The COTTON FROM BLUE TO GREEN is an ONG that colects used denim and give it “new life” by converting it tUltraTouch Natural Cotton Fiber Insulation. The insulation is then provided to communities in need to assist with building efforts. UltraTouch is composed of 85% recycled cotton fibers and is an environmentally safe, non-itch insulation without carcinogenic warnings or chemical irritants. It provides exceptional thermal performance and acoustically provides 30% better sound absorption than traditional fiberglass insulation. In addition, it is one of the only insulating products that contains an active mold/mildew inhibitor. First created in 2006, they had a total of 14,566 pieces of denim collected nationwide.
