OUR MISSION: RECYCLE DENIM TO HELP COMMUNITIES IN NEED

homes in row

Your old jeans have a story.  You gave them life.  And in return, they gave you years of comfort and experience.  Don't let their story end.  Give your old denim to the Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program and help insulate communities in need across the U.S.  All denim collected through the program is recycled into UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation, and a portion of it, up to approximately 250,000 square feet, will be distributed to help communities in need each year.*

*Insulation quantities related to the Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program may be adjusted each year.
 

HOW BLUE JEANS GO GREEN

Once harvested, cotton is blended, cleaned and straightened into strands called sliver. Spinning turns the sliver into yarn, which is then packaged and ready for a weaving mill.

Large rolls of finished denim fabric are shipped to garment manufacturers, and assorted denim garments are created for sale at retail.

Once denim is given to Blue Jeans Go Green™, the recycling process begins by removing zippers, buttons and hardware. The denim is then returned to its natural, original fiber state: cotton.

Sheets of UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation are cut to size and prepared to be shipped to homes in need and other community-based civic buildings.
