OUR SUSTAINABLE STAND.
“We are the first generation to understand climate change and the last generation able to do something about it. What we wear exists in a wider conversation about what we believe in.”
- Lloyd Boolkin, Method of Denim
OUR CLOTHES AREN'T AS SUSTAINABLE AS WE WANT THEM TO BE, BUT WE ARE WORKING ON IT. LET US TELL YOU HOW.
Over 45 million tons of clothing makes its way into a landfill each year. There are estimates regarding denim production that, during its lifespan, over 15,000 liters of water will be used to grow the cotton needed to manufacture a single denim garment. Water scarcity, pollution, climate change, labor practices, as well as the purchasing and disposal of denim, is a topic that requires manufacturers to face that challenge head-on, so you can continue your love of denim and the world doesn’t pay immense costs for your passion.
Fashion is a distinctive part of our lives and we make daily decisions about our identity through those style choices. Method of Denim is part of a growing number of brands making a sustainable stand through the use of technology, supply chain management and under-production. We are at the forefront of change by only making the denim you order. No warehouse, only a workshop. We do not carry any stock that can sometimes lead to a lifetime of decomposing in a landfill.
In order to combat overproduction, we only create denim that has been pre-ordered. This means that you get a custom made garment and the environment is happier for it too.
Denim is one of the few natural fibers that look better with age, as well as being one of the most versatile style stale, our denim is designed to be your go-to, for years to come. We are here to make sure you get the most wear out of a piece that you have designed and love.
Because we all love keeping it fresh, we have created a Your Denim, Your Laundry section with tips and upkeep secrets on how to care for your denim.
Not everything we do will be organic or low impact but we are committed to continue evolving and finding solutions to reduce impact and excessive use of the world’s resources.
Our immediate goal is to design and manufacture made to order, high quality products that are made responsibly, with the highest regard for protecting our environment. Our collections will continue to pursue production improvements as we develop new technology and relationships with suppliers. Join us in our sustainable stand.
