Crafted using denim made from 100 percent organic cotton grown in the United States, Del Forte Denim's collection for women includes jeans, jackets, shorts and a mini-skirt. "Project Rejeaneration" offers discounts to consumers who recycle their old Del Forte togs. $165 to $210

Rawganique

From dungarees to low-rise, Rawganique offers 10 styles of unisex jeans made from certified-organic cotton and hemp. All are European made in factories using fair labor practices. $55 to $100 for petite through plus sizes.

The new "Levi's Eco" line includes some of the company's most popular styles made with all-or almost all-organic cotton. Other green components include recycled buttons, rivets and zippers.
