Creating Change with Cotton
Did you know? Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley participates in Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ program, which upcycles denim into UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation. This natural cotton fiber insulation (provided to Habitat through a generous grant) is what we use for our local building efforts.

About the Denim Recycling Drive
Give old denim new purpose. Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley is partnering with the Blue Jeans Go Green™ program to collect denim made from cotton (at least 90%).

What type of denim can be recycled?
You can contribute any type (any size) of denim apparel item – 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.

We just ask that the denim item(s) you’re recycling be high cotton content and contain at least 90% cotton.
