This is a great way to reincarnate denim! I remember traveling to a cotton/denim mill in Lubbock as part of my textiles degree. The dye baths were just incredibly toxic - you couldn't breath. Although I'm all for refashioning your denim to wear so you can avoid buying new jeans, sometimes that's just not possible. So instead - think about donating them to make home insulation. Blue Jeans Go Green donates insulation to Habitat for Humanity (click the logo for more info) Bonded Logic offers multiple green insulation products, including denim insulation.
One day when we build our tiny house on our property - I will have denim insulation! I may even leave some of it exposed as decor :-)
