The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, opening August 6th, reunites on screen the four best friends audiences fell in love with three years ago. Based on the Ann Brashares novels about four young women who share an unbreakable bond through the unpredictable events of their lives – and also share a vintage pair of jeans as a way of keeping in touch – the new story catches up with them in the summer following their first year of college.
Like the characters in the Sisterhood saga, women and blue jeans have long traveled the scenic route together; weathering rebellion, cultivating the designer jean craze and elevating the truly simple concept of denim jeans to a fashion essential.
Now, Cotton Incorporated has joined forces with G by GUESS and Warner Bros. Pictures to further the travels of denim. Beginning on July 24th, G by GUESS will host the COTTON. FROM BLUE TO GREEN.® denim drive in all 42 stores across the nation. The "denim drive" is a call to action to donate old denim and give it "new life" by converting it into UltraTouch natural cotton fiber insulation. Once the denim is collected and converted into natural cotton fiber insulation, it will be contributed to help aid in building efforts for communities in need.
During this key back-to-school timeframe G by GUESS is offering consumers a $10 discount on all jeans purchases. As a bonus, during the COTTON. FROM BLUE TO GREEN.® denim drive promotion, G by GUESS will offer an additional $10 discount which will be applied to purchases of $50 or more for those who donate denim.
"Cotton Incorporated is excited to be working with G by GUESS and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2," states Paula G. Rosario, Vice President, Consumer Marketing - Strategic Alliances, Cotton Incorporated. "This program provides a way for fans of this hugely popular book and movie series to actively get involved by donating their ‘traveling' pants to help people who are in great need of housing."
Once the denim is donated, Allan Company (allancompany.com.) will bale the garments then JBM Fibers ( jbmfibers.com) will process the denim to its original state, cotton. Bonded Logic, Inc. (bondedlogic.com), a leader in natural fiber insulation, will convert the denim into UltraTouch Natural Cotton Fiber Insulation.
