Levi Strauss & Co is one of, if not the most sustainable jeans brand in the World. Levi is pioneering practices to reduce the use of water, energy, harmful chemicals and other harmful things in the denim apparel industry. In doing so they take their partner suppliers along with this mission to ensure that they comply with best practices. All their suppliers must meet their terms of engagement rules be they denim fabric manufacturers or jeans makers before they can become a supplier. Such terms of engagement cover child labour rules, working hours and conditions, health and safety and environment best practices. Levi insists on consistent quality and so by making their products last longer this also contributes to reduced climate contamination. With their Waste<Less™, Water<Less™ and Wellthread™ collections, Levi's are making a considered effort to provide sustainable products to the market.
