be any jeans as far as I know.
