Eco-friendly jeans

 

© Del Forte
Even denim is getting in on the craze for all things eco and ethical, with labels from Lees and Levi's to Seven For All Mankind and Del Forte producing environmentally-friendly jeans.

Levi's 570 jeans, for example, are made in Hungary and certified Eko Sustainable Textiles by the Control Union (a global organization that inspects and certifies organic products).

Did you know?
- The average pair of jeans gets machine washed after it's been worn 3 times, and lasts for around 4 years.
- The average pair of jeans travels over 16,000 miles to get to your wardrobe.
- Production of jeans made in Europe causes less greenhouse gas emissions than standard jeans.
