Eco Jeans: Denim for Organic Jeans that Fit

Organic cotton jeans for you and the environment.

| January/February 2007

  • The Juniper Jacket from Del Forte Denim has moxie without the pesticides.
  • Levi’s exclusive Capital E line is stylish in organic cotton.
  • Get a comfy, relaxed fit in an all-natural, organic-cotton jean from Rawganique.

It takes about two-thirds of a pound of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides to make a single pair of jeans, according to the Sustainable Cotton Project. Before you swear off denim, button up this: Eco-minded fashion designers are sewing sustainable jeans and jackets ranging from classic to ultra-hip.
