Student Council is asking for your help in reducing the amount of denim in our landfill. The denim is sent away free of charge to be turned into house insulation. We are holding a collection drive through “Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green”TM program.
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!
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.
Please send your unwanted denim with any Stanley County Student, drop it off at the High School office, or call 223-7743 and we will gladly arrange for it to be picked up. Drop off deadline is December 17, 2020.
