Here’s the lowdown. While recycling clothing is nothing new, there’s a bunch of game-changing new tech on the scene which works to shred used fabric so it can be woven into a new high-quality thread. This recycled cotton, which is actually even stronger than the first batch, is blended with CmiA cotton (Cotton made in Africa, an aid initiative that works to improve living conditions of cotton farmers across Africa). Available in light-wash and mid-wash blue, and in six classic tapered and slim-fit styles, the recycled jeans not only look fresh to death, but each pair saves enough water to make over 3,000 cups of coffee. Just don’t drink them all at once.
