Build Your Own Eco Wardrobe
Last week we helped you take the first step toward incorporating environmentally friendly pieces into your everyday ensembles with options for the knit. Today we offer new ideas for yet another staple, your jeans. Let’s start first with some facts: Denim jeans are typically made of 100 percent cotton, which, to oversimplify, requires a lot of chemicals to produce. Then that cotton is dyed with synthetic indigo coloring. It turns out, however, despite some fits and starts, that there are several socially conscious options reemerging from which to choose. Some of the most recognized brands in denim are finding new ways to make their products green—using natural dyes, recycled zippers, and organic fabrics—without sacrificing style.
In the slideshow above are a few of our favorite, and why we love them
