Everlane Slim Fit Jean

The fashion industry is among the most polluting in the world, but the making of denim—a $60 billion global business—is extra terrible for the environment because of how much it pollutes the water. On average, it can take up to 10,000 liters of water to make a single pair of jeans, with a majority of the untreated waste water, full of dyes and other chemicals, being released back into rivers and oceans. But online clothing retailer Everlane, known for their transparency in pricing and manufacturing processes, is on a quest to make the world’s most sustainable denim. Their Slim Fit Jean offers a substantial, high-quality denim feel at an affordable price. Each pair is sustainably made from premium 11oz Japanese denim, with a touch of stretch for comfort. The factory where Everlane makes these jeans uses renewable solar energy and harvests rainwater. It also recycles 98% of the water used to make the denim, with huge reverse osmosis machines that filter out the chemical-pollutants. And the leftover by-product from the filtering is then combined with cement to create bricks that are used to build homes for people in need.
