Denim that’s ethically made and size-inclusive? We’re all about it!
Unfortunately, in the real (and sometimes cruel) world, the right jeans can be hard to find without holding your breath and hoping your credit card doesn’t max out on that one purchase.
Lucky for us, these 5 denim brands offer the best of both worlds: helping you look great and the Earth feel great.
Affordable and Eco-Friendly: Warp + Weft
Warp + Weft is a relatively new brand that fits all three categories: eco-friendly, size-inclusive, and affordable. Producing each pair of jeans uses only 6 gallons of water and 1KWH of energy. That’s no small feat for any denim company. They have every body covered with regular sizes 00-24 and petites in 00-14.
The best part? Every single pair is UNDER $100. Yup, you read that right.
Denim That Invests in Women: Able
With something as individual as denim fit, it can be hard to find the perfect pair - especially shopping online. Finally, a brand that understands the struggle of ordering online. That’s why Able offers unlimited, free exchanges until you find the pair that fits your body best.
The best part? Able is committed to ending generational poverty, manufacturing in the low-income communities they wish to impact and employing female artisans around the world in a collective effort to end charity dependency. Women’s empowerment initiatives AND less commute time? We dig it.
High Quality Cotton that Gives Back: Mott & Bow
Mott + Bow is a premium label with a practical price tag. What makes them “premium”? Fabric sourcing from well-respected denim mills in Turkey and Italy. This higher quality cotton looks and performs better on you, unlike cheaper denim that doesn’t bounce back after wear. We like to think of their jeans like a fine bottle of wine that only improves with age.
The best part? They give to charity and to you. When you donate your old jeans to The Bowery Mission, which serves the hungry and homeless in NYC, Mott + Bow contributes $20 towards your next purchase.
Eco-Conscious, Not Self-Conscious: Boyish Jeans
Boyish is a proud partner of 1% for the Planet and works to preserve our beautiful Earth by donating 1% of their profits to the organization. Not to mention, they only work with sustainable fabrics and guarantee a 100% cruelty-free environment in the denim-making process.
The best part? You won’t have to refinance your mortgage for a well-fitting pair of vintage-esque jeans. Boyish denim is centered on old-school silhouettes with an effortless cool girl flare at a reasonable price.
Breaking Barriers One Pair at a Time: Good American
Denim made to fit you, not the other way around. Every woman deserves to feel great in her denim, at any size. Good American gets that and is doing something about it - in some really cute styles. Wherever you shop GA in stores, you’ll find all their sizes in one place: no size separation or shaming allowed. Plus, they just launched a new denim line for moms-to-be!
The best part? In addition to their super inclusive size range, this brand donates a portion of profits from every product sold to Step Up, an organization that empowers girls from under-resourced communities.
