very excited to report that the denim disco was a smashing success! we collected over 100 pairs of denim which will benefit blue jeans go green. since hurricane katrina (nearly ten years ago), the organization has been recycling denim to create insulation for habitat for humanity homes. what happens to the collected denim? the jeans will be shipped to a facility in arizona where the hardware will be removed and the denim will be stripped back to its original cotton fiber state. it will then be put into an oven and cut/sized. in about three weeks, the denim will be delivered to a place of need. you can find out more about the process here.
thank you to everyone who came out and supported us. we're hoping to plan another denim disco in the future, utilizing new collaborative partners. and we're working with von bar on another event in the coming months.
check out our playlist (made by dj keith sweaty). stay tuned for future cultureisland events! *note we're working to get the video up as well but having some technical difficulties*
