The average pair of jeans uses roughly 42 liters of water during the finishing process, this month Levi’s® announced its new eco-friendly Water < Less Jeans brand, which utilizes between 28 to 96% less water than in the current washing and finishing production cycle.
The Water < Less brand looks to:
– Reduce the number of washing machine cycles by combining multiple wet cycle processes into a single wet process
– Incorporate ozone processing into the garment washing
– Remove the water from the stone wash
The Levi’s® brand will continue to introduce these finishing techniques to even more supplier factories around the world with the goal of increasing the numbers significantly in Fall 2011.
