Gap Wants Your Old Jeans (and You Can Get New Ones at a Discount)

You get new ones at a hefty discount.

You love your jeans so much you wear them every day until its color fades into something like white mold and the tiny hole on its crotch is now a can’t-miss-it gash. Here’s one way to continue your obssession with one of the most popular article of clothing in the world: Turn in your worn pair at the Gap and grab a new pair at 40 percent discount.

If the denim drive (dubbed Recycle Your Blues) seems too good to be true, it gets even better: Gap gives all your oldies to Hands On Manila, the do-gooder organization that uses the jeans, not only for donations, but also to teach in-need communites how to make a living (with a little elbow grease, paint, and a sewing machine, old jeans can become cool upcycled bags, for example).

Fun trivia time: Gap was founded by Don and Doris Fisher because Don couldn't find a pair of jeans that fit him right (or one place that has a good selection of jeans). What’s a guy to do but start what-would-become a global emporium that covers all the casual American essentials, jeans included? Now, men with real thighs can find comfort in relaxed, athletic, or straight fits in different washes and sizes. There are skinny and slim, too.

In short: Get rid of your crusty pair, get new jeans at a discount, and help someone out. That’s a pretty good deal, we think.
