Sustainable Denim: What makes it different and why does it matter?
Denim is a versatile and durable fabric that has been a fashion staple for decades. However, traditional denim production can be highly polluting and harmful to the environment. For this reason, at Capitán Denim, we focus on producing sustainable denim using materials and processes that are friendly to the environment. But what makes sustainable denim different and why is it important?
What makes sustainable denim different?
Sustainable denim is different from traditional denim production in several ways:
At Captain Denim, we use sustainable materials to produce our jeans. We use organic cotton, which is grown without the use of environmentally harmful chemical pesticides and fertilizers. We also use recycled materials, like recycled polyester, to reduce our carbon footprint. Discover our eco collection here and our certificates here .
Conventional denim production involves the use of large amounts of water and environmentally harmful chemicals. At Capitán Denim, we work with our own Greensight technology which, in addition to saving up to 90% of water, reduces our carbon footprint and minimizes the impact on the environment. We use techniques like low-temperature washing and sustainable processes like lasers to minimize our carbon footprint.
Ethics in production
At Capitan Denim, we focus on producing denim ethically and fairly. We work with local suppliers that comply with labor and human rights standards. We also make sure our workers receive fair wages and safe working conditions.
