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.’
