What

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.

Why

Every year nearly 16 million tons of textile waste are sent to landfills and forgotten.
