Cotton From Blue to Green

I've been lustfully eyeing this denim jacket from Gap since it hit the website:


I want it. Badly. I already have a denim jacket (which I never wear) but I don't care. Its silvery buttons and classic shape pale in comparison to the exposed golden hardware and motorcycle silhouette of this particular Gap beauty. I could wear it with sweet floral dresses and combat boots, or even just with a white tee and jeans. Either way it would be glorious.

The Problem: There goes $69.50 I can't justify.

The Solution: Gap is involved with this awesome program called Cotton from Blue to Green. The gist is that you can bring an old pair of jeans into Gap stores until March 14th. Donated jeans will be converted into UltraTouch Natural Cotton Fiber Insulation, which will be given to communities that need them to assist with building efforts. In exchange for your donation, Gap will give you 30% off new denim purchases.

And $48.50 for a kick-ass jacket, along with knowing I helped communities in need; now that's something I can justify. The only obstacle is figuring out how/when I can actually get to Gap. Ah, the trials and tribulations of a college student.

For more information check out the Cotton From Blue to Green website.

I miss the Gap a lot. And working there justified every purchase I made there, even if I blew several of my paychecks.

If you hang the plants high enough ed hardy wholesale will never reach the ground so you no longer have to worry about wholesale ed hardy rotting from touching the ground. polo shoesGrowing tomatoes upside down involves planting the ugg boots in a container instead of polo boots in the garden. You can purchase moncler to do this but I like to go it on my own. However, moncler jackets do give you the option of having a beautiful moncler coats inspired dress without entirely diverting your hard earned funds to your ankh royalty. Can you imagine wearing a dress ankh royalty clothing does not pass your ideal dress to wear ankh royalty T shirt on your wedding day? If you can commit enough time for designing your own ankh royalty outlet, you can do it very easily!Twisted HeartHave you ever had an experience of not having a dress in your mind?
