Bonded Logic makes insulation out of old denim, proof of which is that Newsweek profile of Adrian Grenier.

I have bookmarked this for when I get it together to do something with my old jeans. I don't buy new jeans but go to the second hand store for used ones. Of course there is still the question of what to do with them when they are too far gone to wear so this is good.

Thanks for this information. I'll keep it in bookmarks the next time I have to dispose of my thrift shop jeans.

I cut my old jeans into shorts to wear around the house and use the legs to patch up still wearable jeans.

What a great idea! Now I just have to wear them long enough to wear them out. I've had most of my jeans for 15-20 years. Guess I just take good care of them....
Thanks, Cher.

It is now 4 and 1/2 years later - I wonder if they are accepting donations again!
