Local Girl Scouts plan denim drive

Denim

A new wrinkle, connected to some old wrinkles, is being added to the Murphy Clean & Green recycling event, scheduled for Oct. 10, reported Candy McQuiston, Customer Service Manager for the city of Murphy.

“Those old wrinkled jeans that no one wears and just take up space in the closet can now serve a real purpose,” she said. “Local Girl Scouts will take any and all denim articles of clothing and, through a national program, convert the denim into insulation for homes. The project is being led by Ashley Rodda, a local Girl Scout working toward a Gold Award.”

Called the Blue Jeans Go Green denim recycling program, the Girl Scouts, will set up a collection point at the Oct. 10 Murphy Clean & Green event and will also have a similar collection booth at the Murphy Maize Days festival, set for Saturday, Sept. 26. Both events occur at the Murphy Municipal Complex, 206 North Murphy Road.
