Now they’re coming for your pants! Wearing BLUE JEANS creates huge carbon footprint: Study reveals wearing a pair just once is the equivalent to driving a car for 6.4 miles

Researchers say that jeans sold for the fast fashion market produce 11 times more C02 per wear than traditional alternatives

UK Daily Mail – April 5, 2024: Scientists from the Guangdong University of Technology analysed the life cycle of a pair of Levi’s jeans from growing the cotton to their eventual disposal. They found that some jeans were worn only seven times – earning them the classifiation of ‘fast fashion’ – and produced 11 times more CO2 than jeans wore more often. … The total carbon footprint, 48 per cent is caused by the washing, drying and ironing of jeans after purchase. … the production of the jeans and fibre, making up 70 per cent of the total emissions. The remaining emissions are largely created by the transportation of the jeans from factories to consumers, making up 21 per cent of total emissions. … 

Dr Ya Zhou, the study’s lead author says:’The humble wardrobe staple – a pair of jeans – has a significant impact on the environment.’ – ‘By second-hand trading, people can sell the unlike or unused clothes and make a profit.  ‘In China, the growing focus on environmental protection and sustainability among Chinese millennials and Generation Z is driving the growth of the second-hand trade industry.’


Washington Post – How to find the best, most sustainable jeans for your wardrobe – March 8, 2024: “Your jeans also add to the environmental footprint of the apparel industry, which is responsible for somewhere between 8 and 10 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and about 4 percent of solid waste in the United States alone. A slew of companies are redesigning jeans to lower their footprint, and a few of these models are now available in stores.”

UK Independent: ‘Climate change is hitting vulnerable Indonesian trans sex workers’ – Media claims ‘extreme weather linked to climate change’ is affecting transgender prostitutes’ ‘income’

UK Independent via Reuters – April 3, 2024: Joya Patiha, a 43-year-old Indonesian transgender woman, first started to notice that changing weather patterns in the mountain-ringed city of Bandung were affecting her income as a sex worker a decade ago. The rainy season was lasting longer across the West Java province, winds were stronger and in some particularly bad years Patiha lost up to 80% of her earnings. Trans women like Patiha are among the most affected by extreme weather linked to climate change, as well as suffering disproportionately when disasters strike. “No one is coming out during the longer rainy season,” said Patiha. “It is very hard to make money during that unpredictable weather.” … 

Indonesia is particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, and trans women, who tend to face more stigma and marginalisation than trans men or other LGBTQ+ Indonesians, are also among those hardest hit by extreme weather. … 

Arif Budi Darmawan, a researcher at the Bandung-based Resilience Development Initiative said: “Climate change makes the vulnerable even more vulnerable.” … The group’s coordinator Rikky, who asked that his first name only be used, said unpredictable weather also led to “illness, debt, stress, conflicts with local residents, and heightened levels of violence”.
