Do you have a pair of unsalvageable jeans lying around? Before you throw them away, check out Denim Therapy‘s jeans repair service first. Then, if those beloved old jeans are truly a lost cause, consider repurposing your jeans via this snazzy DIY craft: make your own denim bookmarks. Think of it as a page corner cozy. Or not. It’s your call. This tutorial shows you how to make heart-shaped denim bookmarks—a cool last-minute Valentine’s Day gift—to display your enduring love for your former jeans.
Swedish denim maestros Nudie Jeans are setting a strong example today after being awarded the Bra Milj?val, AKA Good Environmental Choice award for their second hand denim collection. They operate in a system where customers who leave old jeans on the table when buying new ones, receive a discount. That old denim is then re-used for future products. Brilliant, isn’t it?
Nudie’s Comments? “We at Nudie know it?s possible to work with fashion and good quality while aiming towards more sustainable consumption. In addition, we want to make it easier for consumers to extend the life of their garments.”
Congratulations, Nudie! May many companies follow in your steps.
