Rowan students collect 'green' jeans

Rowan University students are collecting used denim for "Cotton. From Blue to Green," a program which repurposes the material into home insulation.
Your worn-out Levi's could one day help to keep a family warm.

From Feb. 6-20, Rowan University students will collect used denim for "Cotton. From Blue to Green," a program which repurposes the material into home insulation.

The collected denim products are stripped for the cotton, and the cotton is turned into UltraTouch insulation for buildings.  The insulation is used in communities to assist with building efforts.

New and used denim products in any condition, including jackets, pants and shirts, will be accepted. Denim products can be dropped off at the Information Desk or at Profs Place, both located inside the Chamberlain Student Center, 201 Mullica Hill Road, Glassboro.

The Rowan Chamberlain Student Center staff and Rowan University Graduate Student Organization (RUGSO) are leading the denim drive.
