During the apparel industry’s dramatic push for increased sustainability and conscious manufacturing practices, companies like Levi’s have helped to lead the charge. It’s no secret that denim production has become synonymous with the genre’s new, cutting-edge principles, acting as a profound basis for change. As such, Levi’s has been working in tandem with Re:Newcell, the creators of Circulose, to bring buyers the industry’s most sustainable denim.

As you might expect, the company’s partnership with Re:Newcell has been fruitful, resulting in the creation of its most sustainable item, the Recycled Denim 502 jean. Each pair is crafted from organic cotton and Circulose, which utilizes a unique, 20% recycled denim/20% sustainably-sourced viscose blend (collected from previously-used jeans) to create an entirely circular manufacturing process. Since a large portion of the 502 jean is made from recycled materials, the garment’s water, chemical, and CO2 footprints have been drastically reduced, while still providing wearers with the same comfort, aesthetic, and durability that they’ve come to expect from the transcendental denim brand. Head to the jean maker’s website, where the Recycled Denim 502 is currently available for $148, to learn more about its unique breakthrough.
