A good pair of denim can empower anybody, whether you’re going to the grocery store or going on a (COVID friendly) date. While the price of these sustainable jeans usually cost more than the traditional fast fashion brand jeans, what you get in return by purchasing these are far greater than the traditional brands could ever give you. Think of how long a good pair of sustainable denim will last you AND how the people making your jeans are being paid fairly. Here are our 7 pairs of jeans we love from sustainable and ethical brands to make you feel ready to go about your day!
