….because all denim started with Levi Strauss 🙂


We, the denim lovers, denim enthusiasts, denim obsessed and so on, should do our part to keep the our planet clean.

And the best way – besides tossing those plastic shopping bags – is to go for a pair of sustainable jeans. Not only is it the most necessary step when it comes to environmental preservation, but nowadays it has also become very “fashionable” to shop sustainable.

We have rounded up some of the best options out there – and we promise, you won’t even be able to tell the difference by just looking at the jeans. Sustainable washing and dyeing effects have become so sophisticated over the last few years that there’s really no visual or tactile reason for not going there. No more: “…but the wash is so – meh… ” 🙁 Very much on the contrary, as you will see in our round-up below. And that also applies to the price-point. Whereas a couple of years ago, sustainable jeans used to be pretty pricey, nowadays they have become totally accessible and very reasonably priced – again – as shown below:-)
