How Arielle and Bailey Are Recycling Their Cotton Closet Staples For Earth Day

Thank you to our friends at Cotton for partnering with us on this story.

Earth Day is the perfect occasion to renew our dedication to environmentally friendly living. From lifestyle choices to recycling old clothing, there are countless ways to reduce our impact and care for the planet.

One of our favorite tactics is shopping for sustainable pieces made of natural fibers, like cotton. That's why we partnered with Cotton to create The Cotton Shop, a special curated collection of strong, classic, and iconic cotton products from the SN collection and Brands We Love.

Cotton is the go-to fabric here at Something Navy because it’s versatile, effortlessly stylish, and easy to wear. But that’s not all: cotton is also a natural fiber grown from the earth, so it’s biodegradable and easy to recycle. Talk about clothing that looks chic and protects our 🌎 !  

In honor of Earth Day, Arielle and Bailey are cleaning out their closets and deciding which denim pieces they should recycle with Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ program. Authentic denim is made from cotton, and through this recycling endeavor, old denim is able to be transformed to become something new.

First, zippers and hardware are removed and the denim is returned to its original cotton fiber state. Then, the fiber is recycled into an entirely new product, like denim insulation, which for the last 15 years the Blue Jeans Go Green™ program has distributed to organizations like Habitat for Humanity. See what we mean? Your much-loved old denim pieces can have an entirely new life!

Watch the full video here to see how Arielle and Bailey are responsibly cleaning out their closets. Head to The Cotton Shop to pick up a new cotton staple of your own, and learn how to recycle denim through Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ program right this way!
