Cotton's Blue Jeans Go Green | Zappos for Good

Zappos for Good is collaborating with Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ program to collect denim made from cotton, which can be recycled to create something new.

42,218 Pieces of Denim
Collected in 2021

72.5 Tons of Waste Diverted

290,154 Square Feet of UltraTouch™
Denim Insulation Manufactured Since 2019

Denim can be broken down to its natural state and transformed.

Being mostly made from cotton, a sustainable fiber, denim can be converted to natural cotton fiber insulation that is used in building efforts around the country. By diverting denim away from landfills, where it would otherwise join the millions of pounds of textiles thrown out every year, Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ program makes the world a little greener.

Recycle, repurpose, and repeat!

Any type of denim apparel may be recycled – jeans, jackets, shirts, skirts, and more. It can be colored, embellished and/or printed. The denim can also be in any condition – ripped, stained and even scraps. As long as it is at least 90% cotton with all paper and plastic removed, Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ program is able to repurpose the denim and put it to good use!
