Over the past few years more and more light has been shed on just how harsh the making of denim garments can be on our environment.

Shockingly, it can take up to 10,000 liters of water to create one single pair of jeans. And now, many brands have stepped up their systems are now producing denim in a more eco friendly manner, taking accountability and being more conscious of their eco footprint. Of course, we still have a long way to go in terms of sustainability in the fashion world, but if you’re looking to make little changes and think more sustainably, these brands are a great place to start. Not only do they create great fitting denim, but they’re not so harsh on our planet either.
