How To Reuse Old Denim Jeans

Textile waste is one of the biggest problems around the globe.

In fact, clothing and textile industry is the second largest polluter in the world, oil being the first.

In the United States alone, 11 million tons of textile waste is being produced yearly. Imagine, if each and every one of us would recycle and reuse garments. That’s going to be a lot of difference, isn’t it?

Our effort to repurpose clothing and textile might seem futile but it would be a huge impact when all our efforts are combined.
