Project JUST Launches a Consumer Guide to Buying the Best Denim

Where are fashion’s priorities? How sustainability will fare post pandemic is just one of many open questions. Join SJ on July 15 at 11 am for a webinar on how the crisis will affect future sourcing decisions and how to better measure progress.

Project JUST, the ethical fashion organization, launched JUST Approved, a series of monthly guides to help consumers find the best brands to shop; the first category is denim.

Denim brands will be evaluated according to Project JUST’s eight research categories: size and business model, transparency, labor conditions, environment, intention, community, management and innovation. Denim-specific categories like sandblasting, chemical dyes and water consumption will also be examined. Users are invited to submit brands for consideration, which the Project JUST team and a committee of industry experts will evaluate.

Natalie Grillon, co-founder of Project JUST, commented on starting with denim, “First, we’ve had a lot of demand from our readers for guidance on denim. Second, we’ve seen a lot of innovation among old and new denim brands that we felt made it an interesting category to begin with while also being a challenging category with the sustainability and labor issues linked to production.”

She added that denim is something people of all ages wear, making it a good place to start.
