Levi's recently completed a charity drive with the 49ers, collecting clothes over a 2 week period. Levi's then used the denim collected to create a literal Field of Jeans – covering the field at Levi's Stadium with 18,000+ pairs of jeans, all of which will be donated to Goodwill locations in the Bay Area, keeping more than 12 tons of textiles out of landfills.

  • The Field of Jeans creation took 16 hours to create and used more than 18,850 pairs of jeans.

  • The jeans on the field outweigh the classic San Francisco Trolley cars by 9,000 lbs.
  • Approximately 171,000 pounds of CO2 emissions from landfill were avoided, which is equivalent to the emissions generated from 36 round trips by car from San Francisco to New York.
