3 eco-friendly denim jackets you need to own. Who doesn’t love a denim jacket? Due to its versatility and wearability, denim jackets are any woman’s wardrobe must-have.
Unfortunately, denim is a rather environmentally-impactful textile, from the copious amounts of water used to grow the cotton, dye the fabric and process the denim to the amount of disregarded denim and fabric waste.
The mass appeal of denim has turned into a problem for the Earth and the people who produce it. Look at one river delta in China, dyed blue from nearby denim factories. Or consider the problem of sandblasting jeans to get that on-trend faded look – an act that is extremely hazardous to worker’s health and well-being.
But, fortunately, there are a lot of sustainable fashion brands out there who are committed to bringing you denim that won’t impact the earth.
Here are three denim jackets that have been sustainably produced so you can still look stylish while caring for the environment.
