Nothing is more stylish than environmentally friendly fashion. And over the year, sustainable denim has become a must-do for most denim lovers. They can be recycled jeans that you buy in thrift stores, or brand new jeans made of recycled denim. Or jeans that have been produced with no chemicals, waterless, and with organic cotton.
We searched on the internet and in stores for what’s new in sustainable denim right now – and found some amazing stuff. Not so long ago you were able to spot sustainable jeans from far. The washes were a dead giveaway. Not anymore. If you look at our roundup below, you won’t be able to tell the difference between regular and sustainable washes anymore.
So that’s amazing. Now you can wear your jeans in the wash that you absolutely love AND be spot-on trendy and environmentally friendly at the same time.
And just one last advice: How can I find sustainable denim when shopping?” – This is THE question our readers have been asking us over and over again:
“Sustainability certifications: Look for recognized certifications such as GOTS organic, which means the whole supply chain is organic, not just the picking of the cotton, Oeko-Tex, which indicates the fabric doesn’t have unsafe levels of any chemicals, and Climate Neutral, which indicates the offset and reduce all of greenhouse gas emissions.”
This said – we hope you find your next favorite jeans below and….happy Shopping!
