Rock These Sustainable Women’s Jeans on Earth Day

LESS THAN ONE WEEK AWAY! Join Sourcing Journal & industry leaders at our SOURCING SUMMIT NY on October 19 to discuss the most pressing issues of the day. Your business cannot afford to miss this!

While Earth Day on April 22 is normally a good time to spend outside honoring the joys of the natural world, social distancing somewhat prevents that this year.

But women can show their Earth Day pride differently by supporting brands that follow ethical standards and honor the community around them.

From jeans made with recycled fibers, to others operating a transparent supply chain, here’s a look at 11 denim brands that can help “green” your closet.

Able’s Andrea High-Rise Super Stretch

Nashville-based sustainable denim brand Able is committed to providing fair and transparent wages to its workers. Its employees’ wages are prominently listed on the brand’s homepage to promote transparency and help shoppers feel good about the clothes they purchase.
