Becker County 4-H partnered with the Vanity Store to help "Change the World: One Pair of Jeans at a Time."
Denim jeans and other apparel were collected and will be recycled to make Ultra Touch Natural Cotton Fiber Insulation. It takes 500 pairs of jeans to make enough insulation for one home.
This local effort will be combined with other Vanity Stores with a corporate goal of collecting 100,000 pairs of jeans. This would produce 332,000 pounds of insulation, enough for 200 houses.
