Customers and Students Come Together for Their Communities

During the collaboration with students and faculty at esteemed colleges and universities, the denim recycling program is making true progress and change for communities all over the United States. The Blue Jeans Go Green denim recycling drive was created to inspire people to help each other as well as build up communities with donated materials. These donated materials come from customers of J. Crew and Madewell, elementary school students, high school students, and college students. Their contributions made a difference because of when J.Crew Brands Extend Partnership with Blue Jeans Go Green.

The drive was created by Cotton Incorporated, a U.S. organization funded by cotton farmers and devotees. One of the universities that helped contribute to Cotton Incorporated’s denim recycling drive was Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois. Their program called Apparel Merchandise Design Association (AMDA) surpassed their goal of collecting 500 pieces of denim by Halloween. “AMDA has taken great strides to get the school and community involved and we have been thrilled with all their efforts,” said Andrea Samber, Co-Director, Strategic Alliances at Cotton Incorporated.
