The Problem

Around 450,000,000 pieces of denim end up in landfills each year. The purpose of 2nd Day Denim is to help reduce this number and upcycle the denim in a more eco friendly way.

Our Plan

2nd Day Denim will divert denim pieces from my community that would otherwise go to our landfills. Collecting denim will have a huge environmental impact, by up-cycling and producing environmentally safe insulation to many non-profit affiliates like Habitat of Humanity. I am partnering with Blue Jeans Go Green/Cotton Inc. to start a campaign in my area, which will include a denim drive collecting any denim products. My goal is to collect 1,000 pounds of denim over a 6 month period which is enough pieces to insulate an entire house.
