Ecouterre published an eye-opening article recently regarding one of our own favorite wardrobe staples: skinny jeans. But the eco-focused website didn’t rave about how versatile they are or how many printed options are available for spring. They accused skinny jeans of nearly wrecking America’s currency system:
In the late 1800s, when a single currency system was established, the bills were sustainably produced from waste fabric from the fashion industry. That’s right: George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were printed on fibers processed from unwanted materials, entirely compiled from recycled scraps. But a recent article published over at the Washington Post last month sheds light on how the fashion world’s love of figure-hugging jeans since the ’90’s has wreaked havoc on currency production, tainting the waste scraps with spandex and rendering them useless.
Imagine if your dollar bills suddenly came with a bit of stretch!
