Title Straight, flared or even as a rug, denim raises fashion to sustainable levels Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet UN News Media type Radio Duration/Length/Size 5'47" Country/Territory United States Date 19/07/18 Description When people talk about recycling, plastic bottles often come to mind — but what about that favourite old pair of jeans that have grown just a bit too tight?
According to Lori DiVito, recycling denim is a creative way to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Ms. DiVito was at UN Headquarters in New York this week managing a side exhibit booth for the Alliance for Responsible Denim, on the margins of the UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF).
She spoke with UN News’s Liz Scaffidi on how recycled denim plays a role in sustainable development.
