RECYCLE YOUR OLD JEANS + TAKE $10 OFF YOUR NEW FAVORITE PAIR (IMPORTANT UPDATE)

BRING IN YOUR OLD PAIR OF JEANS TO RECYCLE

GET $10 OFF

A NEW PAIR

Blue Jeans Go Green™ is a trademark of Cotton Incorporated. 

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

We were so inspired by your participation in our jeans recycling event for Earth Day that we decided to keep it going! Read on for more info on our partnership with Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green program and set aside your old jeans (any brand, any color, any style) to recycle the next time you come into AE. We’ll still give you $10 off your next pair of new AE jeans!

With Earth Day coming up this month, now is a great time to take a step back and look at your relationship with the environment around you. What do you do in your daily life to reduce your carbon footprint? How do all the little things add up to make a big impact? You’ve already given up plastic straws, you ALWAYS have a reusable shopping bag, but what else can you do?

Here’s an easy one… get rid of your old jeans. Seriously. Grab that pair that’s been taking up precious closet space for years. You know the ones – they don’t fit quite right or they’re leftover from a DIY gone wrong or they ripped in the wrong place and you just never got around to fixing them. Whatever they are, wherever you got them from, we want them. We’ll even give you $10 off a pair of brand new AE jeans just for pitching in, PLUS, we’ll plant a tree* to help with the wildfire devastation in California.

Just bring your old jeans (they don’t have to be AE, we’ll take any brand!) to your local AE store and we’ll recycle them in partnership with Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ program to be used as housing insulation. Since denim is made mostly from cotton, a sustainable fiber, it can be broken down to its natural state and recycled. This means the all those old jeans can be diverted from landfills and upcycled into natural cotton fiber insulation.  Each year a portion of insulation from Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ program is distributed for building efforts to communities across the country.

We started partnering with Cotton in 2008 and since then, we’ve been able to recycle over half a million pairs of jeans.

THAT’S MORE THAN 500,000 JEANS THAT DIDN’T END UP IN A LANDFILL.

Here’s how it works:

STEP 1

BRING IN AN OLD PAIR OF JEANS (ANY BRAND)

STEP 2

GET $10 OFF A NEW PAIR OF JEANS!

STEP 3

YOUR OLD JEANS WILL BE TURNED INTO HOUSING INSULATION.

That’s it. Easy, right? A tree gets planted, your old jeans stay out of a landfill and help build homes for those in need, and you get $10 off your new favorite pair.

*Up to 25,000 trees

  1. Lindsey

    Love this! When will this promotion end? Also, if I literally just bought jeans online, can I take these jeans to my local AE and still get $10 off/credited?

    1. American Eagle

      Hi Lindsey – this offer is running for the entire month of April (through 4.30). As for the jeans, you can bring in absolutely any pair, old or new. Just know that the coupon is limited to one per customer.

  2. Cheyenne Miller

    Hi! Just have a question. Could you bring in multiple pairs of jeans for recycling? I realize that you receive only one coupon (which is super amazing that you’re doing in the first place!), I just have quite a few pairs of jeans that I plan to part with, and it would be nice if they went through recycling rather than through a landfill. Thanks so much!

    1. American Eagle

      Hey Cheyenne – the $10 coupon is limited to one per customer, but there is no limit on how many pairs of denim you can bring in. We encourage our customers to bring in as many pairs as they’d like – any brand!
