Why Buy Organic Jeans?

You're probably not eating denim for dinner, so why should you care if your jeans are organic? There's actually a very good reason to buy jeans made from organic cotton. While cotton only represents about 3 percent of the world's crop production, conventionally grown cotton is responsible for an estimated 25 percent of the world's insecticide use and 12 percent of its pesticides. That means it has a highly negative impact on the environment and can contaminate water sources. Organic cotton, on the other hand, is farmed without the use of insecticides and other chemicals. Thankfully, there are a ton of premium denim brands cropping up that use organic cotton in their clothes. Here's a look at some of the most stylishly responsible brands.

Del Forte Denim
A portion of sales from these 100 percent organic cotton jeans, designed by Tierra Del Forte, go to support the Sustainable Cotton Project. To list a list of boutiques that carry Del Forte, click here.

Edun Apparel

This socially responsible clothing brand is a collaboration between U2 frontman Bono, his wife, Ali Hewson, and fashion designer Rogan Gregory.

The cut of the loomstate one looks the best to me. The others aren't attractive.

I'll be the first to say that I love a good pair of jeans but I'm not too thrilled about those above, maybe the black ones cause I think they'de look better on me, I'm not all whacky shaped like that chick*
