LEVI’S DENIM BUYBACK PROGRAM

LEVI’S DENIM BUYBACK PROGRAM

Perhaps some of the most coveted items for fashion lovers and collectors are vintage Levi’s. I myself have tried to get in on the action by scouring thrift stores for old Levi’s jeans, but they are hard to find.

For example, synthetic fibres like polyester and nylon are non-biodegradable and produces a ton of greenhouse gas emissions.

I know I had to educate myself on these things because I made a lot of assumptions as to what could be considered eco-friendly, but they ended up not being so great. Now that I’m aware of these things, I can make more informed choices the next time I go shopping.
