We had an incredibly successful Denim Drive! Many thanks to all contributors! After sorting, counting and packing we diverted over HALF A TON of unwanted denim from the landfill! 765 pieces have been shipped to Blue Jeans Go Green's recycling center in Arizona. Blue Jeans Go Green does not cover shipping costs, so we are still seeking sponsorship partners to share in the the recycling campaign press. Any little bit helps, so please consider making any size donation you can afford to help with this recycling effort. There were many more pieces of good denim which were donated but not 90-100% cotton which were donated to Thrifty Shopper, a part of the Rescue Mission benefiting homeless shelters in New York State.

"I just got it and I absolutely love it! It's an incredible design, I love the cut out for the lower back."

"I believe that products 'Made in America' are so smart. Why Tommy Hillfiger, Ralph Lauren The Gap... these All-American 'looks' are made overseas when we need American factories, bewliders me? I am very proud of your commitment."
