JOPLIN, MO. --- The Northpark Mall is still hosting its "Lose Your Blues" event. The community has generously responded to donating their old denim but the mall has yet to reach its goal of collecting 500 pairs. Bins have been placed in the mall for you to drop off your old pair of blue jeans.

The jeans will then be recycled to the "Blue Jeans Go Green" program. To date, the recycling program has diverted more than 600 tons of waste out of landfills and generated approximately 2 million square feet of UltraTouch Denim Insulation to assist with building efforts in communities in need.

One bin is located by Old Navy and another bin is located in the food court. You can drop off your old denim until August 31st.
