There are a ton of factors involved in purchasing a pair of high-quality jeans, and if you're reading this, you're likely discerning enough to care about several of them. One of these factors that comes into play every now and again is the idea of environmental responsibility. While it can be tough to figure out how much of an impact your jeans make on the environment, there are certain things to look for to help ensure that your carbon footprint stays tiny. Here are three ways all American made jeans by All USA Clothing help protect the environment.
Reduce, reuse, and recycle has been the mantra of environmental activists for years, and buying a high-quality set of jeans helps you achieve the first two of these three goals. American jeans are known for their quality, more so than those cheaply made in third-world countries, which allows a wearer of such pants to first and foremost reduce their consumption of denim, since your American jeans will doubtlessly last longer than a set of mall jeans. You can also reuse your jeans in a way by taking them to a repair shop when they start to get ratty. It makes more sense to repair high-quality American jeans than some cheap, disposable jeans much like you'd be better off getting a new transmission for a three year old Mercedes rather than a 1994 Civic.
Lower Factory Emissions
The US is one of the best countries in the world in terms of air quality, and factories play a large role in this fact. Other countries, like China, for example, have far worse air quality since many factories contribute to greater emissions. Since American factories are subject to more stringent air quality regulations than those in many other countries, patronizing an American denim manufacturer will support businesses that are doing their part to contribute less to poor air quality in your own backyard.
Reduced Travel Distance
Another factor that is rarely considered when picking out a pair of jeans is the geographic location of the manufacturer as opposed to the purchaser. This relates to your environmental impact because it simply takes more burned fuel to get your jeans from Japan than from two states over. By buying your jeans from an American company, you're cutting down on the distance your jeans have traveled to get to your closet, which cuts down on truck, boat, and plane mileage, which then cuts down on emissions.
