JEANS, JEANS, JEANS.

I never knew. Or, I feel like I've always subconsciously known that jeans weren't the best clothing item, but I never really thought about it because THEY'RE EVERYWHERE.

This link will provide the more insight than I can, but I'll give you a brief overview.

The most apparent problem is the dye within the jeans. It's turning beautiful, natural rivers into blue nightmares as well as polluting the farmland along the banks.

Brief solution:
Look into a brand before you purchase.
Only wash them when necessary; it is not unsanitary to wear them more than once between cycles!

Welcome.

I'm beginning a project on the
sustainability of the fashion industry.
Or something like that.
It's a broad topic; there are several different directions in which I could go. I created this blog to
1.) Collect all of my thoughts & findings in one place
2.)To share my findings with anyone interested. Maybe I can influence some of your shopping decisions? :P
