How to Make a Difference? It's in the Jeans.

Look what I found on SuzySaid...every Mama's sharp, savvy and extremely well-connected online "galpal." (Yes, I still write for my local edition but that doesn't preclude me from being a fan or from singing their praises. Plus, what I found is really cool.)

Cotton Inc. and National Geographic Kids magazine have teamed up to assist Habitat for Humanity. It's part of Cotton Inc.'s "Cotton. From Blue to Green" initiative which collects used denim and recycles it, turning it into housing insulation for Habitat projects. How does it work? Check out their process.

The kids will have fun with this, too, because while they're helping people in need and being environmentally responsible, they can also work toward setting a world record for Guinness!

This is a terrific way for the whole family to make a difference together (not to mention get your closets cleaned out). Here's how to participate.
