Introducing Our New Recycled Denim Scarf
Posted on May 28 2015
Do you know that it takes about 1,500 gallons of water to produce the cotton used in a single pair of jeans? According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, cotton is a considerably challenging crop to grow because it requires an immense amount of water and is often grown in countries with water shortages.
Mayan Hands' commitment to environmental sustainability led us to an exciting new recycled yarn made from pre-consumer denim waste and 100% all natural cotton. Scraps of denim are shredded, combined with undyed cotton and spun into this unique yarn. The process saves thousands of gallons of water, decreases the amount of waste that goes into landfills and eliminates the use of toxic chemicals.
Our artisan partners are using this eco-friendly yarn to weave our beautiful Recycled Denim Scarves which scarves have finally made their way to our shelves in the U.S. We are excited to offer them to you! A single scarf saves 450 gallons of water. Best of all, by wearing them you can look good while doing good for the planet we all inhabit and share.
