Ecofriendly apparel brand Dirtball to debut 'Green' jeans

Eco-friendly, made-in-the-U.S.A. apparel brand Dirtball will launch “The Green Jean”. The Green Jean is made from cotton and recycled water bottles which have been repurposed to create high-quality cotton/polyester denim. Each pair contains between 8 to 10 water bottles and all the materials are 100% made in the U.S.A.

Dirtball Founder, Joe Fox, has sought manufacturing funds for the Green Jean on Kickstarter, the best of the best in crowdfunding platforms. In order to bring these new eco-friendly jeans to the public, Fox must raise $40,000 from backers and early adopters.

“Recycling pre-consumer cotton and water bottles, as Dirtball does, helps keep over five billion pounds of waste from going into U.S. landfills each year,” says Joe Fox, Founder and President of Dirtball. “If Dirtball can save three billion plastic bottles from the landfills, it will be equivalent to saving over half a million barrels of oil, and eliminating 400,000 tons of harmful air emissions which contribute to acid rain, global warming and smog.”

Each and every one of Dirtball’s American-made apparel products are created utilizing only recycled materials and by producing their products entirely in the United States, they employ American workers while reducing carbon emissions due to shorter shipping distances. The apparel brand has an entire selection of recycled cotton/polyester U.S. made gear for men including t-shirts, polos, shorts, hats, hooded sweatshirts, socks, chinos and now The Green Jean.

About Dirtball

Founded in 2008 by Joe Fox, race car driver, entrepreneur and North Carolina native, Dirtball constructs eco-friendly apparel and gear for active individuals – cutting across age and gender lines. Dirtball only uses recycled materials in their products and all products are designed and produced in the United States the majority within a 250 mile radius of headquarters. Not only does the recycled content add to the ecological-friendliness of the company, but the U.S.-based manufacturing arm adds to the local economy and shortens shipping distances, thereby reducing Dirtball’s carbon footprint.
