Give Old Denim New Purpose

MOM’s Denim Drop-Off starts today till May 27th!

  • Accepted items: All types of denim including colored, embellished, and printed; all articles are included as well – pants, jackets, shirts, skirts, etc.
  • Best practices for recycling: Please only bring clean, dry denim for recycling. Stores like Madewell, H&M, and Levi’s often provide year round denim recycling.
  • What happens to the waste: Blue Jeans Go Green™ recycles all denim into UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation and distributes it to charitable organizations for use in community housing projects.
  • Environmental Value: Recycling your denim helps keep textile waste out of landfills – 1,600 pairs of jeans diverts one ton of waste from landfills! Repurposing denim also help decrease greenhouse gases (GHG), volatile organic compounds (VOC), and chemicals used when manufacturing new textiles
