Mail in Your Denim

Recycling denim into insulation can keep someone warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. One way to contribute is to mail in your used denim to the program directly. Here’s how:  
  • We recommended using our Mailing Label. However, if you choose to label your package yourself, please clearly address it to: The Blue Jeans Go Green™ Denim Recycling Program.
  • Please include your return address.
  • Please limit your package(s) to a maximum of 100 pieces of denim per parcel. If you have more than 100 pieces of denim, please contact us.
  • You are responsible for the cost of mailing your denim. You may select your carrier (for example USPS, FedEx, UPS, etc.)
  • Make sure your mailing package is strong enough to support the amount of denim you’re putting in it.
  • Only denim items can be sent; however, any type of denim apparel (not just jeans) is accepted.
  • Your denim may be mailed in any type of condition – it can contain rips, holes, bedazzling, etc.
  • You do not need to remove anything from your denim. All decorations including buttons, grommets, snaps, zippers, etc. are removed during the recycling process. However, no paper or cardboard tags may be attached to the denim. Please remove these items prior to shipping.
  • Please contact us with any additional questions.
