Blue Jeans Go Green™
Denim Recycling Drive - Results
OUR LOCAL DRIVE ENDED MAY 31, 2021
Across the globe, textiles enter landfills at the rate of an entire garbage truck every second,
but by working together we made a difference.
In the month of May 2021, between participating Fairport schools,
local drop boxes, and our collection box at the farmer's market,
Color Fairport Green collected a total
of 349 items weighing 410 pounds!
CFG would like to extend special thanks
to these members of our community who stepped up
in partnership with us to make a difference and divert waste:
~ Perinton Community Center ~ RV&E Bike & Skate ~ Gold's Gym ~
~ The Box Factory ~ Brighton Pathways to Health ~ Fairport Farmer's Market ~

You with the old jeans that were going to be thrown out
The Blue Jeans Go Green™ program collects denim (made from cotton) so that it can be recycled back to its natural fiber state and transformed into something new.
Color Fairport Green is coordinating a denim recycling drive in collaboration with the Blue Jeans Go Green™ program during the entire month of May 2021.
Every year nearly 16 million tons of textile waste are sent to landfills and forgotten.
